    Tritium Separation at Nuclear Plants

    Nuclear power plants use or produce hydrogen isotopes deuterium and tritium. Deuterium is used in heavy water moderated fission reactors, usually as liquid D2O, to slow neutrons without high neutron absorption of ordinary hydrogen.  This is a common commercial use for larger amounts of deuterium.  Tritium is produced in nuclear reactors by neutron activation and it…

    Fuel Cell Auxiliary Power Units

    From cell phone towers to temporary lighting to on-vehicle electronics, the need for reliable, efficient and low noise back-up electrical power generation is growing rapidly. Leading-edge players such as the US Navy are turning away from internal combustion engine/generator combinations to small scale fuel processors coupled to fuel cells to generate electricity. Power+Energy hydrogen flow…
