Is selective adsorption of uranium by amiodoxine a viable option for alternate renewable energy sources? Russia mines >1000 tons/ year, to?

compare with 1 kg/ year obtained using 350 kg of reusable adsorptive fabric by US researchers, who claim to be close to success.


Thank you @Andrew Smith for you've answered this Q. Plus @Vaman, coal users may heat a cup of water for tea, but with the population nearing 8 billion, the giants have huge demands so Russia, US, and others could consume all our fuels within the decade ahead. Would all those taking hard drinks stop and become teetotalers?

    If something is absorbed by some other chemical then by very definition it is not renewable.

    The chemical is USED by the process. And so that chemical would need replacement.

    Whatever you might choose to refer to, if something is used up and not automatically replaced, via normal natural processes, then it is not renewable.

      In terms of heating water, I grow my own trees on my own land. I have planted many trees. The fallen branches alone produce all my cooking, house heating and hot water. But I supplement this with solar panels for good measure. We must look after the world. It is the only one we have.

    Selective adsorption is the final stage in mining Uranium from seawater. However, it is presently too slow to be useful. To increase the concentration of uranium: Sending suitable energy waves into the seawater in a secluded region could help draw in uranium atoms from a large volume of seawater (the probability that atoms rearrange and accumulate based on their mass when energy waves are radiated into the seawater is the basis.)

      For example, carbon may be used (carbonization) and large secluded volumes of seawater may be explored for uranium with charged carbon agent and then the agent cleared off using the opposite charge to attract it.

    Stories and imagination are un bound. What we need heat to boil the water. How we get it does not matter. If they can prepare a cup of tea and drink it then, we should call it as a possibility. Otherwise, it will become a sensational news like cold fusion.
