Fukushima Daiichi - Radioactively contaminated water treatment video

After the flurry of activity earlier this week surrounding the discovery of xenon at No. 2 reactor plant, Fukushima Daiichi site, and the resulting findings and solution to that situation, TEPCO returns to more normal business by releasing its second video of the second set of explanatory videos. In this installment TEPCO explains the cesium adsorption equipment, and some other on-site equipment that is handling decontamination of water from the reactor plants. Some storage issues are also discussed- particularly interesting is the long term storage for used adsorption tanks and for high activity sludge. See below for the new video, up now at the APR YouTube channel.

  1. Very informative video! Incredible steps they're taking. Maybe they can use the idea of storing that sludge underground as the core of a Japanese nuclear waste depository. Might kill two birds with one stone. I also would've liked to've seen the puddle from where that Japanese official drank a glass of water from! Heck, bottle and ship it as a novelty item! It'd sell!
