Decontaminated soil to be turned into building material (2)


Up to 99.8 percent of more than 20 million cubic meters of contaminated soil generated from cleanup operations in Fukushima Prefecture can be recycled, according to an Environment Ministry estimate.

The figure was presented at a ministry committee meeting discussing the use of contaminated soil on Dec. 21.

The ministry plans to use the radioactive soil generated through decontamination work following the 2011 accident at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant as construction materials for public works projects.

From the next fiscal year, which starts in April 2016, the ministry will start the development of the technology and model projects for a recycling plan of the contaminated soil.
