2012 International Pyroprocessing Research Conference Presentations

The Abbey Resort

The 2012 International Pyroprocessing Research Conference was held on August 26-29, 2012 at The Abbey Resort on Lake Geneva in Fontana, Wisconsin following previous conferences in Dimitrovgrad, Russia; Jeju Island, Republic of Korea; and Idaho Falls, Idaho. 

Organized by Argonne National Laboratory, the Conference provided an international forum for presentation and discussion of the latest advances in pyroprocessing technology including separations chemistry, analytical chemistry, properties of molten salt systems, waste management, and safeguards for future nuclear fuel cycle systems.
