“It’s because I didn’t go inside.” Even the release date is ‘undecided’

 when quoting.

◇Anchor> After going through these times, Japan’s Tokyo Electric Power began discharging contaminated water to the ocean. I can’t be certain, but there is a prospect that it will last for at least 30 years, and as you have heard before, there are still concerns about backlash. We will also analyze the impact it will have on Korea-Japan relations. Kim Jin-ah is with Professor of LD at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies. Professor, how are you? I had a conversation with the professor several times on the subject of the discharge of contaminated water at YTN, but today Japan pushed ahead with the discharge. First of all, 460 tons a day for 17 days, at the most until March next year, I was holding it for the first time.

◆Kim Jin-ah> If you do that, it is said that it will be about 2.3%, but the original plan is that it will be until about 2051 to release the whole. However, the official position of the IAEA, which has been monitoring the 메이저놀이터Fukushima incident so far, is that it does not yet know when it can be completed. Because this is because we don’t know when the number of days the reactor will be completely shut down is because we haven’t been inside. There must be extremely high radioactive debris there, and how to deal with it and what technology to use is still undecided because you have to go in and check again. And if it’s not closed, rainwater or groundwater still seeps in. That is why the number of pollutants is bound to continue to rise. That’s why there are such parts that you have to continuously make and discharge treated water. Now, the Japanese government is saying that the water diluted through the Alps, a multi-nuclide removal facility, is continuously discharged into an undersea tunnel that is about 1 km long. However, there is still something in this treated water that is not filtered out. The international community is concerned about the fact that tritium and carbon 14 are still included because they are not filtered out.

◇Anchor> The professor’s words, “It’s because I didn’t go inside,” sound loud today. Earlier, we informed you of the information through the screen, and I hope you listen to the professor while referring to it. As you said, it is the first time in history that contaminated water from a nuclear power plant accident has been discharged into the Pacific Ocean, non-Pacific Ocean, or any other sea.

◆Kim Jin-ah> It’s the first time I’ve had an accident and shed it like this. In fact, tritium continues to be unfiltered, so any nuclear power plant has no choice but to use water. Because you have to turn the cooling system. So, in the place where nuclear power plants are turned, this is mixed and comes out. So it is true that it is released into seawater, but in fact, this concentration itself is a problem. I don’t think this is the only thing we should focus on. Because in the case of Japan, it was said that the tritium concentration was lowered by 1500 becquerels per liter of water. But this is 10,000 becquerels according to the World Health Organization standard. That’s at a much lower level. So, it is very difficult to make this only an issue with this figure, but a fairly big problem is that the release was independently decided. And what kind of consultations should be made with the international community, but that is the part that was insufficient. Because the Japanese government also joined the London Convention in 1972 called the London Convention, according to this convention, there is such an obligation to protect the water ecosystem from contaminating it. And if something like an incident or disease continues to occur, we have such an obligation to monitor it and share information with neighboring countries. However, it is very important that such parts have not been sufficiently discussed, and why the London Convention is important is that other countries say that this is dumping of pollutants. However, Japan says that this is not a marine pollutant because it comes from buildings on the ground, whereas according to this convention, it says that it has jurisdiction over things coming from marine man-made structures. As I said before, the undersea tunnel is an artifact because of what comes out through the 1km undersea tunnel. That’s why, if we interpret it as a marine artificial structure, we can make room for continued discussion through the London Convention.
