April 11 – According to a report by Russian Sputnik Network on the 11th, Vladimir Rakov, chief scientific researcher of the laboratory of the Pacific Oceanographic Research Institute of the Far East Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, said that the water in the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant in Japan, where the accident occurred, even if carefully cleaned, is discharged if it is discharged to In the ocean, it may still lead to the retention of radioisotopes in marine organisms, including fish, and then accumulate in the human body.
Previously, according to the TV station of the Japan Broadcasting Association, the Japanese government may announce the decision early next week to thoroughly clean the water from the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant and then dump it into the sea. Sources from TV station said that the approximate date of dumping the water was 2023. Based on the current water storage rate in the tank, all storage devices will be full by the end of 2022.
Rakov said, “If water is poured into a place where the seawater is well evenly mixed, it will not attract much attention; if the water is poured into the water will flow to the coast, the radioisotopes will enter the fish, and they will accumulate on the fish bones and meat.”
According to him, it is impossible to completely remove radioactive pollution from the water of the Fukushima nuclear power plant.
The scientist pointed out, “They are atomic isotopes. For such water, no matter how clean it is, isotope will exist.”
He said that after the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, individual isotopes with shorter lives may have disappeared, such as radioactive iodine; but there are also some elements whose decay process takes tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of years.
Rakov made it clear that “it is impossible to get rid of them completely. They will always be in the concentrates obtained from the nuclear reaction of nuclear power plants.” He also pointed out that for many marine organisms, such a planned purification of water would not improve the situation until corresponding international standards were introduced.
On March 11, 2011, due to a 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami, a serious accident occurred at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant. The surroundings of the nuclear power plant have not been able to live normally so far. According to the estimation of the parties, it will take about 40 years from the time of the event to finally clear the consequences of the accident and dismantle the reactor.
