IAEA Gives Little Insight To Fukushima Disaster Cleanup

The IAEA visited the Fukushima Daiichi disaster site after multiple failures ended up in the news. They made very few comments from the trip and reaffirmed they think TEPCO can handle the disaster.

What they did mention:

  • It will take more than 40 years to clean up the disaster
  • Technology still needs to be created to deal with the task of removing the melted fuel
  • Problems and failures at the plant will continue to be an issue
  • TEPCO should replace temporary systems with something more permanent and safer
  • Contaminated water is expected to seep outside the plant after “decades”

The Japanese government is still intent on sending everyone back to the area as soon as possible.
