One Million Tonnes Of Contaminated Water!
#1
16th September 2019 - Fukushima fishermen concerned for future over release of radioactive water

Extract:

Nozaki said he and other fishermen throughout Fukushima would continue the fight to keep the water out of the ocean. “Releasing the water would send us back to square one,” he said. “It would mean the past eight years have amounted to nothing.”

Comment:

There needs to be alternatives to dumping this huge amount of radioactive contaminated water into the Pacific Ocean. Dumping one million tonnes of contaminated water in almost 1,000 tanks at Fukushima Daiichi into the Pacific would make an horrific situation much much worse!

Since March 2011 there have been numerous media reports of Pacific Ocean fish, whales, birds and other sea creatures dying in large numbers. The ongoing radioactive environment pollution from Fukushima nuclear disaster has resulted in multiple Northern Pacific Ocean food chains crashing! Like the human embryo, embryonic sea life of plankton, zoo plankton and fish eggs, etc., are hypersensitive to artificial radioactive isotopes. This has resulted in widespread decimation of fish stocks and why large numbers of seals, whales and birds have been washing up on the west coast of North America, dead or starving to death.

Below is an extract from a comment posted on Armstrong Economics on the 17th February 2017, it points to widespread censorship of scientific research.

The censorship of this important research is to hide the real and documented effects of the Fukushima nuclear disaster has had on Northern Pacific sea life. If the populace actually new how devastating this nuclear accident has been to all life on this planet, they would demand the immediate shutdown of the nuclear industry.

Quote:

"I have just returned from visiting my friend, who is a senior cetacean biologist at one of the large west coast universities. While there, he described an amazing situation to me that has alarmed me greatly. He said that research at his university has conclusively identified the complete or almost complete collapse of several dozen food chains within the Pacific Ocean, all within the last 36 months or so.

Further, in “unauthorized” exchanges with the relevant departments in other coast universities, he learned that the numbers involved may well be more like hundreds of chain collapses in the same timeframe as opposed to dozens. Finally, in talking with authoritative figures in Vancouver, they apparently believe that the figure is likely closer to 1000."

"As bad as all of this sounds, here is the real rub. Regarding these findings about food chain collapses, mutations, and injuries, my friend’s university has instituted a policy that forbids them from publishing their findings, from discussing their findings (on this subject) publicly or in private with other researchers outside their own campus, or finally from taking “unauthorized” radiation readings as part of their research. The penalties for violating these new rules are severe: loss of tenure, civil lawsuits for violation of contract, and potentially employment termination."

Do these tanks just contain radioactive Tritium, as they constantly state in the press releases?

Need some independent testing to establish what is actually in those tanks.

Overview of the Multi-nuclide Removal Equipment (ALPS) at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station

http://www.tepco.co.jp/en/nu/fukushima-n...9_01-e.pdf

Eight years on, water woes threaten Fukushima cleanup

Tepco said the equipment could remove all radionuclides except tritium, a relatively harmless hydrogen isotope that is hard to separate from water. Tritium-laced water is released into the environment at nuclear sites around the world.

But after newspaper reports last year questioned the effectiveness of ALPS-processed water, Tepco acknowledged that strontium-90 and other radioactive elements remained in many of the tanks.

ALPS system at Fukushima No. 1 plant failing to remove more than tritium from toxic cooling water

According to Tepco, a maximum of 62.2 becquerels per liter of iodine 129, far higher than the 9 becquerel legal limit, was found in the water filtered by the Advanced Liquid Processing System, which was reportedly capable of removing everything but tritium.

Iodine 129 has a half-life of 15.7 million years.

Tepco, which gathered data in fiscal 2017 through March, also detected a maximum 92.5 becquerels of ruthenium 106, shy of the 100 becquerel legal limit, as well as 59 becquerels of technetium 99 against the limit of 1,000 becquerels.

EDITORIAL: TEPCO bungles it again in dealing with Fukushima tainted water

October 9, 2018 at 14:05 JST

On Sept. 28, the utility acknowledged that about 80 percent of the water in storage tanks for ALPS-treated water on the plant premises exceeded government standards for radioactive materials.

In 65,000 tons of treated water, the levels of strontium 90 are more than 100 times the safety standards, according to TEPCO. The levels are as high as 20,000 times the standards in some tanks.

The company had long known these facts, but was less than eager to share them with the public.

Jebus,

Quote from  The Asahi Shimbun Article :

"The ministry, for its part, should be held accountable for its failure to ensure appropriate disclosure of the information by TEPCO. The subcommittee should be faulted for concentrating its attention almost exclusively on tritium."

In the light of these revelations it makes it even more important to have an independent third party organization investigated what is actually in those thousands of tanks.

I agree vital1.

It makes one wonder about the status of all the contaminated ALPS filters that were supposedly generated from all the "filtering" that was done to create all those tanks of still heavily contaminated corium water.

always poisonous,  nuclear waste is never 'disposed of'  its only moved from one place to another.  
Thanks to our scientists,  they can always dilute the poison with water and call it safe!

But 100s of years from now, people will still have to 'manage'  todays nuclear waste.  What a tragedy
we are healthy with background radiation but unhealthy with the same dose from fallout

...Last year, Tokyo appointed Rosatom as a partner in a demonstration project to clean up radioactive isotopes in the waters surrounding Fukushima.

Tepco also called for help managing large volumes of recorded data and technology related to electronic monitoring of the facility and conditions of ***measuring “attributes about the surrounding environment.”***

Tepco Seeking Partners For Fukushima-Specific Technology 2017

http://nuclearstreet.com/nuclear_power_i...ZZQJOtHarU

archive/2017/03/23/tepco-seeking-partners-for-fukushima_2d00_specific-technology

Tepco said Thursday it was “seeking to expand its technology collaboration with partners in the long-term work to decontaminate and decommission,” the nuclear power plant that suffered the worst accident at a nuclear power plant since the 1986 explosion at Chernobyl in Ukraine.

In the past six years, Tepco has been working with many partners, in particular Toshiba and GE Hitachi (GEH) with tasks that range from water purification to sending robot probes into the damaged pressurized containment vessels to assess conditions inside the reactors.

Tepco has now established a website to solicit partners to help develop new cleanup technology. "Of particular interest,” the company said, is help developing technology for reducing the volume of waste, “such as plastic and polyethylene, used in water storage tanks that store RO-concentrated salt water,” and consulting services concerning methods for on-site recycling in otder to reduce the amount of radioactive solid waste being generated at the site.

Tepco also listed “electricity-related” needs, including technology for leveraging drones and man-made satellites to quickly ascertain the status of company equipment and the surrounding environment “in the event of a natural disaster.”

Not sure if this has been posted at CRL.

TEPCO Uses New Laser Decontamination System At Fukushima Daiichi

TEPCO has deployed a laser decontamination system at Fukushima Daiichi. This new system is currently being used to decontaminate the interior of the old bolt together contaminated water tanks on site.

Little is mentioned about the system. TEPCO did state that it provided a slight improvement in reducing contamination vs. spraying paint over the surfaces to trap contamination. We do not know exactly how it works, who created it or if it could be used in other ways at the disaster site.

http://www.simplyinfo.org/?p=17534

I saw this on twitter the other day after seeing the technology in action in a video from another place and purpose.

Keep in mind with Tepco using it to clean irradiated tanks, nothing nuclear ever dissappears except the target...
