Abstract  

The use of locally available mineral clay for the removal of radionuclides from the low and intermediate level liquid waste has been studied. Adsorption behavior of this naturally available inorganic adsorbent is reported. The factors such as contact time, nature of the waste, pH and adsorption capacity have been considered. These optional physico-chemical conditions suggest an effective use of this locally available adsorbent for the decontamination of the liquid radioactive waste at Pakistan Institute of Nuclear Science and Technology (PINSTECH), Islamabad.
