PERSPECTIVES ON FUKUSHIMA » Nuclear Decommissioning Report I recently attended the Environmental Remediation Technologies Summit in Tokyo, Japan, along with colleagues from 32 other non-Japanese firms. The summit was facilitated by the U.S. Departments of Energy, Commerce, and State; with cooperation from Japan’s Ministry of Environment, the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), and officials from Fukushima prefecture. The objectives for the visit were to: 1) provide a status of cleanup and recovery activities not only at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, but also the 18,000 square miles of contaminated lands, and 2) facilitate discussions related to the latest D&D technologies that could add value in the cleanup effort. One of the most compelling lessons learned from the accident is that there was and continues to be a lack of a central, comprehensive response plan. Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), the utility that owns the Fukushima Daiichi Plant, is focused on cleanup in and around the immediate area of the plant.

Japan poll finds 74% support nuclear phase-out Almost three-quarters of Japanese respondents to a newspaper poll published Tuesday favour a gradual phase-out of nuclear energy in the wake of the Fukushima atomic accident. The Asahi Shimbun daily said in its weekend opinion poll that only 14 percent were against such a gradual reduction. The poll also showed 64 percent of respondents believed "natural energy" such as wind and solar power would replace nuclear power in the future, while 24 percent said they did not think so. The Fukushima nuclear plant, on the northeastern coast facing the Pacific, has leaked radiation since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami crippled cooling systems at the plant, leading to reactor meltdowns. The worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl in 1986 has forced the evacuation of tens of thousands of people from their houses, businesses and farms in a 20-kilometre (12-mile) radius around the plant.
