    福島第一原発事故で発生したALPS処理汚染水を海に流すのはやめてください。

    団体としての署名 English Version 福島第一原発で貯蔵中の汚染水の海洋放出方針を撤回し、地上での保管と固化方針への切り替えを求めます 福島第一原発の事故の後始末で発生している汚染水を環境に放出する計画が政府によって進められています。 汚染水は現時点で約120万㎥に達し、中に処理装置でも取り除けないトリチウム(放射性水素)が860兆ベクレル含まれています。現在、タンクにためられている水の7割以上に、ストロンチウム90、ヨウ素129などの放射性物質が、全体として排出濃度基準を超えて含まれています。これらの放射性物質は二次処理をしても、完全に取り除くことができません。政府・東京電力はこれ以外にも建屋内に1200兆ベクレルのトリチウムが存在しているとしています。放出量は将来的にも増えていくと考えられます。 政府案は海洋もしくは大気中への放出ですが、最終的には海洋放出を決定したいと考えています。 環境の放射能汚染の増大は将来の生命への脅威となります。 これに対して、福島県沿岸の漁業協同組合の人たちが強く反対しています。漁業への打撃は彼らの死活問題です。また、南側隣県の茨城県も反対の声を上げています。しかし、政府は環境への放出を強行しようとしています。福島県での形式的な意見聴取や一般からの意見募集を経て、この夏までに環境放出を正式に決定する予定です。 これに対して国内のいくつかの市民グループも同様に反対し、なんとか海洋放出の方針を撤回させ、地上での保管と固化処理という方針に切り替えさせたいと考えています。 2020年4月22日 呼びかけ:原子力資料情報室No Nukes Asia Forum JapanFoE Japan 参考)ALPS処理汚染水、大気・海洋放出で本当にいいの? パブコメを出そう!(〆切6月15日)https://www.foejapan.org/energy/fukushima/200407.html

    Please do not throw the water generated by the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster into the sea

    > Organizational sign/団体としての署名 日本語版 Demanding that contaminated water being stored at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station NOT be discharged into the sea, and instead stored on land and solidified.  The Japanese government intends to proceed with its plan for environmental release of radioactive contaminated water that has been accumulating since the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident in 2011. At present, approximately 1.2 million m3 of contaminated water is being stored. This water contains tritium (radioactive hydrogen) having 860 trillion becquerels of radiation, which cannot be removed using conventional equipment like ALPS. At present, more than 70% of the water stored in the tanks contains radioactive substances such as strontium 90, cesium 137, and iodine 129, totally exceeding emission concentration standards. These radioactive substances cannot be completely removed by secondary treatment. The government and Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) have stated that an additional 1,200 trillion becquerels worth of tritium are still contained in the plant buildings, which means that more contaminated water is likely to be released in the future.Instead of discharging contaminated water into the ocean, another option the government is considering is to vaporize it, but ocean discharge is currently seen as the preferred option.Increasing the amount of radioactive contamination in the environment threatens future life. Fukushima fishing unions are strongly opposed to ocean discharge. For them this threat to the fishing industry is a matter of life and death. In Ibaraki Prefecture, immediately south of Fukushima, there is also strong opposition to ocean release. However, the government is still insisting that environmental discharge is the only option. Fukushima Prefecture authorities have held token public hearings and called for public comments, but their plan is to announce, by the summer of 2020, that the contaminated water will be discharged into the environment.Several civil society groups in Japan are voicing their opposition, demanding that the ocean discharge plan be withdrawn, and instead that the contaminated water be stored on land and solidified.
