Years ago, I was involved in noble gas clean-up at nuclear power  plants.  
Activated carbon is used to hold up noble gases for decay.   That is, the carbon 
traps the gas then releases it, then traps it again.   The longer the filter 
train, the longer the holdup.  So you can get a  temporary hold on Kr-85 with

Is it  possible to capture krypton-85 gas using activated carbon or other
filtration  methods?

thank you
