A portfolio of radioactivity neutralization methods has been accumulated after two decades of research and collaboration with numerous inventors – a few of whom may be among the world’s most creative. Some of these inventions could possibly be re-engineered as new power sources. An ideal radioactivity neutralization method satisfies all these requirements: Is practical, economical, safe, and scalable. No rare elements for construction or fuel are needed. Operates standalone or needs minimal fuel or auxiliary energy input. Does not pollute. Can be stored and operated reliably and safely without burdensome maintenance in Death Valley during summer and the South Pole during winter. Is quiet. Inventor(s) is (are) reasonable to do business with.
A List of Radioactivity Neutralizaton Methods
Over two dozen methods of neutralizing radioactive waste are detailed in this list.
Additional methods are briefly described in freeenergynews.com/Directory/NuclearRemediation/.
A typical 1000-megawatt nuclear power plant operating at full power for two years accumulates the radioactive equivalent of 4600 Hiroshima atomic bombs. The plant is then shut down for a couple of months while one-third of the spent fuel rods are replaced - leaving 3000 Hiroshima bombs of radioactivity. It can be estimated that the proposed Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository would store something like 50,000,000 Hiroshima bombs of radioactive waste. The dump would no longer be needed by treating radioactive waste with some of these methods.
