The continuous extraction of uranium from artificial wastewater by an emulsion liquid membrane containing di-2-ethylhexylphosphoric acid (D2EHPA) and tri-n-butyl phosphate (TBP) as the carrier was carried out using one stage mixer-settler. The optimum condition gave the ratio of emulsion velocity to the feed velocity 1:4 and steady state reached after five minutes. The optimum condition was obtained at the 90.91 % of uranium recovered from raffinate, using EDTA as the masking agent with concentration 5x10-2M. The total concentration of carrier was 3% with ratio D2EHPA and TBP 3:1. The emulsion liquid membrane has high relative selectivity after steady state with separation factors were UNi 115.43 and UFe 328.55. The result of the experiment showed that emulsion liquid membrane containing D2EHPA and TBP as the carrier have good performance for the continuous system.
