Fukushima Daiichi: Japan to dump radioactive waste into Pacific Ocean from Thursday | Oneindia News

Japan is to begin releasing wastewater from the wrecked Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant from Thursday, in defiance of opposition from fishing communities, China and some scientists. Japanese Prime Minister, Fumio Kishida, has said that disposing of more than 1m tonnes of water being stored at the site is an essential part of the long and complex process to decommission the plant. He also said that said authorities would go forward with the release on August 24 "if they encounter no obstacles." The decision was made after the government held a cabinet meeting to discuss the issue. But the plan, announced by Kishida on Tuesday, has caused controversy because the water contains tritium, a radioactive substance that can’t be removed by the facility’s water filtration technology. #Fukushimadaiichiplant #Fukushimaradioactivewater #IAEAFukushima ~HT.99~PR.153~ED.102~
