Cement maker leaked 13,200 t of 1000Bq/Kg water to the sea

Radioactive incinerated ash is increasing more and more.
Now every local government is having headache how to deceive the citizens to abandon it without letting them notice it.

They are starting to force concrete makers to use radioactive incinerated ash.

In Chiba, a Concrete maker Ichihara ECO cement admitted they released highly contaminated radioactive water into the sea.

It was 1054~1103 Bq/ Kg of cesium. They stopped releasing it on 11/2/2011 having the warning of the Chiba local government.
They released 300 t of contaminated water into Tokyo bay everyday, even from September to October,they released 13,200 t of cesium water in total.

This company receives more than 30,000 t of incinerated ash annually. As their incinerated ash was getting more contaminated, they could not help releasing the water.


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.
