Topics Fukushima No.95 Contributing to the Environmental Restoration of Fukushima
～Fukushima Environmental Safety Center was awarded for the first time the Prime Ministers Commendation for Distinguished Contribution to Disaster Prevention.～
Topics Fukushima No.94 College and university students learned “Remote control technology for nuclear disaster” at the Naraha Center for Remote Control Technology Development.
Succeeded in developing unmanned ship (marine drone) that can be used various purposes such as sampling of bottom sediment including measurement of radiation. For the development of the unmanned ship, the technology of enterprises in Hamadori District was gathered.
Succeeded in visualizing three-dimensional distribution of radioactive materials in a wide area “quickly” “from the sky”. The developed drone system equipped with a camera that can visualize radioactive materials.
Developing a technology to measure alpha-ray emitting nuclides originating from nuclear fuels instantly on site
Towards the contribution to smoothly promote the decommissioning works of 1F
The decreasing speed is about ten time higher than that estimated by the physical decay.
Towards the contribution to the safety and relief in using rivers
Visualizing the depth distribution of radioactive cesium in bottom sediment of lakes and ponds. ーTowards the elucidation of contamination status without samplingー
The method is expected to reduce the time, cost and work of the investigation.
Detecting the hot spots (high-radiation regions) in the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, and succeeding in visualizing on a virtual space.
The technology is expected to be effective for the decontamination and reducing the radiation exposure during the decommissioning works.
Research base where wisdom from all over the world gathers.
While networks where researchers in domestic and oversea universities, research organizations and industries can exchange are being formed, research and development for decommissioning and development of human resources are integrally promoted.
Research and development base supporting the development and demonstration tests of remote control instruments (robots etc.) for the decommissioning and disaster response.
Research and development base where analysis and research to clarify the properties of fuel debris and radioactive waste are conducted.
The facilities are used in steadily establishing basic technology for waste disposal of radioactive materials and its safety towards the decommissioning.
Research and development of environmental dynamics and radiation monitoring towards the restoration of Fukushima are promoted in Miharu town and Minamisoma City.
Contributing to realizing the cancellation of the evacuation order by presenting the research and development results related to the effective and comprehensive environmental restoration to the government and the local governments.
