Multiple nuclide removing system practically in a shutdown state / Not purifying All β nuclides

Following up this article.. Another system of ALPS suspended again / Only one week since last suspension [URL]


On 3/18/2014, Tepco suspended the entire system of multiple nuclide removing system, ALPS (Advanced Liquid Processing System).


One of the systems called “B” didn’t purify the contaminated water. From the “processed” water taken on 3/17/2014, they measured 10,000,000,000 Bq/m3 of All β nuclides to include Strontium-90. This is 100,000 times much as the usual reading. The system “B” was under maintenance, but Tepco suspended 2 of the other systems too, which means the entire system is practically in the shutdown state.

The cause hasn’t been identified.



Downplay it in the beginning, and quietly add more information so nobody notices it. All for not letting the cattle escape. This is their strategy.

Le système ALPS de filtrage multi-nucléides est quasiment à l’arrêt : Il ne filtre plus la radioactivité β


Article lié : Une autre partie du système ALPS à nouveau arrêtée : une semaine seulement depuis le dernier arrêt

Ce 18 mars 2014, Tepco interrompt tout le système de filtration multi-nucléides  ALPS (Advanced Liquid Processing System).

Un des systèmes, nommé “B” ne filtre plus les eaux radioactives. Dans les eaux “traitées”, ce 17 mars 2014, ils ont relevé 10 000 000 000 (10 milliards de) Bq/m³ de radioactivité β dont le strontium 90. C’est 100 000 fois le niveau des relevés habituels. Le système “B” était en maintenance mais Tepco avait aussi arrêté les 2 autres systèmes, ce qui signifie que l’ensemble du système est quasiment à l’arrêt.
La raison n’en a pas été établie.

Le minimiser au début et ajouter tranquillement de nouvelles information pour que personne ne le remarque. Tout pour que le troupeau ne s’échappe pas. C’est leur stratégie.

About this site

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.
