Procedures for Disposal of Designated Waste in Fukushima Prefecture
With regard to disposal of designated waste, the national government is committed to securing long-term management facilities required for the prefectures where a large amount of designated waste has been generated and storage facilities are in urgent need, while considering the utilization of existing waste disposal facilities.
In Fukushima Prefecture, waste with radioactivity concentrations exceeding 8,000 Bq/kg but 100,000 Bq/kg or lower is to be transported to the existing controlled disposal site, while waste with radioactivity concentrations exceeding 100,000 Bq/kg is to be transported to the Interim Storage Facility.
Additionally, designated waste is incinerated, dried or otherwise handled to reduce volume and stabilize their properties in Fukushima Prefecture.
