Abstract
A completely innovative bioremediation procedure has been invented to concentrate and eliminate radionuclides from the radioactive water of nuclear pools. This method is based on the capacity of microorganisms to retain radionuclides when they are growing by forming biofilms on the colonized surfaces. Preferably the bioremediation is performed before the water is passed through demineralizing filters to prolong the life of such filters. As a result, there is less radioactive waste to be managed, thereby increasing the profitability of the method.
