April 21, 2016 – Physicists studying stellar explosions, the origin of life and just about everything in between could gain light years in precision because of a system inspired by a team led by Kelly Chipps of the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory researchers developed a fiber to adsorb uranium from seawater.
OAK RIDGE, Tenn., April 21, 2016—The oceans hold more than four billion tons of uranium—enough to meet global energy needs for the next 10,000 years if only we could capture the element from seawater to fuel nuclear power plants. Major advances in this area have been published by the American Chemical Society’s (ACS) journal Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research.
