Tepco to build over 200 underground structures of water glass to 13 m deep underground to stop Tritium spreading

Following up this article..500,000,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium and 1,000,000 Bq/m3 of Sr-90 detected from groundwater east side of reactor2 [URL]

On 6/28/2013, Tepco announced they are going to inject chemical material into the ground in order to stop radioactive water Tritium spreading underground. (cf, Tepco “Tritium is travelling underground with groundwater” [URL])

The report was uploaded on the website of Nuclear Regulation Authority, but it wasn’t published on Tepco’s website for some reason.

The chemical material to inject underground is planned to be water glass. They will drill the ground with the tube of 40mm diameter and inject chemical material.

They will build underground structures of 80cm diameter and 13m height. By building them next to each other, they plan to build an underground wall.

Tepco va construire plus de 200 colonnes souterraines en “verre liquide” sur 13 m de profondeur pour bloquer la diffusion du tritium

Le 28 juin 2013, Tepco a annoncé qu’ils allaient injecter des produits chimiques dans le sol pour bloquer la diffusion du tritium en sous-sol. (cf. Tepco “Le tritium se déplace en sous-sol par les eaux souterraines”)

Le rapport a été mis en ligne sur le site de la NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) mais il n’est pas publié sur le site de Tepco.
Le produit chimique injecté en sous-sol sera du silicate de sodium. Ils vont forer le sol avec une mèche de 4 cm de diamètre et injecter ce produit chimique.
Ils vont construire ainsi des structures souterraines de 80 cm de diamètre et de 13 m de haut. Ils pensent construire un mur souterrain en les plaçant ainsi en colonnes côte à côte.

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.
