[Air-cooling] Thousands m3 / h of air would be needed to keep the fuel cooler than 100℃ after 2018

On 9/29/2013, Fukushima Diary reported Tepco is studying the feasibility of “air-cooling” the reactors.

On 9/30/2013, Tepco stated it may be possible after 2018.

It would require thousands m3 of air per hour to keep the molten fuel debris cooler than 100℃.





You can ignore the truth but the truth won’t ignore you.

[Climatisation] Des milliers de m³/ h d’air vont être nécessaires pour maintenir le combustible en-dessous de 100 ℃ à partir de 2018


Le 29 septembre 2013, le Fukushima Diary publiait que Tepco étudiait la faisabilité d’une  “climatisation” des réacteurs.
Le 30 septembre 2013, Tepco affirme que ce sera possible à partir de 2018.
Il faudra des milliers de m³ d’air par heure pour maintenir les débris de combustibles fondus en dessous de 100 ℃.


Vous pouvez ignorer la vérité mais la vérité ne vous ignorera pas.

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.
