|1. (WO2018140381) METHOD AND APPARATUS PROVIDING HIGH PURITY DIATOMIC MOLECULES OF HYDROGEN ISOTOPES|
|Title:||METHOD AND APPARATUS PROVIDING HIGH PURITY DIATOMIC MOLECULES OF HYDROGEN ISOTOPES|
An electrochemical hydrogen isotope recycling apparatus for recycling an isotope of hydrogen includes an electrochemical recycling unit, the unit comprising: an anode; a cathode; and an isotope-treated, proton exchange membrane operatively disposed between the anode and cathode, the isotope-treated, proton exchange membrane having heavy water containing the isotope of hydrogen therein, the device configured to receive a feedstream containing the isotope of hydrogen. A process by which high purity hydrogen isotope products are produced using an electrochemical membrane process in which all conventional water containing components are pre-processed using a heavy water containing the isotope of hydrogen.
