The Japanese government has agreed with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to oversee the discharge of radioactive treated wastewater into the sea from Fukushima Dai-ichi.

CAPACITY FULL IN 2022
The radioactive substances formed in the pure water, which is used to cool the damaged reactors at the power plant, are decomposed, except for the tritium material, thanks to the Advanced Liquid Processing System (ALPS).
The decomposed water retained at the facilities and increasing day by day is expected to fill the water storage tank capacity of the Fukushima complex in the summer of 2022.
