Title
(EN) EXOTHERMIC TRANSMUTATION METHOD
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE TRANSMUTATION EXOTHERMIQUE
Abstract
(EN) An exothermic transmutation method for at least partially deactivating radioactive material, the method comprising the steps of: - Arranging a dusty compound comprising at least a transition metal in a chamber (7) of a reactor (1) outside a closed container; - Arranging the radioactive material in said chamber (7), the radioactive material being and staying encapsulated in said closed container; - Providing hydrogen in contact with the dusty compound and with the radioactive material at a pressure higher than the ambient pressure; - Generating an electric field in the chamber (7), the electric field being applied to the dusty compound and the radioactive material; - Energizing the dusty compound by heating, then generating a transmutation of said at least one transition metal into another transition metal and proton emission towards the radioactive material, said radioactive material being at least partially deactivated, - Removing thermal energy from the reactor (1).
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé de transmutation exothermique pour au moins partiellement désactiver un matériau radioactif, le procédé comprenant les étapes de : - agencement d’un composé en poudre fine comprenant au moins un métal de transition dans une chambre (7) d’un réacteur (1) à l’extérieur d’un récipient fermé ; - agencement du matériau radioactif dans ladite chambre (7), le matériau radioactif étant et restant encapsulé dans ledit récipient fermé ; - fourniture de l’hydrogène en contact avec le composé en poudre fine et avec le matériau radioactif à une pression supérieure à la pression ambiante ; - génération d’un champ électrique dans la chambre (7), le champ électrique étant appliqué au composé en poudre fine et le matériau radioactif ; - excitation du composé en poudre fine par chauffage, puis génération d’une transmutation dudit au moins un métal de transition en un autre métal de transition et l’émission de protons vers le matériau radioactif, ledit matériau radioactif étant au moins partiellement désactivé, - retrait de l’énergie thermique depuis le réacteur (1).
