Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 32i
Budget: 08/01/16 - 07/31/18

Sea water contains about 3 parts per billion of uranium. With a total ocean volume of approximately 1.3×109 km3, there is at least 4.5 billion tons of uranium in seawater which is about 1000 times the amount of uranium known to exist in terrestrial ores. Developing efficient and reusable adsorbent for economic extraction of uranium from seawater...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 32i
Budget: 06/08/15 - 03/07/16

High-surface-area amidoxime and carboxylic acid grafted polymer fibers show high adsorption capacities for uranium. They are currently considered the most efficient sorbent materials for sequestering uranium from seawater. Durability of the sorbent is a crucial determining factor of the economic feasibility of utilizing this type of new sorbent ...
