The radionuclide of uranium (U) is major radionuclide contained in the long life of high level radioactive liquid waste (HLLW) generated from reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel. The radioactive waste have to be treated to ready for long term disposal. Separation of the U at high efficiencies greatly lowers the volume of the long life alpha radio active waste to be disposed and decreases the hazard level of the waste. The technology assessment of selective separation of U was carried
-out as alternative and strategy for HLLW management in the future.
