Spent nuclear fuel is being brought back to Russia. Why?

Spent nuclear fuel is being brought back to Russia. Why?

At the end of last fall, it became known that Russia resumed the import of radioactive uranium waste from Europe, which was stopped 10 years ago. This was reported by the German portal Tageszeitung. According to the publication, during the period from 2019 to 2022, 12 thousand tons of spent nuclear fuel will be imported from Germany to Russia.


Silent deal provokes quiet protests


Tageszeitung clarifies: the deal between the German company Urenco Deutschland and Rosatom took place without publicity. About it became known only after the request of the deputies of the Bundestag to the Ministry of the Environment of Germany. The start of deliveries was also confirmed by the government of North Rhine-Westphalia.

Information from the German portal did not immediately reach the eco-activists. Almost a month after the first announcement of the deal in the German city of Gronau, a small rally (about fifty people) gathered at the uranium enrichment plant.

The protesters stretched out a giant poster at the entrance to the enterprise with the inscription in Russian “Russia is not a landfill for uranium tails from Germany”, yellow barrels with the sign “radioactive danger” were placed nearby. To the journalists who arrived at the rally, it became clear: activists of the Greenpeace Russian branch brought protest creativity to Germany.

Ecologists of this movement held similar rallies against the "immoral nuclear deal" in several cities of Russia. Its members radiated optimism. They recalled that their protests in 2009 interrupted the cooperation between Germany and Russia on the processing of nuclear waste.

In fact, the protests of the early XNUMXs scared Germany more. The Germans were worried that when transporting containers with waste, tank depressurization and subsequent radioactive contamination of the area were possible.

After the completion in 2009 of the contract (signed back in 1996) for the export of spent nuclear fuel to Russia, cooperation between the countries in this area ceased. During the contract, Urenco shipped a total of 27,3 thousand tons of depleted uranium to its Russian partner, Tenex. A tenth of it returned to Germany already as nuclear fuel for nuclear power plants.

About 24,5 thousand tons of depleted uranium remained in Russia. Eco-activists told the German television channel ZDF, citing reports from Rostekhnadzor that containers with highly toxic radioactive contents in factories in Tomsk, Krasnoyarsk, Angarsk and Novouralsk were stored directly in the open.

Meanwhile, problems began to grow in the German nuclear industry. Asse-2 and Morsleben nuclear waste repositories are in disrepair. I had to use a temporary storage in Gorleben, but then everything came up against the high cost of storage and the fragility of the project.

Then the Germans quietly in May 2019 made a deal with Rosatom.

Indeed, in the coming years in Germany, due to the decommissioning of all remaining nuclear power plants, the volumes of radioactive waste will increase. By the fall, when the public became aware of the contract, six railway trains of 600 tons each (50 containers), or about 3, had already been dispatched from Gronau to JSC Ural Electrochemical Plant in Novouralsk (Sverdlovsk Region) tons of uranium waste.

For some, waste, for others, raw materials.


Rosatom commented on the horror stories that frightened the burghers of the German media. First of all, about the risk of waste transportation. Director of Rosatom for work with public organizations and regions Igor Konyshev explained to Gazeta.ru:

“In accordance with international regulations, the transport of depleted uranium hexafluoride (DUHF) is one of the safest cargoes - 7th class on a nine-point scale. For example, the fifth, higher hazard class is carried by rail industrial acids, alkalis, gasoline, coal. "

Alexander Uvarov, editor-in-chief of the independent nuclear information portal Atominfo.ru, confirmed in a comment by RIA “News”That depleted uranium, which is imported into Russia, does not pose any radiation hazard to the population.

They also answered at Rosatom regarding the storage of depleted uranium brought to Russia. It is stored safely. After processing, part of the material is exported abroad. The remaining “is the future raw material for the production of fuel for reactors, and its reserves are a strategic reserve for the future nuclear energy,” the nuclear corporation emphasized.

It should be noted here: Rosatom today has the most advanced technologies in the world. Experts admit that Europeans (Germans in particular) decently lagged behind us. For example, the degree of enrichment of uranium at the Gronau plant is an order of magnitude lower than at the Russian factories of Rosatom.

It turns out that what has become waste for the Germans, for our nuclear engineers - is quite suitable for use raw materials. Hundreds more tons of useful material and large export proceeds are squeezed out of it. To compare the order of numbers, let's look at the two most advanced countries in nuclear technology - Russia and France.

“In France, a country with an advanced nuclear industry, uranium is enriched, reducing the content of 235U in the feedstock from 0,71 to 0,24%. Reducing stronger is not economically viable for them. The depleted product is brought to Russia, where the concentration of 235U is reduced even more than twice, and this is economically profitable for us. There is no doubt that our descendants and residual product will be able to use in the next generation reactors. ”

This is an assessment of reputable scientists Albert Vasiliev and Anatoly Nazarov, members of the Public Council of the state corporation Rosatom.

They also showed the economic benefits of recycling. For example, up to 2 kg of ruthenium, up to 1,3 kg of palladium and up to 0,5 kg of rhodium can be extracted from one ton of spent nuclear fuel (SNF). The cost of allocating palladium is about 50 thousand rubles / kg, which is much less than the cost of natural palladium - 750 thousand rubles / kg.

There is another reason to treat nuclear waste carefully. “In past years, only a few elements were selected from ore processing plants at ore concentration plants to a certain concentration, which was determined by economic efficiency, and everything else went into the giant mountains of dumps,” the scientists say. “And now these dumps are used as large deposits, and with new technologies it has become profitable to extract many different elements from them, and this is not the limit.”

The main problem in dealing with waste is transuranium elements. They make up approximately 5% of the spent fuel. Among transuranes there are real centenarians (up to a million years). The technology of their storage is understandable and well developed. More complicated with the capacity of existing storage.

Now Rosatom is building a geological burial ground in the Krasnoyarsk Territory at a depth of 500 meters. The object is planned to be commissioned in the first half of this decade. It is believed that its introduction will remove the long-term risks that environmentalists scare people.

It must be understood that not only they are concerned about the fate of future generations. There is a worldwide practice formulated in policy documents of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). One of the main requirements of the Agency: “The management of radioactive waste should be carried out in such a way as to prevent undue burdens on future generations.”

If Rosatom did not adhere to this rule, the cry would rise all over the world. After all, there are many who want to pinch Russia for the fact that it has reached the most advanced technologies. Rosatom came out, and this should please us.

    Somehow, "advanced technologies for the processing of radioactive waste" do not fit, but with this:
    Now Rosatom is building a geological burial ground in the Krasnoyarsk Territory at a depth of 500 meters.

    Everything is much simpler, the Fritz paid the Kremlin "utilization", promising more help with the "streams" (though with the "streams", somehow it did not grow together, alas), well, not in the enlightened Europe, it’s "disgusting" to store this, and Russia the big one - there are many places for dumps, including radioactive ones, and the people are calm, it will die; it’s not known why silently and without indignation, it’s for you, not like “in France” ...

          I never thought that I would have to explain the obvious things to an adult, but if you insist ... 1) I will have to work 5 years longer. 2) I have to pay a higher price for everything (VAT increase) 3) I have to pay garbage dues (I get the same service that earlier it was only more expensive under the pretext of some waste disposal, which I don’t see, in fact I saw another money cut between interested companies) 4 ) Well, if you like nuclear waste and want your cabbage in the garden to be the most, you can write a letter to the president asking you to bury the waste in your garden.

            But it didn’t push me. 40 years of work experience and would have worked, but it was a pity for those who come for an interview, their data is recorded and they say call. Pension is enough for garbage and bread and butter. It is difficult to rebuild for those who received in an envelope, but here the pension is several times less. There are friends who worked in envelopes and built cottages, but now they cannot support them for retirement. We do not keep a garden, and I do not like to eat cabbage. And advice to you - do not drink cheap alcohol.

          And if you are a pensioner Anatoly three times (how old are you?), Then the reform didn’t hurt you - you are already retired. Although I personally have nothing against nuclear waste, if everything is done correctly.

        And we do not live at a depth of 500 meters in a granite stratum somewhere in the depths of the Krasnoyarsk Territory. Is your entrance exactly there? Your neighbors who burn gasoline or diesel fuel in their cars harm your health much more! Not to mention palm hydrogenated fat in dairy products, etc. Think about it - more to the point.

      What burial ground is being built in Krasnoyarsk? It has long been called Krasnoyarsk 26 called a closed city 200 meters under a granite rock, trains go underground. The radioactive radiation in it is less than the natural at the top. And this is not a burial ground, but the advanced production of fuel from waste for fast neutron reactors. That is, we take money for disposal and storage, and then we make fuel without buying it. This is beyond praise.

          Well, firstly, it is unlikely that thousands of tons will be directly put into processing, and secondly, a maximum of 10 percent can be recycled from these wastes, and the rest as wastes will remain. In general, nichrome is not fun. I read your comments above, I agree with you in many ways.

        No, it's really about another object. There they will only place for extra long storage what is no longer being processed (or there is no point in messing around). Depth of about 500 meters in the thickness of granite, without access to groundwater, in the earthquake-safe zone, etc.

But these are different things! And if the DUFU is the seventh hazard class, then the SNF, I think, is still a slightly different class ... And it sounds somehow strange: under the agreement on the export of SNF, the DUF was removed ...

      Everything is correct ..
      Since 1996, according to experts, about 100000 tons of dump uranium hexafluoride have been delivered to us only under contracts with Urenco.
      Now 12 thousand tons are going.

      Even if Russia has made a breakthrough and is able to enrich what no one in the world can enrich, only 5-6% will enrich ...
      Only here is the price of this enrichment is not cheap, as they pour into your ears.
      Easily accessible by the Germans themselves have already removed. Cream so to speak.
      Much smaller crumbs 235 in those dump hexafluorides.
      And through centrifuges it will go much longer and much more energy-intensive.
      Gold will come out of this enrichment.

      And not the fact that they will send him back to Germany.
      If they want of course
      because there are no counter contracts for the purchase of enriched uranium for Germany. And it never happened that Germany would buy enriched uranium from us ...


      The remaining 100 thousand tons (which remained after enrichment) will remain with us as real radioactive waste.
      And during enrichment, additional waste also appears - where to go then, the world has not invented anything without waste.
      It is only imported.

      And our waste, our nuclear production? They fly into space chtoli?
      We have no less than the same waste produced ... And about 1 million tons are stored with us.
      Of his own.


      And yes, out of these hundreds of thousands of tons of processed dump uranium hexafluoride, it is impossible to obtain either uranium or plutonium!
      Those. there will be no profit for the country.
      At best, hydrogen fluoride and fluorine. And that’s all.

    The most important question is whether or not nuclear waste is being brought to us. The answer is simple: No. According to Russian laws, radioactive waste is something that is no longer subject to further use, and if it is, it is not a waste. After all, household garbage, if the necessary technologies are available, can turn from garbage into raw materials for recycling. Of course, the question remains open and debatable. And everywhere in the world the answers to these questions are different and often this is the result not even of technology, but of a social contract within the country.

      The so-called "nuclear tails", this is quite a raw material for processing and it is actually being processed now. What remains in the residue is also not useful, but under proper storage conditions it is no more dangerous than natural uranium deposits. It is necessary to store it more carefully, but there are a lot of incorrectly stored waste, after which it is no less dangerous.
      Nature, the planet must be protected, no need to speculate on that, as many do. Not for the sake of nature, but for its significance.

        Even if you paid for it, then this money will not pay for their storage for a very long time, because you must constantly monitor the condition of the container, where it is located.
        And why, if they are safe, they are not stored in Moscow or in St. Petersburg, namely in Siberia?

          And who told you they refuse? The same Sweden is quite ready to store. And EMNIP Australia was not opposed. As for the danger, then you go to the plant and see how dangerous it is, any power plant with steam engines, for example, water treatment and regeneration of ion exchangers in filters, monstrous amounts of acid and alkali take to do this. And the first well-established carcinogen is ordinary soot from chimneys, as far back as the 18th century it was discovered that boys chimney sweeps develop testicular cancer by the age of 30. Coal-fired power plants also spray huge amounts of radioactive rubbish simply because of the huge volumes of fuel burned.

        The main problem in dealing with waste is transuranium elements. They make up approximately 5% of the spent fuel. Among transuranes there are real centenarians (up to a million years). The technology of their storage is understandable and well developed. More complicated with the capacity of existing storage.

        Burned fuel elements are only waste for nuclear power plants, but for us it is more expensive than gold.
        Radionuclides are often the only way to cure cancer patients, plutonium from there.
        Especially now, when the Africans collect kilograms of this plutonium around the world in order to refresh their nuclear weapons, and we have tons of this good, we refuel them in MIX fuel for RBN - we have two of them already industrial, both at Beloyarka, and the next one is already under construction.
        And what are the mixes good for? Yes, in terms of content it is ceramics, but it is localized, does not dissolve and does not flow, as in Fukushima or Chernobyl

        There are no such power plants in geyrop that suck EVERYTHING out of "nuclear fuel", there remain "nuclear tails"! However, with us too. But to enrich, use it can only be with us.
        But from the "tails", after enrichment, the garbage decently remains, poisonous.

    1. Now this point is not disclosed and the question remains?
    From the written article, it is understood that France can, but is disadvantageous to it, and can we benefit from it? Why?
    “In France, a country with an advanced nuclear industry, uranium is enriched, reducing the content of 235U in the feedstock from 0,71 to 0,24%. Reducing stronger is not economically viable for them. "The depleted product is being brought to Russia, where the concentration of 235U is reduced even more than twice, and this is economically profitable for us."

    2. And what then will be stored in the burial ground, which they are building, if they keep all the necessary and useful? Or is there much that is not useful, they will bury us all the same, if only they would pay?
    Unclear...

      The main problem in dealing with waste is transuranium elements. They make up approximately 5% of the spent fuel. Among transuranes there are real centenarians (up to a million years). The technology of their storage is understandable and well developed. More complicated with the capacity of existing storage.

      It’s just: we have electricity from a hydroelectric power station that flows freely and keeps these thousands of centrifuges in working order, while for others it is several times more expensive.
      And so we are paid for the fact that we sort this burning shit into nuclides and collect in safes and it all costs thousands of times more than gold - the implementation does not stop.

    Spent nuclear fuel is being brought to the Russian Federation, according to the terms of supply of non-spent fuel. Unprocessed includes Uranus 235 and Uranus 238, among other things. During mining, Uranium 238 is enriched to Uranium 239, which, according to school physics, after beta decays, is converted to Plutonium 239 - weapons-grade plutonium, it must be brought back.

            Is this our spent fuel being brought back to the Russian Federation, or do you think that the Russian Federation accepts spent fuel produced by the United States, have the States become generous? like they don’t need extra plutonium, not on fast neutron submarines, or on aircraft carrier reactors, is it enough that they were collected from warheads for reduction? It may be enough, but it seems to them not superfluous, if not really processed.

    - Now Rosatom is building a geological burial ground in the Krasnoyarsk Territory at a depth of 500 meters.
    Due to warming, permafrost is slowly becoming a thing of the past. In the same Krasnoyarsk Territory, at a friend’s acquaintance a quarter of a century ago, the house (and part of the cottage village) simply fell into the ground.

    The most interesting thing is that in Germany there are rallies against sending waste to Russia. The question for ecologists is - why continue to import into Russia this “strategic reserve”, if it, the Russian one, has accumulated up to a million tons anyway? These reserves are visible on Google maps in images from space: in Angarsk, Seversk, Novouralsk and Zelenogorsk. Containers are in the open in huge quantities.
    Rosatom promised that, that this problem will be resolved by 2080.

    Then the question is, why do we need a stranger if we can only dispose of our own by 2080 ??

    Here are the liberal trolls. You have already been told so many times - it’s not waste that is being transported, but raw materials with economically viable processing. We are paid for processing, we sending them the finished product - fuel, we also leave ourselves raw materials, but in a slightly different direction. After processing, these residues will go to BN-600/800/1200 type reactors. What is being built in Krasnoyarsk is necessary for the disposal of actual waste, with which even with our technologies nothing can be done. This is not only from "waste", it is from other nuclear power plants. They are few, but they are there and they must be safely stored.
    In occasion of "stored in the open." There containers are protected from ALL weather influences. These are not just bunkers with railway cars. They can be dropped, beaten, driven on them by car, they won’t be anything.
    So calm down already. It’s very difficult to listen to your nonsense.

          1. The opinion of reputable scientists is probably lower for you than your own. Well, this is not new for our person.
          2.so buy back. no one bothers you to do this.
          3. complete nonsense. leaves at market prices without the cost of transportation, which sometimes reaches up to 100 percent, especially electricity.

      What then were going to be stored in a burial ground, if everything is so useful and necessary?

    I read the interesting article and comments too! There is no definition of what raw materials are waste. What a burial ground is, what a warehouse of raw materials for future generations (It is not known what future generations will say about these dumps. Although the generation of those who import is obviously not going to live here! It will be better in Europe! Here they clean Europe for their future generations !!!) We import radioactive raw materials , we extract from it as much as we can of the raw materials we need, we reduce the harmfulness of these wastes - well, send them less hazardous back, let them be used by future generations as raw materials! Maybe they will also thank us! But will they lie ...

      Namely, the amendments on the prohibition of ownership of real estate abroad for officials will not be because "this will create inconvenience for them" !!!

    Google "NFC", and even better watch the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bKrdPy2ISU, and stop writing any nonsense

    I read somewhere in the media that our budget receives about $ 10 billion a year for the processing of nuclear waste from the EU countries, in my opinion, Mayak is engaged in processing, by the way, nuclear waste from Ukrainian nuclear power plants used to be brought to us too

    Meanwhile, TVELs from new fuel are already being installed at the Beloyarsk NPP. So these are fully renewable sources ...
    You can listen to Boris Martsinkevich about all modern energy, and not Greta Soros-Tumberg ...

      Fully?
      And why is the burial ground being built? If 100% import are useful and applicable?

        And in your opinion, if you enrich still, and even make plutonium, then there will be no fragments in the end? There a lot of garbage flies during the reaction. True, I have doubts that short-lived isotopes are especially dangerous, firstly, the types of decay are different, some are harmless, secondly, what emits more strongly will burn out faster. Well, uranium hexafluoride is more dangerous from a chemical point of view.

    Spent fuel, nuclear waste and uranium hexafluoride 238 are all different things. And before you write about everything that’s gone, it’s worth refreshing your knowledge of nuclear physics.
    By the way, last year I listened to the professor’s speech from the Faculty of Chemistry of Moscow State University. He said that he was involved in the calculation and synthesis of reagents with the help of which long-lived isotopes could be selectively extracted so that they could be converted to short-lived ones (half-life of tens of years). That after a time equal to several half-lives can radically reduce the radioactivity of these wastes.

    It would be better if Russia imported something good, not feces
    These "feces" will allow us to have extra weapons grade plutonium ...
    I'm WHY I’m sure that no country in the world would refuse it (plutonium) - by looking at the throwing of the US fleet towards Korea (“yes, we don’t need them with a slipper !!!”), and then with a sharp jerk back (“what a point ... not enough whether ")

    Since they are so good these feces, but feces (without quotation marks) What is not their turn?

        hi Greetings. You can’t grow a napkin in the garden or get it from reprocessing nuclear fuel .. So our scientists have no doubt, but not everyone can. I am against the import of nuclear waste. Let the “partners” keep it.

    In general, judiciously, radioactive waste is not only valuable fur, but half a pound of easily digestible meat recyclables in the form of materials and fuels for some types of nuclear, and potentially for thermonuclear reactors. This is about the same as using used engine oil as a drying oil.

    It would be nice for the author to figure out how DUHF differs from SNF and not bring everything together.
    Secondly, waste (in the case of SNF) is imported not for disposal, but for reprocessing. All transuranes and other radioactive muck are returned to the supplier for burial on the territory of the supplier.

    Somehow I looked at Googlemaps these secure repositories. A bunch of barrels in the open. Some of them are broken, the contents are dumped. It will carry everything by rain and wind and there will be nothing to enrich with the help of the latest unique technologies. Maybe that's why for future generations, officials are buying real estate in those places where the waste was taken from, and not where the valuable raw materials were brought.
