Japan is forced to make in the short term, the radioactive waste from the 2011 and blew up the nuclear power plant in Fukushima into the pacific Ocean, to the dump, ” said the Japanese Environment minister, Yoshiaki Harada on Tuesday, during a press conference in Tokyo, japan.
The power company the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), which is responsible for storing the dirty water, it will soon have no more room for more garbage. The company has more than 1 million metric tons of radioactive water is stored.
When the storage space is full, there is no other option than to have the waste water to be diluted in the ocean to collapse,” said Harada at the media. “The government has yet to decide on it, but I think this is the one and only solution.”
According to an estimate by TEPCO, the company in 2022 is not out of space for radioactive water at the store. The Japanese government is still waiting for the results of a survey of experts, before a final decision is made.
The nuclear power plant in Fukushima, in 2011, was hit by a tsunami. As a result, to melt and blew up the reactor. Until earlier this year, it was the radiation in the area is so diminished, that the inhabitants of the nearby town of Okuma were able to return to their homes.
