Results are presented of a 10 weeks field experiment producing uranium from seawater by the so-called “adsorber-loop-concept”. For the adsorption process polyamidoxin (PAO) granulate has been used with grain sizes between 0.3 - 1.2 mm diameter. The performance of the adsorber and the efficiency of the adsorption process - especially with regard to high volume flows of seawater - are presented.
