New material has potential to cut costs, make nuclear fuel recycling cleaner

Researchers are investigating a new material that might help in nuclear fuel recycling and waste reduction by capturing certain gases released during reprocessing more efficiently than today's technology. The metal-organic framework captures radioactive gases xenon and krypton at ambient temperature, eliminating an energy-intensive, expensive step.
