US scientists expect radioactive water from Fukushima at American coast by April

Έως 44 δισ. ευρώ η απορρύπανση της Φουκουσίμα

Η απορρύπανση και ο καθαρισμός της περιοχής γύρω από τον πυρηνικό σταθμό της Φουκουσίμα μπορεί να κοστίσει ως και 44 δισ. ευρώ, σύμφωνα με επίσημη έκθεση, ενώ για τρίτη φορά σήμερα ατμός έγινε ορατός πάνω από το κτίριο που στεγάζει τον αντιδραστήρα Νο3. 

Σύμφωνα με το εθνικό Ινστιτούτο Επιστήμης και Βιομηχανικής Τεχνολογίας, το κόστος των επιχειρήσεων καθαρισμού και απορρύπανσης θα είναι πενταπλάσιο απ' αυτό που είχε αρχικά υπολογίσει η κυβέρνηση. 
 
"Ελπίζουμε ότι η μελέτη αυτή θα βοηθήσει στην κατάρτιση σχεδίων για την απορρύπανση των δασών και των αγροτικών περιοχών κι ότι θα ευνοήσει την επιστροφή των κατοίκων στις περιοχές αυτές", τονίζει το Ινστιτούτο στην έκθεσή του την οποία έδωσε χθες στη δημοσιότητα.
