The ability to separate Ra-225 and Ac-225 from a U-233 or Th-229 source. This will simplify the acquisition of Ac-225 from its parent isotopes.
The existing process at the DOE starts with legacy U-233. From this, Th-229 is extracted. Ac-225 is extracted from the Th-229.
U-233 > Th-229 > Ac-225.
Fewer steps required
Simplified process for extraction
Ability to automate the process
Limited exposure due to fewer steps
Lower cost of equipment and labor
