Japan court rules government liable for Fukushima disaster

https://www.yahoo.com/news/m/faa3169e-5197-30cd-9100-c0d55e7659eb/ss_fukushima%3A-japan-court-finds.html

A Japanese court on Friday ruled for the first time that the government bears responsibility for the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster and ordered it and the plant operator to pay damages, officials and news reports said.

A massive tsunami triggered by a 9.0-magnitude earthquake smashed into the Fukushima Daiichi power plant on Japan's northeastern coast on March 11, 2011.

The water overwhelmed reactor cooling systems and sent three into meltdown, spewing radiation over a wide area in Japan's worst postwar disaster and the world's most serious nuclear accident since Chernobyl in 1986.

More than 10,000 people who fled over radiation fears have filed various group lawsuits against the government and operator Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO).

In Friday's ruling, the Maebashi District Court, north of Tokyo, found both the government and TEPCO liable and ordered them to pay a total 38.6 million yen ($340,000) to plaintiffs, a court official told AFP, without specifying the number of plaintiffs.

The White House Revives a Controversial Plan for Nuclear Waste

Yucca Mountain is back, and Nevadans are not happy.

Sarah Zhang
Mar 21, 2017

Near the southern tip of Nevada is a ridge politicians have been fighting over for 30 years.

Yucca Mountain was designated the permanent underground storage site for nuclear waste in 1987. It had an ambitious mission—to entomb high-level radioactive waste safely for at least 10,000 years—and a tentative opening date of 1998. But the process of even approving its construction has dragged on through four presidents. In 2011, the Obama administration officially mothballed the project.

Then it was Trump’s turn. In a proposed budget last week that otherwise slashes non-defense spending, the Trump administration found $120 million to restart an approval process for Yucca Mountain. The project that former Nevada senator Harry Reid, perhaps its fiercest critic, denounced as “dead” is back.

“You’d have to say the glass is half full for Yucca Mountain,” said David Blee, the executive director of the United States Nuclear Infrastructure Council, a consortium of nuclear industry companies that support the project. While not exactly exuberant, it’s the most optimistic assessment of Yucca Mountain in years.

Considerable challenges are still head for reviving the project. Assuming Congress approves the $120 million, the federal government faces deeply entrenched opposition in Nevada. The state has filed 218 contentions against the Department of Energy’s application for the storage site, detailing both technical and legal concerns. Going through the contentions will take an estimated four to five years of hearings and cost the federal government $2 billion—all before the shovel even hits the ground.

Nevada’s governor and five of its six members of Congress have already come out swinging against the latest attempt to revive Yucca Mountain. “Republican, Democrat, independent—there is enormous opposition to Yucca Mountain,” said Robert Halstead, executive director of Nevada’s Agency for Nuclear Projects.

The state’s objections to Yucca Mountain originate with how it got chosen in the first place. When Reagan signed the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982, the country’s nuclear weapons program had left tons of radioactive waste, and spent fuel from nuclear power plants was also piling up. The law directed the Energy Department to study several sites around the country, but politicians didn’t want to pay for the expensive and lengthy technical assessments of all the potential sites. So in 1987, Congress amended the Nuclear Waste Policy Act to designate Yucca Mountain as the one permanent storage site.

Why Nevada? The three finalist sites were in Texas, Washington, and Nevada. At the time, the speaker of the House represented Texas and the majority leader Washington. The amendment became known as the Screw Nevada Bill. “Clearly, the mistake we made in 1987 was jamming it down the throat of the Nevadans,” a government official later told Nature.

Nevadans also have safety concerns. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the federal agency that approves radioactive-waste storage sites, published a long-delayed report in 2014 deeming Yucca Mountain safe. But critics worry that groundwater in Yucca Mountain could corrode the canisters that store nuclear waste, causing a radioactive leak.

Planning a 10,000-year storage site is bound to be complicated; if built, it would need to last longer than any piece of infrastructure in history. But efforts really sputtered out after Reid became Senate majority leader and Obama took office—both of whom are opposed to the project. They never had enough votes to outright kill it, despite Reid’s boasts, because Yucca Mountain was written into law. So they stalled.

“The Obama administration was a paper exercise,” said Blee. “At the end of the day it succeeded in generating a lot of paper but no concrete action.” For example, the Energy Department needs a license to build Yucca Mountain from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. In 2010, Obama’s energy department tried to withdraw its application for Yucca Mountain. The NRC voted 2-2 on whether the department could actually withdraw it, which resolved nothing. Meanwhile, Washington simply stopped funding the offices working on Yucca Mountain. Staff were reassigned, and offices emptied out.

The Obama administration also appointed a Blue Ribbon Commission on nuclear waste that recommended a “consent-based process” for finding a new location in a state that was not so vigorously opposed to it. That process never got off the ground.

Since Obama never undid any laws about nuclear waste, the path for Yucca Mountain is still there. Trump’s proposed budget takes a small step forward. If passed, it would provide funding to rehire staff at the Energy Department to get the Yucca Mountain application through.

The House would likely pass such a budget easily. In fact, it has sneaked Yucca Mountain funding into budget bills in the past. “There has been a firewall of support in the House for Yucca Mountain,” said Blee. Illinois congressman John Shimkus, a strong backer, also plans to introduce legislation solving land- and water-rights issues around Yucca Mountain.

The Senate is trickier. A sticking point is whether to fund an interim storage project while Yucca Mountain winds its way into existence—there’s support in the Senate for it but not the House. In the past, Senators Lamar Alexander and Dianne Feinstein have also introduced bipartisan legislation on nuclear waste issues. With Reid as majority and then minority leader, it never got far. Nuclear industry lobbyists suggested that any pro-Yucca Mountain bill could contain financial incentives for the state of Nevada. (Local Nye County officials, where the facility would be located, support Yucca Mountain because of the jobs it would bring in.)

Once the Energy Department and the NRC have both the budget and staff, they actually need to go through the long-delayed approval process. Here is where Nevada’s 218 contentions come in, and the state is gearing up for a fight.

In fact, it’s been gearing up for a while—since Reid announced his retirement after an eye injury in 2015. “I knew that morning when I heard the news of his decision to retire following the injury that the Yucca Mountains proponents in Washington—in Congress and in trade groups like the Nuclear Energy Institute, the United States Nuclear Infrastructure Council, and the two professional societies, the American Nuclear Society and the American Physical Society—that they would all immediately start fantasizing about, ‘Oh, now we can have Yucca Mountain again!’” said Halstead.

The 218 individual contentions run the whole gamut, from volcanic-hazard estimates to corrosion risks to legal concerns about how the government has handled the process. The state is also preparing 30 to 50 new contentions to stop the project.

Assuming that the NRC approves the project, the state will put up more roadblocks. “The first thing we’re going to do is go back court and sue them over the radiation protection standard,” said Halstead. Nevada contends that standards the government used to decide that Yucca Mountain are safe are too lax. In a statement responding to Trump’s budget, Nevada’s attorney general, Adam Laxalt, also said to expect “many years of protracted litigation in which we are confident we will ultimately prevail.”

If the Energy Department does get its license for Yucca Mountain, it would also need to develop a plan for operating the facility, including a monitoring program to guard against radioactive leaks. Energy Secretary Rick Perry has said he wouldn’t rule out Yucca Mountain. On Monday, House members Greg Walden and John Shimkus sent Perry a letter detailing how to move forward on the project.

President Trump himself has made no clear public comments about Yucca Mountain, and it’s unclear how committed the administration will be in the budget process. One of Nevada’s major concerns about the project is tourism. Nuclear waste from all over the country would converge on Yucca Mountain, which is about 100 miles from Las Vegas. Days before Trump’s inauguration, the project’s critics offered up a new line of attack: Trains hauling nuclear waste would be running near Trump International Hotel Las Vegas.

LOCKHEED MARTIN'S NEW COMPACT FUSION REACTOR MIGHT CHANGE HUMANITY FOREVER

This is an invention that might possibly modify the civilization as we know it: A compact fusion reactor presented by Skunk Works, the stealth experimental technology section of Lockheed Martin. It's about the size of a jet engine and it can power airplanes, most likely spaceships, and cities. Skunk Works state that it will be operational in 10 years. Aviation Week had completeaccess to their stealthy workshops and spoke to Dr. Thomas McGuire, the leader of Skunk Work's Revolutionary Technology section. And ground-breaking it is, certainly: Instead of utilizing the similar strategy that everyone else is using— the Soviet-derived tokamak, a torus in which magnetic fields limit the fusion reaction with a enormous energy cost and thus tiny energy production abilities—Skunk Works' Compact Fusion Reactor has a fundamentally different methodology to anything people have tried before. Here are the two of those techniques for contrast:

the latest in the spate of robot failures in the process of decommissioning the plant. Last month, a Toshiba “scorpion” robot, built to tolerate up to 1,000 sieverts of radiation, was unable to withstand the high levels of nuclear toxicity in nuclear reactor No. 2. There have been a number of other instances, causing authorities to think of alternative approaches to the clean-up.


http://www.ibtimes.com/pictures-fukushima-nuclear-radiation-nightmare-2513928

To address the issue, members of Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) said the reliance on robots needs to be limited, with the job of collecting the vital data from the locations of melted nuclear fuel being passed on to newer, possibly more successful, technology.

“We should come up with a method that will allow us to investigate in a short period of time and in a more sensible way,” a senior member of the NRA, the government agency, was quoted as saying by local publication Asahi Shimbun on Friday.

While TEPCO and the Japanese government hope to start the process of removing molten nuclear fuel from 2021, they have faced great difficulty in gauging the location, amount and condition of the fuel because of the extreme levels of radiation.

Turkey Point had a minor incident a few days ago.

Quote:

“This was an event that could have had serious safety consequences and we need to know more about what happened and why,” said NRC Region II Administrator Cathy Haney. “We felt a special inspection was warranted to gather more information and also determine if there are generic issues that may apply to other plants.”

Journey deep into the Finnish caverns where nuclear waste will be buried for millenia

A hole in Finland is being prepared to contain radioactive waste for 100,000 years. But will the future co-operate?

By Helen Gordon
Monday 24 April 2017

A message proposed in 1993 by the US Department of Energy to warn future generations of nuclear-waste sites. Source: Peter Guenzel

Olkiluoto island, in western Finland, is a flat stretch of land covered by pine trees and bordered on three sides by the Baltic Sea. The nearest town on the mainland is Rauma. With a population of around 34,000, the town is famous for lace-making and colourful, wooden houses. In the middle of Olkiluoto, past kilometres of dark pine trees and a huddle of yellow, blue and grey huts, a metal shutter is set between walls of blasted grey rock. This nondescript doorway is the entrance to something unique: the world's first - and only - permanent repository for spent fuel. It's called Onkalo, which means "cavity" in Finnish.

User Image
Olkiluoto island, on the west coast of Finland, is 24km from the nearest town

Three of Finland's five nuclear plants are also situated on Olkiluoto. They are owned by Teollisuuden Voyma Oy (TVO) and Fortum Oyj, the two Finnish energy companies that are jointly responsible for Onkalo. Nuclear power plants produce three levels of radioactive waste: low; intermediate; and high. Low-level waste such as paper, rags, tools and clothing contains small amounts of mostly short-term radioactivity. Intermediate-level waste includes resins, chemical sludge and reactor components. High-level waste is the spent fuel from the power plants or the principal waste separated from reprocessing the fuel. This is the material destined for Onkalo.

Radioactive waste remains dangerous to humans for millennia. Onkalo exists to protect humanity from its effects. The facility's construction began in 2004 and, by the time it is completed, will consist of 60 to 70 kilometres of tunnels within an area of around 2km2. Disposal of the spent fuel will begin in the early 2020s and continue for the next 100 years. By the time the final disposal is completed, 3,250 canisters will have been deposited in the tunnels. The canisters will contain around 6,500 tonnes of uranium. The main access tunnel will be backfilled with rubble and concrete, and the entrance sealed. Of course, no one working on the project today will be alive to see this.

Onkalo must last for 100,000 years. A hundred thousand years ago, Europe was in the middle of the Ice Age. Homo sapiens had not yet arrived on the continent, and mammoths and woolly rhinos roamed the landscape. That period is far longer than any man-made structure has survived to date. The oldest Egyptian pyramids are only around 4,600 years old; Stonehenge perhaps 5,000. As a geologist at the site says: Onkalo will last forever...

Nuclear radiation is emitted when the nucleus of an unstable atom loses energy, becoming, in the process, stable and non-radioactive. This radiation can take the form of either moving sub-atomic particles, called alpha and beta particles, or electromagnetic gamma waves. Beta particles and gamma waves are powerful enough to penetrate the skin - although beta particles can be blocked by a sheet of aluminium foil. Gamma waves, however, require several centimetres of lead or concrete, or approximately a metre of water. Natural sources of radiation include cosmic rays, as well as certain rocks and soils. Human beings even have their own internal radiation: we are born with radioactive potassium-40 and carbon-14 inside our bodies. Every time we sit next to someone, we expose them to radiation. The effect of this radiation on the body is measured in sieverts. Public Health England estimates that in a typical year, a person in the UK might receive a total dose of two to three millisieverts (mSv) from natural and man-made background - radiation sources. A transatlantic flight, for example, exposes you to 0.08mSv; a dental X-ray to 0.005mSv. The annual exposure limit for employees in the nuclear industry is 20mSv.

In nuclear power plants such as the ones in Olkiluoto, engineers use nuclear fission - the process of splitting the nucleus of an atom of radioactive uranium or plutonium - to heat water, produce steam and drive turbines. The spent fuel that results from this process consists of dark brown ceramic pellets of uranium dioxide sealed into zirconium alloy tubes, or fuel rods. A single uranium fuel pellet is about the size of a fingernail, and four of these pellets contain enough energy to provide a year's electricity for a family of four living in an electrically heated house.

When first removed from the reactor, the fuel rods containing the uranium oxide pellets are immensely hot (around 800°C) and dangerously radioactive. Stand in front of one and you won't see, taste, smell or feel anything, but gamma waves will be moving through your body, hitting your cells and damaging their DNA. In most cases the cell dies. In others, it mutates. It is this damage to the DNA that causes the physical effects of radiation sickness, such as nausea, hair loss, vomiting and, in severe cases, haemorrhaging. According to the Princeton-based International Panel on Fissile Materials (IPFM), spent fuel from a reactor initially emits gamma radiation at a dose rate greater than one sievert per hour. Around 50 per cent of adults exposed to this level of radiation will die in three to four hours.

The World Nuclear Association estimates that there is around 240,000 tonnes of spent fuel across the world. Finland has around 2,000 tonnes; the UK around 6,000. These figures will increase - nuclear power is increasingly viewed as a way of cutting carbon emissions - and new power plants such as the UK's Hinkley Point C will come into service over the coming years. At current rates of production, around 1.1 million tonnes will be produced worldwide over the next 100 years.

At present, all countries with nuclear power plants keep their spent fuel in containers in interim storage facilities, which are located above ground or near the surface. At Sellafield, spent fuel is kept in storage ponds. According to industry experts, it's a situation that cannot be maintained indefinitely and arguably places too much of a burden on future generations, who have done nothing to produce the waste. According to a 2011 IPFM report, "Most countries with nuclear-power programmes assume the eventual disposal of spent fuel and high-level radioactive waste will require underground repositories."

Deep geological disposal aims to isolate the fuel for 100,000 years, so it cannot come into contact with the biosphere until the radioactivity has fallen to safe levels. Once it's below ground, the major threat to public health comes from water contamination. At Onkalo, disposal plans have been based on the KBS-3 concept developed over the past 30 years by the Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company (SKB), the firm responsible for nuclear-waste management in Sweden. It's a belt-and-braces approach, known as the multiple-barriers principle. The spent fuel is contained within several overlapping protective barriers, so if one fails, isolation is not compromised.

The concept of geological disposal has been advocated since the 70s. Although other ideas for dealing with the waste have been suggested - including shooting it into space, burying it in ocean sediment and dropping it into a gap between tectonic plates - burying nuclear waste underground remains the preferred long-term solution. Though Onkalo is the world's first geological disposal facility for high-level spent fuel, there are already repositories for low- and intermediate-level waste, including the Asse II waste-storage facility in Germany. So far, however, only Finland and Sweden have approved the construction of geological disposal facilities.

These repositories, however, are technically challenging and financially draining (estimates for a UK facility come in at around £4 billion). Critics of geological disposal schemes usually point to worrying examples of what might go wrong. Between 1967 and 1978, more than 120,000 drums of waste were buried in a former salt mine in Lower Saxony. As with the spent fuel destined for Onkalo, they were supposed to remain there forever, but the mine walls are collapsing due to pressure from surrounding rocks. There are also concerns that water seeping into the facility could get contaminated and move radioactive material to the surface.

Such concerns, of course, make the issue of geological disposal of nuclear waste politically sensitive. In 2010, political pressure forced the US government to abandon its expensive Yucca Mountain repository in Nevada. In 2013, Cumbria County Council voted to reject plans to build a UK facility in West Cumbria. In both instances, the state failed to convince worried locals that their plans for geological disposal were safe and desirable. "Can you ever really know how a certain material will behave in a certain location in 100,000 years time? If you put it down a deep hole and it starts to leak then you have left future generations with something they can't do anything about. No one wants a lethal pile of enriched uranium housed permanently in their back yard."

Environment Pollution in Luxembourg on April 26 2017 02:51 PM (UTC).

Trace amounts of radioactive Iodine-131 have been detected in the ground-level atmosphere in Luxembourg since beginning of 2017, but the source has not been found. Responding to a parliamentary question, health minister Lydia Mutsch said that a Luxembourg station had sporadically detected traces of Iodine-131 since the start of 2017. She said: "The quantities measured were extremely low, close to the threshold for detection." Iodine-131 is a radioisotope of iodine, which is present in nuclear fission products and in high doses can cause mutation and death in cells that it penetrates. Increased radiation at trace levels were detected across Europe in January 2017. The levels were thought to have been linked to a radioactive leak at a nuclear reactor in Norway in October 2016. The leak was caused by a technical failure during treatment of the fuel in the reactor hall. It was contained and, according to the Norwegian authorities, no radioactive contamination was detected outside the facility, the minister said. She added that the amount of reactive iodine leaked was equivalent to 10% of the permitted limit. Meanwhile, the source of the traces of radioactive Iodine-131 remains unknown.

Situation Update No. 2 on May 09 2017 06:55 PM (UTC)

The Oregon Department of Energy has activated its emergency operation center in response to an emergency at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Washington. ODOE officials are coordinating with the Oregon Department of Agriculture, Oregon Health Authority and nuclear safety experts at Oregon State University, ODOE spokeswoman Rachel Wray said Tuesday morning. "Hanford is 35 miles away from Oregon," Wray said. "We are concerned about Oregonians' health and that concerns the food we eat." The U.S. Department of Energy declared an emergency at the site at 8:26 a.m. Tuesday after a routine check found that a portion of a storage tunnel that contains radioactive waste had collapsed. The tunnels are hundreds of feet long and are covered by about eight feet of soil. The Hanford Fire Department is on scene and is reporting that the tunnel has caved in in an area approximately 20 feet by 20 feet over one of the tunnels next to the Plutonium Uranium Extraction Facility, or PUREX. There is no indication of a release of contamination at this point, the U.S. Department of Energy said in a news release. There were no workers in the tunnel when it collapsed. Workers in that area of the site have been evacuated, and those in potentially affected areas have been told to stay indoors. Hanford is located on the Columbia River near Richland, Wash. It has more than 9,000 employees. About 29,000 Oregonians live in the nearby communities of Boardman, Irrigon, Hermiston and Umatilla.
