Resumen:
Una empresa italiana está desarrollando un material inorgánico de bajo coste para la eliminación eficaz de cesio en agua radiactiva que ha sido probado con éxito también en estroncio, níquel, cobalto y uranio. La descontaminación se basa en la absorción de iones presentes en el agua mediante un material basado en hierro y fosfato, seguido de la vitrificación directa del sorbente (y de los contaminantes absorbidos) en un cristal extremadamente resistente apto para eliminación. El proceso puede aplicarse para la absorción de cualquier tipo de catión en fase líquida y ha sido verificado en laboratorio en cesio, estroncio, cobalto, níquel, antimonio y uranio. La empresa busca socios con el fin de establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica y lanzar el nuevo producto al mercado.

Tittle:
Inorganic sorbent material for radioactive water decontamination company from Italy looking for partners to sign technological cooperation agreements
Summary:
Italian company is developing a low-cost, inorganic material particularly suitable for efficiently removing cesium from radioactive water, but also successfully tested on strontium, nickel, cobalt and uranium. The company is looking for partners to sign technological cooperation agreements with the purpose to bring the new product to the market.
Description:
The Italian company has developed an innovative process for the decontamination of large amounts of water through the removal of both radioactive and non-radioactive ions at any concentration level.
Decontamination is based on the absorption of the ions present in water by an iron phosphate-based material, followed by the direct vitrification of the sorbent (and absorbed contaminants) into an extremely resistant glass suitable for disposal. Generally speaking, the process can be applied for the absorption of any type of cation in liquid phase and has been specifically verified, at the laboratory level, on cesium, strontium, cobalt, nickel, antimony and uranium.
The volume of the final product is minimal, no secondary contamination is produced and costs are very competitive. As a research company, it does not market and sell products directly to end-users. The company is interested in developing win-win partnerships to bring products and services based on the company´s technology to the market. In particular, the company would like to find industrial partners able to technically test the new device and bring the technology to market under a technical cooperation agreement.
Advantages and Innovations:
The inorganic absorber developed by the company features a unique set of advantages:
·it´s a low-cost material;
·it´s an efficient absorber, able to absorb up to 10% of its weight in radioactive cations;
·it can be directly vitrified without the need to add any other component, keeping the final volume to a minimum and thus reducing the costs of final disposal;
·it vitrifies into a highly resistant glass ideal for long-term storage; and
·the process does not produce any secondary contamination.
Stage of Development:
Under development/lab tested
IPs:
Patent(s) applied for but not yet granted

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The Italian company is searching for an industrial partner, ideally a multinational engineering company supplier to the nuclear energy production industry active in the field of nuclear decontamination and radioactive waste management, and in particular radioactive water decontamination, to test and bring the technology to market under a technical cooperation agreement.
