Abstract :
This study examines how the cathode/anode surface area ratio affects the electrochemical reduction of uranium oxide in a molten Li2O–LiCl electrolyte. A bench-scale test showed that a low cathode/anode surface area ratio is helpful for efficiently attaining a high current density and producing metallic uranium from uranium oxide in an Li2O–LiCl electrolyte. A 17 kg uranium oxide electrolysis cell was set up with a cathode/anode surface area ratio of 2.6, and uranium oxide was successfully reduced to metallic uranium.
