Decontamination Pilot Projects: Building a Knowledge Base for Fukushima Environmental Remediation

Abstract

After the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear accident, Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA)was chosen by the Government to conduct decontamination pilotprojects at selected sitesin the contaminated area of Fukushima. Despite tight boundary conditions in terms of timescale and resources, the projectsprovide a good basis for developing recommendations on how to assure clean-up efficiency and worker safety and reduce time, cost, subsequent waste management and environmental impact. The results of the project can be summarised in terms of site characterisation and data interpretation, clean-up and waste minimisation and storage.
