Risky Removal of Fuel Rods Begins At Fukushima

18 Nov

World

Operators at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant started the slow and precarious task of removing radioactive fuel rods on Monday.

More than 1,500 uranium and plutonium rods must be pulled out of a storage pool in the plant’s reactor 4 building and transferred to a more stable storage area nearby, according to AFP.

It is the most dangerous task Tokyo Electric Power Co., or Tepco, has faced in decommissioning the facility so far, and is scheduled to take more than a year.

If the rods were to break or overheat, they could cause a nuclear chain reaction similar to the meltdowns that occurred after the nuclear plant was hit by an earthquake and tsunami in 2011, Bloomberg reports.
