Waste management

 Because the solid waste generated by the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station accident varies in types and is a large volume, it is difficult to handle it with the conventional system and technologies. Therefore, it is indispensable to study on institutional measures accompanied with developing new technologies.

 In the current mid- and long-term roadmap, "the establishment of basic concept of processing/disposal for solid radioactive wastes" in FY 2017 and "the confirmation of prospect for the safety in processing/disposal" by around FY 2021 are set as objectives .

 For those objectives, an overall study on the characterization of solid waste, storing management, processing and disposal methods has been conducted, and activities to integrate its results have already started. And it is necessary to apply them to "the establishment of basic concept of processing/disposal for solid radioactive wastes".

 And studies on the characterization of secondary waste generated by contaminated water treatment and on storing and disposing of it in a long-term and stable way are in progress.
