"Exceeding the background by tens of thousands of times": The reason for the radiation leak at the place of storage of nuclear waste at the Fukushima NPP is named

39

More than 10 years ago, one of the largest man-made disasters of the XNUMXst century took place - the accident at the Japanese nuclear power plant "Fukushima" caused by the tsunami. Then it turned out that the station was actually in no way protected from a natural disaster of this type.


The difficulty is that the problems with radiation emissions at Fukushima have not yet been resolved. The main one is related to the fact that the reservoirs, in which radioactive water accumulates, lose their protective functions every day, undergoing corrosion. At the same time, an important aspect is also that the Japanese authorities are largely hiding the real scale of the problem.

According to the latest information, announced by representatives of the Tokyo electric power company TERCo, a radiation leak was discovered at the site where radioactive waste is stored. At the same time, the emitted dose is tens of thousands of times higher than the norm.

The company reports the reasons for the leak. It is noted that the radiation leak at the Fukushima NPP is caused precisely by the corrosion of one of the tanks. At the same time, it is argued that the radiation level is increased precisely in the nuclear waste storage area, and "at other NPP facilities, the radiation background corresponds to the norm."

The statement about "normal radiation levels" caused skepticism among experts. The fact is that just a couple of weeks ago, a sharp increase in the radiation background was detected in various areas adjacent to the station. The minimum increase is 40 times the norm.

An additional problem is that radioactive waste, flowing out of containers, ends up in the ocean, which causes enormous damage to the ecosystem.

How this problem is solved is not reported at the moment.

    After all, this is high-tech Japan with super-reliable American reactors, why mention them in such a bad context. Let's talk about the criminal negligence of the communists to the radiation safety of the USSR! (Sarcasm)

        And now about Fukushima, how is the liquidation of the consequences going? These are such advanced methods that it happens after 10 years, right?
        a sharp increase in the background radiation was found. The minimum increase is 40 times the norm.


        Now give examples of Chernobyl, with such tricks as in Fukushima.

            This is Godzilla from under the ground, scratching the tanks with radiation water with claws, she does not have enough radiation for the growth of radiation.
            The Japanese are accustomed to radiation, they cannot live without radiation. It is impossible to watch anime without brain irradiation. It is not surprising that in the brain irradiated by the radiation of the Japanese, Sakhalin, the Kuriles and Kamchatka are Japanese soil.

    Zadolbali, their mother. The question is, where are all these ecologists who are howling in unison about the Belarusian nuclear power plant. Two questions must be asked.
    First: how did it happen that the blocks were placed in the most seismically active region of the world - without any testing for resistance to seismic activity at all? But according to American standards, they tested the SCHOB, withstood the hit of the airliner. Take a pie from the shelf. The certificates are American. Greenpeace. by the way, too ...
    The second - about the leak and the background is a good question. This is not the first time there have been sanctions, and not political ones. Purely technological. Or is Japan no longer a member of the IAEA? And the members of the IAEA do not have any obligations now, or are they only for Iran, Russia and Belarus?
    In general, it would be nice to ask the third question, but the first two are addressed to the IAEA, while the last is the UN Security Council. The facts of pollution of the Pacific Ocean by discharges, and repeated, was only the first one - it was established a long time ago, it is no longer possible to impose sanctions there, it is time to remove objects from Japan's jurisdiction, if necessary - by military force, they have already sat down ... the entire Pacific Ocean. Here, by the way, it's no joke - this is considered chemical weapons used, at least in neighbors like China, and now there is no nifiga funny

        Whatever one may say, but nothing good. Is it really strange that we in the Security Council don’t put everyone on the ears? Here it smells of such compensation that it will be enough for the whole of Russia.

          According to experts, about 300 tons are poured into the ocean per day. TEPCO for the first time admitted about leaks of radioactive water from the territory of the NPP "Fukushima-1"

      What does seismicity have to do with it? I don’t know how it is with the standards .. but the station suffered not at all from insufficient stability ..
      The reason is the banal flooding ..

      1.23 million tons of radioactive water
      Japanese authorities plan to drain into the Pacific Ocean!
      In Japan, a gel-like mass emitting radiation was found on the territory of the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant in the place of radioactive waste storage. The intensity of their radiation is 13 millisieverts per hour.

    Yes, this problem was not solved then, because there would be no corroded storage of nuclear waste, and now everything is going by its own accord, otherwise they would have begun the emergency construction of new, more protected reservoirs.

    "Exceeding the background by tens of thousands of times":
    Greenpiss is silent, Gretha too! But the current carries all this for tens of thousands of kilometers.
    They came up with sea water there to cool everything and dump it into the ocean .. High technologies? I remember the expensive Japanese robots in Chernobyl simply went out of order .. And then the men sat behind the bulldozers sheathed with lead and risking their lives removed all the garbage and helicopter pilots (the cache of this equipment was massive, in Ukraine, then disappeared somewhere))) Oh, the Japanese, see the current in the direction of Russia goes and you are happy to merge all the evil spirits for us for the Kuril Islands? I understand all this .. It's not for nothing that the world media are so silently strenuously ..
