The influence of microbes on radionuclide speciation concerning nuclear waste disposal
Granite is the aspired potential host rock material for future nuclear waste storage in Sweden. The Äspö Hard Rock Laboratory (Äspö HRL) today is an interdisciplinary research facility for geological disposal in granite rock. The research within the Äspö HRL programme involves international cooperation with various countries including Germany.
This presentation drafts the operations done at Äspö and the contribution by the IRC. Here the objectives and results of the study on the interaction of uranium(VI) with Pseudomonas fluorescens, a strain that has been isolated at the Äspö site, are presented. Explicitly results about the accumulation capability of the strain, TRLFS investigations and potentiometric titration results are shown.
Keywords: Uranium(VI); speciation; Pseudomonas fluorescens; Äspö; nuclear waste repository
