Fukushima News Roundup March 1st, 2013

A quick wrap up of some notable news at Fukushima Daiichi and related events around Japan:

A government panel that will establish Japan’s future energy policy has purged all members that held anti-nuclear opinions on energy. The head of the industry ministry said he hopes to hear “frank opinions” in the group’s discussions…

TEPCO has begun injecting nitrogen into the torus of unit 1 again. Hydrogen continues to build up inside the torus posing an explosion risk if it were to reach high enough concentrations. The previous effort to purge hydrogen was in January 2013.

TEPCO found another fish with extremely high radiation. This one breaks the previous record from a few months ago. The greenling registered with 25800 bq/kg of radiation. The fish was found in the plant port.

TEPCO decides to provide an over abundance of information about the process used to ship empty fuel casks to the disaster site. If only they would give this kind of detail about things that matter.

The government has admitted they need to start over on a process to find a central storage site for radioactive soil. The original attempt angered local residents.
