Development of ultra high strength concerete nuclear waste container

2016/17 • $25,000
Commonly, low level nuclear waste like resins, filters, etc., is solidified with cement, packaged in containers; and then stored in a deep geologic repository (DGR). Waste containers must have long-term isolation without future maintenance. Such structures may be subjected to complex load...

Assessment of nZVI synthesis and mobility at a field trial

2011/12-2013/14 • $115,869
The use of nanoscale zero valent iron (nZVI) for remediation of contaminated sites has received significant attention in part due to the ability of nZVI to rapidly transform contaminants in controlled laboratory experiments. One problem that has hampered the widespread implementation of nZVI is...

Barrier systems engineering for environmental protection from emerging contaminants of concern

2010/11-2011/12 • $395,560
Canada annually spends over $2 billion in collection and disposal of waste. Barrier systems - comprised of a geomembrane liner (a thin plastic sheet) overlying a geosynthetic clay liner (a thin layer of low permeability clay) and a natural soil layer - are used to line the bottom of land fills...

Optimal remediation of arsenic-contaminated mine sites to protect human and ecosystem health

2010/11 • $123,500
Gold mines frequently have high natural arsenic concentrations in tailings and nearby streams and ground water. The optimal remediation(clean-up) plan should protect the local population from health risks associated with ingesting arsenic-rich solids or waters. In the case of publicly accessible...
