New purification system of reactor3 seawater not working to decrease radiation level

On 6/18/2013, Fukushima Diary reported “Tepco installed “fibrous adsorbent purification system” into the seawater of reactor3 [URL]”

10 days have passed since the installation. However, the radiation level of the seawater of reactor3 inside of silt fence is not significantly decreasing according to Tepco.

The new purification system doesn’t seem to be working as expected.

I see no hope in the old system of Japan.

Le nouveau système de purification de l’eau de mer du réacteur 3 n’arrive pas à réduire la radioactivité


Le 18 juin 2013, le Fukushima Diary publiait Tepco installe un “système de purification par fibres absorbantes” dans l’eau de mer du côté du réacteur 3

10 jours sont passés depuis cette installation. Néanmoins et selon Tepco,le niveau de radioactivité de l’eau de mer à l’intérieur de la digue de limon ne diminue pas.
Le nouveau système de purification ne semble pas fonctionner comme prévu.

Je ne vois aucun espoir dans l’ancien régime japonais

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.
