  • Economic analysis of thorium extraction from monazite

    2019-4-1 · Thorium (232 Th) is four times more abundant than uranium in nature and has become a new important source of energy in the future.This is due to the ability of thorium to undergo the bombardment of neutron to produce uranium-233 (233 U).The aim of this study is to investigate the production cost of thorium oxide (ThO 2) resulted from the thorium extraction process.

    2017-3-28 · when thorium-232 absorbs a neutron, it transmutes to uranium-238, a viable nuclear fuel. Originally, thorium extraction was a process that was high in energy and waste, using large amounts of heat and solvent. Modern science is working to produce thorium more efficiently. In this paper, several common thorium extraction processes are discussed.
