-Japan's food radiation limits set too high: Belarussian scientist.
-Editorial- Prioritization key to effective nuclear decontamination plan.--
The basic plan has been decided on. The central government will designate areas with radioactive emissions of 1 millisievert per year or more "important contamination condition survey sites," and will task local governments with cleanup operations.
.... One millisievert per year is the upper exposure limit set by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) for regular citizens.
The editorial says decontamination of the most dangerous sites should be first. However, the effects of low doses of radiation on the human body are uncertain. Areas with lower concentrations will continue to affect the population, to an unknown extent, while high concentration areas are being worked on.

Q and gnu-

We (anti-nukers) used to report these clean-up estimates on a regular basis back in the 1980's, when countering the nuclear industry's claims that their power was cheap, safe and efficient. Not many listened, unless there was a nuclear dump in their own back yard or one that was targeted for their area.

The clean-up costs for high-level nuclear waste storage facilities at Hanford in Washington state certainly rival those in New Mexico. Anyone else want additional depressing news from my way-back files?

Cleaanup costs at the Los Alamos Laboratory, New Mexico, estimated to cost over $2 billion dollars.

Cleaning Area B, 6 acres, took 3 years and cost $212 million. Cleanup crews had no idea of the area content- they found contaminated pickup trucks among the waste.

The lab complex covers 40 square miles.
Area G, 63 acres, is full of barrels of plutonium-bearing waste, and is of grave concern to the state. Underneath the area are canals to drain leakage, a concern to groundwater.
Authorities have no idea of the contents of many areas, since no records were kept.

In addition to the large on-site area needing cleanup, in the early days, radioactive runoff from experiments was allowed to run over the cliffs and into canyons and streams.

$358 million asked for the next part of cleanup was pared to $185 million by Congress, well below the amount needed to fill the next consent decree.

No doubt a large area in northern New Mexico will suffer for centuries.

The area abuts Indian pueblos, and prime tourist, forest and traditional and licensed hunting and trout-fishing grounds, as well as the town of Los Alamos.

A bomb would just aid the spread of radioactive material in groundwater.
Moreover, the melted material would be at a very shallow depth, so little chance of confining radioactivity from the blast.

Latest in Mainichi Daily News:

Prime Minister Noda expressed confidence that the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima plant will be brought under control in the not-too-distant future.
Noda said Japan stands ready to continue to export its technology and expertise to emerging economies seeking to introduce nuclear facilities.....

Hoshono, minister for prevention of nuclear accidents, hopes that cold shutdown can be achieved at Fukushima by the end of the year, and that substantially lower emissions of radioactive substances can also be achieved by January.

Here's a video clip and summary report updating what has been happening at the Fukushima-1 nuclear complex, as prepared by TEPCO and distributed by the nuclear industry promoters: click here for report!

Evidently the recent typhoon only damaged some of the video monitoring equipment.

There does appear to be some progress in stabilizing what is happening in this nuclear disaster. There will still be a very long clean-up involved.

TEMPCO is still promoting its technology for export, along with a huge inventory of highly radioactive debris (yes, I added that in).

I wish I could, gnu. Nuclear bombs are just like any other explosive in terms of producing light, sound, heat from the detonation. If it were detonated underground, much of the fallout could be averted.

However, moot point. Isn't that area on a fault line--or real near one?

I expect the brains in Japan have thought of this as a 'solution'. However, we've beat them to a few ideas before. Some questions for which I have no answers:

1) would the nuclear debris explode too
2) if it does, how big will the explosion be
3) what kind of crap will end up in the air/ocean
4) how big will the evacuation area have to be

????

It's likely that it would be nearly impossible for a Japanese to push the button. Their culture--despite their government which is a 'benevolent old asylum for the helpless (and connected)'--would strongly militate against that as a solution. Even the cretins in government are of the same culture, whether or not they're more or less pragmatic that the average guy/gal on the street.

Jack-

Not a bad idea assuming the workers are appropriately shielded and exposed for an appropriate period of time. That kind of plan would clean up the various "hot spots" in the plant compound.

Unfortunately the fuel rods that have melted and breached the reactor vessel and containment are under the reactor buildings, somewhere, and there is no way that I can think of to get at this high level contamination. Plant officials waited about ten years before they dared to tackled the melted fuel rods at Three Mile Island, and only about 1% (if that) of the public is aware that there was a meltdown of two thirds of the fuel there.

Somewhat more seriously: since there is a much smaller volume of really hazardous nuclear material than surrounding rock and soil, surely it makes sense to go in there with a mining machine and get it out?

Here's a more comprehensive update from NIRS from about 3 weeks ago:

UPDATE, August 22, 2011. The New York Times reports that Japan is finally getting ready to acknowledge what we have been saying in this space for months: that the Fukushima evacuation zone is an uninhabitable Dead Zone, and no one will live there again for at least many decades. An official government announcement is expected later this week.

The news follows release of a new radiation survey conducted by the government, which shows contamination levels throughout the evacuation zone to be much higher than previously admitted—up to 500+ MilliSieverts/year (50 Rems/Year) in Okuma, two miles southwest of the reactor site. This is actually about twice as high as radiation levels NIRS measured in Pripyat, Ukraine—about two miles from Chernobyl—in 1996.

But high radiation levels also were measured outside the 20 kilometer (12-mile) exclusion zone. Levels in the town of Namie, for example, 22 kilometers to the northwest of Fukushima Daiichi, were reported at 229 MilliSieverts/year—far above inhabitable levels. It is our (unconfirmed) understanding that most, if not all, of Namie previously had been evacuated, as well as some other towns even further from the reactor site. Thus, the actual Dead Zone is expected to be larger than the 20 kilometer radius.


Evidently there is still real concern that the evolution of this disaster may still continue, with specific focus on Reactor Unit-1.

"Radiation expert says outcome of nuke crisis hard to predict, warns of future dangers."
Mainichi Daily News, Sept. 13, 2011.
Hiroaki Koide, radiation metrology and nuclear safety expert at Kyoto University's Research reactor Institute.
"The nuclear disaster os ongoing.   with radioactive materials yet to be contained, we've remained in the unsettling state of not knowing how things are going to turn out. ..... I believe that rthere is a possibility that massive amounts of radioactive materials will be released into the environment again."
"At the No. 1 reactor, there's a chance that melted fuel has burned through the bottom of the pressure vessel, the containment vessel, and the floor of the reactor building, and has sunk into the groung. From there, radioactive materials may be seeping into the ocean and groundwater."
He believes containment water is still leaking underground. He calls for "immediate action must be taken to build underground water barriers that would close off the nuclear power plant to the outside world..... The important thing is to stop any further diffusion of radioactive materials."
He outlines other problems, and ends, "Recovering the melted nuclear fuel is another huge challenge. I can't even imagine how that could be done."
(italics mine).

It is worth going to the Mainichi Daily News website and reading the whole article.

Los Angeles Times Staff Writer

September 12, 2011, 5:58 a.m.
At least one person was killed and four injured when a furnace exploded Monday at the Marcoule nuclear waste treatment site in southern France. Authorites say there was no radioactive leakage to the outside.

Evangelia Petit of the Agency for Nuclear Safety confirmed the explosion but declined to provide further details, according to the Associated Press.

The Marcoule nuclear plant is located in Langedoc Roussillon, in southern France, near the Mediterranean Sea.

The site of the blast does not reportedly contain any nuclear reactors. The ANS said that the furnace that exploded is used to break down waste that contains varying levels of radioactivity.

The cause of the blast was not known.

Not a new treatment, but an article in the NY Times today. The following from " Nuclear News:"

"Mr. Monetta of Global Laser Enrichment, the General Electric-Hitachi subsidiary, said the envisioned plant would enrich enough uranium annually to fuel up to 60 large reactors. In thoery, that could power more than 42 million homes- about a third of all housing units in the United Ctates."
"The laser advance, hr added, will promote energy security "since it is a domestic source."

Because the method is simpler and more efficient than the old centrifugation, some critics warned of the proliferation of clandestine plants aimed at producing nuclear weapons.

(This technology, like any other, cannot be held secret, since there are capable people everywhere; it is the lack of industrial engineering capability that keeps less advanced technical societies from reproducing it.)

Jim-

Thanks for the above links. Some excellent updates and some predictable spin from nuclear industry shills:

"Events at Fukushima should not be called a nuclear disaster," says John Ritch, Director General of the World Nuclear Association. He explains to RT why he thinks nuclear energy is still one of the safest sources of power – and getting safer.

I don't think Director General Ritch is advocating the closure of all nuclear plants in major earthquake or tsunami zones, however. That would be a logical inference from his argument.
