Power company "TEPCO", which office is located in Tokyo, reports that in the summer of 2022 in the Pacific ocean will do the radioactive water from the Fukushima nuclear power plant. This scenario was presented by the experts, according to the portal PLANETANOVOSTI.

In 2011, as many remember, the accident occurred at Fukushima due to the earthquake. The Japanese took all possible measures to prevent disaster: pumped water into the reactors to cool and freeze the earth around, to waste water is not mixed with clay. Used water is pumped into the tank, part of it is reused. Today the tank is almost full, very soon will need to decide the question of what to do with the radioactive water.

Scientists cited five possible solutions to the problem. So, water can be buried under ground, turned into hydrogen, to move somewhere for long-term storage, to evaporate or neutralize and drain into the Pacific ocean.

By 2022 in tanks to store the maximum volume of 1.37 million tonnes of hazardous liquids. The nuclear plant is no more space for new tanks.
