Abstract  

Results are reported on lab-scale experiments on the removal of134Cs and60Co from liquid radioactive waste originating from Radioisotope Production Laboratory. Low cost and-simple nickel ferro-cyanide precipitation was applied for the separation of radionuclides from low-level radioactive liquid waste. Using the optimal nickel concentration of 0.75M and optimum cyanide concentration of 0.50M about 98% of the134Cs can be removed at an optimum pH of nearly 10. Furthermore, using the same method nearly 60% of60Co has been removed. The nickel ferrocyanide precipitation method could be used for removal of Cs from low level liquid waste.
