Assessing the production and dispersion of aerosols carrying contamination during Fukushima fuel debris retrieval is IRSN’s contribution to a research project undertaken by a French consortium jointly with ONET Technologies and CEA on behalf of METI and managed by the Mitsubishi Research Institute (Georges et al. 2017). The objective is to obtain quantified data for evaluating the risk of disseminating contamination when implementing cutting tools such as laser or others such as mechanical one, over the next few years, in the process of decommissioning the damaged reactors at the Fukushima-Daiichi plant.
