Abstract

The catalytic oxidation and adsorption is the most conventional and reliable method for removing tritium that is accidentally released into the working area of fusion power plants. The authors conducted a study on the effect of water on the oxidation reaction over a Pt/MS5A catalyst, and it was found that coexistent water inhibit its catalytic activity. With this result, a simulation study was carried out, and its result suggests that the installation of a pre-adsorption bed is very effective.
