4,200,000,000Bq of β and 10,000,000 Bq of γ nuclides leaked from ALPS again / New technology never get into operation

Extremely high level of radiation leaked from multiple nuclide removing system ALPS (Advanced Liquid Processing System). This system has been continuously in the serious trouble since they started the hot test last Spring. However, Tepco doesn’t change their plan to try to purify 1,960 m3 / day of contaminated water from this Summer. ALPS is [...]

[Assumption overturned] Bypass water already exceeded the safety limit / Tepco “won’t stop pumping up”

Following up this article.. Tepco started pumping up the bypass water to discharge / Tritium density jumped up to 87% of desired safety level [URL]   The tritium density already exceeded their desired safety limit before even starting to discharge.   It was one of the 12 bypass wells. From the sample of 4/15/2014, Tepco [...]

10 μSv/h from a container to ship to Taiwan / Honmoku pier in Yokohama

4.5 ~ 10 μSv/h was measured from a container on 4/13/2014. It was to be shipped from Honmoku pier to Taiwan, but it is not announced what is specifically in the container.   The employee of Japan Post Holdings detected the radiation level over 5 μSv/h before loading, which is higher than the safety limit [...]

[Tepco's upward revision] “80 BILLION was actually 280 BILLION Bq/m3 in last summer’s leakage”

Following up this article.. Leaked all β of “300m3 leakage accident” was also underestimated / INES level might be increased [URL]   All β nuclide density was 280,000,000,000 Bq/m3 in the leaked tank water last summer. All β nuclide means the collective of the nuclides to include Strontium-90. Tepco announced the all β nuclide density [...]
