You can’t “Neutralize” Radionucleotides by way of a chemical or biological reaction. This title is misleading.

True. Radionuclides can't be more hastenly transmuted into stable atoms as a result of chemical or biological reactions (with small exceptions seen with electron capture and internal conversion). "Nuclear waste" usually describes a broad range of byproducts that pose a radiological and/or a conventional industrial chemical hazard. Lead shielding can be considered nuclear waste even if no discernible radioactivity is detected. Laws usually dictate something is radioactive waste if it is above a specific activity per volume (check your local laws for details). Diluting contaminated radioactive metal waste into fresh metal to lower activity per volume is one technique used to 'neutralize' the hazard (i.e. levels are low enough that regular exposure won't result in exceeding limits set out in law). Likewise, using bacteria to reduce activity per volume (by spreading it out into sediment) is another way you might consider 'neutralizing' waste.

It seems by neutralize, what they meant to say was phase change from aqueous to solid so it wouldn't seep into the groundwater.

They should release it in Serbia. The place NATO bombed with 15 tons of depleted uranium to help the muslims and Al Quaida in 1999. \People get sick from the residue every day. Jan (((Stoltenberg))) the NATO official says NATO bombed them for their own good.

War crime.

The cheapest way to get rid of depleted uranium is to bomb people with it.

The bacteria neutralizes the radioactive material, it doesn't clean it up. So you can use it to contain waste sites, not to clean up accidents. However it might pave the way for such a breakthrough in the future.

Well, to bomb people with it, you would need to package it, figure out how to detonate it, then transport it over a bunch of poor folks and then drop the bomb. That's more expensive than just dumping it into a river somewhere.

I continually say this, they need to genetically mod bacteria to eat plastics. Dump them into the ocean, once food source is done they die out

Like they would stay in the ocean and only eat the plastics we want them to. They'll evolve into new strains at some point and eat all the plastic we are still using. Solve one problem and create a bunch of new ones. Life finds a way.

They also have many female scientists who got into their fields from interest in science rather than for womyn's rights or other feminist bullshit. There is no STEM gap in Russia.
