Treated water at Fukushima plant to hit storage capacity by summer 2022 at current rate

Treated water at Fukushima plant to hit storage capacity by summer 2022 at current rate | 08 Aug 2019 | Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc. has found that treated water from the meltdown-hit Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant is expected to reach full storage capacity by around the summer of 2022 if produced at its current rate. Tepco will report the finding, the first time a specific time frame has been presented for the issue, at a government subcommittee on Friday, officials said...The advanced liquid processing system, or ALPS, cannot remove tritium, a radioactive isotope of hydrogen, forcing the company to store the water in tanks inside the plant premises. When combined with stored water containing strontium, another radioactive substance, some 1.15 million tons of water was stored at the plant as of July.
