Debris from north Japan is only 1.13 times much as Great Hanshin Earthquake

Japanese government is distributing the debris from disaster area of North Japan to all over Japan.

As a reason of doing it, Japanese government is explaining the amount is too huge to reconstruct.

However, the total amount of debris is not so different from Great Hanshin Earthquake of 1995.

Because Kobe, the disaster area of Great Hanshin Earthquake is much more concentrated than the disaster area of 311, the debris was produced in a smaller area, but they were all processed within Kobe.

The amount of debris

Great Hanshin Earthquake : 20,000,K tones

311 : 22,600,K tones (113%)

 

Mr. Komichi Ikeda from Environmental research institute states, Disaster area is not troubled with the debris. Debris is not disturbing them to reconstruct. Most of the debris was made along the coastal area, but there is no reconstruction plan in coastal area anyway. If they process the debris locally, it can even increase the job opportunity.
