The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station accident and restoration works have produced significant volume of radioactive waste. The waste has very different characteristics from usual radioactive waste produced in nuclear power stations and it requires extensive research and development for management of the waste. R&D works such as analysis of the waste properties, hydrogen generation by radiolysis and diffusion in a storage vessel and corrosion of storage vessels, etc. have been performed for characterization and safe storage of the waste. The detailed R&D plan for processing and disposal waste will be established by the end of FY2012.
