It is shown in many laboratories and pilot plants that membrane techniques are more effective than other traditional treatments for low level radioactive liquid waste. By applying membrane techniques, energy consumption can be reduced and better removal rate can be achieved. In this project, research on a polymer enhanced ultra-filtration process for strontium ions removal was conducted. A dead end ultra-filtration system was used. Operating parameters such as feed pH values and polymer loading ratio were varied in order to optimize the system. Up to 10% of strontium ions in the feed were removed and the system can be further improved.
