Nambu clean center in Minamimasuo, Kashiwa city has been storing incineration ash and pieces of plants unprocessed because they detected high level of radiation since last September. It’s been repeating to operate on and off but because they are having pieces of plants over capacity, they decided to restart the facility as of 8/20/2012. Radioactive pieces of plants are incinerated with normal garbage.
This is the third restart with radioactive material. They stock 1500 drums of radioactive incineration ash and 1500 tones of radioactive plants pieces but they have no place to move them for now.
Chiba prefecture is looking for a temporary disposal site in north-west area and also Japanese government is seeking the place for the final disposal site in Chiba.
This is how much donation I received today. Thank you very much for your support.
The 40 USD (CAD) of the expense is for my dilation test of my detached retina. I had it in June too but medical care is expensive in US, and I won’t have a chance to have a proper one for a while so I wanted to get it done before I leave Canada.
This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
