Abstract

Review of Characteristics of Post-Accident Waste Generated in Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Site and Issues to be Addressed in Processing and Disposal Stages

The accident at Tokyo Electric Power Company’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station has produced and will continue to produce various types and large amounts of waste contaminated by radionuclides. The literature and published internet information on possible types of waste produced are reviewed from the viewpoint of their characteristics. Issues associated with the waste were selected and analyzed for each stage of the future waste management, considering the characteristics and properties of the waste obtained so far. The stages considered are current (temporary) storage, processing including decontamination and solidification/packaging, storage up to disposal, transportation, and disposal.

Keywords: Fukushima daiichi nuclear power station; Accident; Waste; Radionuclide; Waste processing; Disposal
