bacteria which can destroy nuclear waste are found

One of the main problems of use of radioactive fuel is burial of the production wastes which fulfilled the. And the danger to the environment is brought not so much by material, how many migration of radionuclides to the soil and air. But recently the group of the Russian scientists in places of burial of radioactive waste found bacteria which can help with utilization of radioactive material, dangerous to ecology.

the First obtained data say

that it is quite simple to create conditions for "work" of bacteria. Besides, microorganisms can be used as in storages of waste as means for protection against distribution of radiation, and on production and even in places of technogenic catastrophes. Now researchers plan to study in more detail behavior of bacteria and to develop ways of their introduction in processes of burial of radioactive materials. As authors of a research in an interview to the Radioaktivnye Otkhody magazine told,

Discovery was made during the research of underground waters of point of deep burial & #171; Северский» on which there is a burial of liquid radioactive waste of the Siberian Chemical Plant (SCP) belonging to state corporation & #171; Rosatom". By means of methods of molecular genetics scientists from Institute of physical chemistry and electrochemistry of Frumkin and the Federal research "center" of biotechnology of RAS found in tests of underground waters near storage of a bacterium which can transfer ions of the most different radionuclides (including uranium with plutonium) to inactive forms.

This and other news you can discuss in our chat in Telegram.

"The received results allow to say that such approach can be used during creation of a biogeochemical barrier to radionuclides when closing points of deep burial of liquid radioactive waste."
