Aomori Reprocessing Plant Conforms to the new regulatory standards, effectively passed Nuclear Power Commission May 13 12:18

Regarding the facilities that are essential to the “nuclear fuel cycle policy” promoted by the government, and the reprocessing plant in Aomori Prefecture, the Nuclear Regulation Authority has issued a draft examination document that shows that the measures against accidents, etc. comply with the new regulatory standards, and that they actually pass. I put together the day.

However, full-scale operation requires a local understanding, etc., and it is also required to clarify where to use the plutonium to be extracted, which poses many challenges.
