The Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) evaluated the potential hazards pertaining to the storage of waste zeolite and sludge that were used to treat contaminated water. The JAEA concluded that there exists a very low risk of hydrogen fire or hydrogen cyanide poisoning due to the radiolysis reactions occurring in the storage areas.
The Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA), a member of IRID, conducted a project of radiochemical analysis of standing trees at TEPCO’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (NPS). This analysis was part of a study to collect and evaluate basic data needed to examine methods to process and dispose of radioactive waste generated at the site. The JAEA led this R&D project with partially funding from the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI).
