Submits 3 Proposals On Fukushima Fuel Removal

printer-with-paper-stackOur research team has submitted three novel proposals to IRID related to the fuel location and removal challenges at Fukushima Daiichi.

We previously submitted a series of proposals during the call for solutions to the contaminated water issues at the disaster site.

The new proposals are now in the review process. IRID will release a report on all the submissions once they have reviewed them and determined what ones should be implemented.

The corium cone submission uses a known locating theory for fuel debris and creates a method to potentially locate fuel that may have left the reactor building along with monitoring technology to fully understand any findings.

Ongoing data has shown the high potential for fuel debris to be located in the torus room. Findings at Fukushima are compared to known fuel debris  information from Chernobyl to estimate debris composition. A simple but novel process is suggested for removal of this pumice type fuel debris.

Small deposits of fuel debris are anticipated to be found in various locations inside and outside of containment where they have adhered to surfaces, based on visual evidence. A novel grinding head is proposed to remove these smaller deposits where traditional cutting technology would not be practical.
