A rapid and complete destruction of organics in the supercritical water oxidation (SCWO) of the Co-exchanged resin was found experimentally. Due to an extremely low solubility of CoSO4 salt formed and separated effectively in the SCWO process, a minimal release of the nuclide Co would be warranted. In addition, recycling of Co nuclides is also possible by decomposition of the CoSO4 species at elevated temperatures (>1040 K).
