Appliion of Molten Salts in the Reprocessing of Spent …

Molten salts are an important reaction medium in the reprocessing of spent oxide nuclear fuel. In the conventional process, the oxide mix in the spent fuel is first reduced chemically in a melt of LiCl to the corresponding metals. The metal mix formed is then separated in a eutectic melt of LiCl/KCl by electro-deposition. The FFC-Caridge Process is a relatively new metallurgical oxide

Metallothermic Reduction - an overview | ScienceDirect …

Smelting to give the metals involves metallothermic reduction of fluorides or oxides, or electrochemical methods. Metal oxides are converted to fluorides by HF/Ar and purified by melting in an HF/Ar atmosphere. The fluorides are then reduced by the more electropositive calcium metal.

Direct electrochemical conversion of metal oxides to …

Abstract Little over a decade ago, Professor Derek Fray’s group at the University of Caridge, UK, discovered that a solid metal oxide can be directly reduced to metal by hodically polarising it in a molten salt electrolytic cell. The simple electrochemical process attracted worldwide attention and significant efforts have been made since then to study and develop the process for
