The earthquake last night (10/7) was big and terrified. Is the nuclear power plant okay every time by earthquake? The anxiety goes through our mind.
The Regular Learning Session in November is an online lecture with Atsuo Watanabe as a lecturer, “Why do not restart the aging nuclear power plant”, which is directly linked to such anxiety. The Tokai No. 2 nuclear power plant has passed its forty year service life, but is trying to restart the plant by extending it by twenty years. What is dangerous in aging nuclear power plants? Let’s learn together.
*When: Saturday, November 6, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. *Method: Online lecture by zoom *Title: “Reasons for not restarting aging nuclear power plants” *Lecturer: Atsuo Watanabe (former nuclear reactor designer) *How to participate: At 9:30 a.m. on the day, we will post the URL necessary to participate by zoom at the top of the website.

The issue of contaminated water at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, which the government has decided to release to the oceans. However, many oppositions and questions have been raised. This is because contaminated water contains a large amount of radioactive material called tritium. This time, Mr. Kawata, who specializes in molecular biology and environmental science, will talk about what tritium is, why it cannot be removed, what is the problem, what happens with tritium contamination, and its processing technology.
