Tanner Hill Workshop Zoom Talk
Title: Latest Status of ALPS Treated Water Treatment at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station
Date: 12 August 2023, 10am to 12noon
(N America W coast 11 Aug 2023, 7 to 9 pm)
Venue – Tanner Hill 5/F Music Room
Speaker – Prof. Takashi HIBIKI
Moderator – Anthony Tsui
Decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, which was damaged by the Great East Japan Earthquake 12 years ago, is steadily progressing. In order to complete the decommissioning work, the location of 1,000 tanks storing water used to cool the reactors must be used for decommissioning workspace. Advanced Liquid Processing System (ALPS) is a device that purifies water containing radioactive materials and makes it possible to discharge it into the ocean. The water thus purified is called ALPS-treated water. This seminar will provide an overview of the plan for the discharge of ALPS-treated water into the ocean and its safety.
