S. Korea rejected contaminated scrap iron imported from Japan / Radiation level 5 times much as safety limit

On 8/11/2014, the government of South Korea announced they rejected scrap iron from Japan.

It was imported on 8/7/2014.

They measured Cs-137 from 20 kg of the total volume 20 t. The actual density is not announced.

The surface radiation level was 5.32 μSv/h, which is over 5 times much as their safety limit.

It is not known where this scrap iron was from.

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.
