Bill Gates to Develop New Nuclear Reactor with Korea
(Chosun) - Microsoft founder Bill Gates has pledged to develop with Korea a revolutionary nuclear reactor that will leave far less radioactive waste than existing ones.

Gates, who retired from managing Microsoft in 2008, invested US$35 million to establish a nuclear-power venture company called TerraPower in 2010.

Gates met with the head of the Korean Nuclear Society, Chang Soon-heung, in Seattle on Thursday and agreed to cooperate in the development of a sodium-cooled fast reactor, the KNS said Sunday. SFRs are next-generation nuclear technology that can use spent nuclear fuel rods from conventional reactors.

Nuclear reactor decommissioning industry poised to surge with pending closures
Approximately half of the world’s nuclear reactors are expected to be closed by 2030, creating a substantial market for the commercial nuclear reactor decommissioning industry in the years to come, states a new report from business intelligence experts GlobalData.

According to the report, "Nuclear Reactor Decommissioning Industry - Global Market Size and Competitive Landscape Analysis to 2030", more than 200 nuclear reactors - accounting for about half of the world’s nuclear facilities - will be decommissioned, assuming no life extensions are granted. The plans mean a significant boost for the global nuclear decommissioning industry, with Europe accounting for the bulk of the closures.

Nuclear power industry's shady payments since Fukushima crisis
The nuclear power industry has made behind-the-scenes payments to the tune of at least 3.18 billion yen ($40 million) to six local governments hosting nuclear-power related facilities since the Fukushima disaster last year.

The funds were doled out by six nuclear power-related organizations, including electric power companies, The Asahi Shimbun learned.

Of that amount, 2.4 billion yen was not disclosed. The only conclusion to draw from this is that dubious payments to local governments have continued since the reactor meltdowns at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

The Asahi Shimbun, relying on the information disclosure law and interviews, surveyed 39 prefectures or municipalities that are hosting or plan to host nuclear power plants or facilities related to the central government’s spent nuclear fuel recycling program.

The survey, which wound up in July, excluded donations to assist victims of the March 11, 2011, Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami that spawned the nuclear crisis.

The six companies and organizations that made donations are: the Federation of Electric Power Companies of Japan (Denjiren); Japan Nuclear Fuel Ltd.; Chubu Electric Power Co.; Japan Atomic Power Co.; Chugoku Electric Power Co.; and Kyushu Electric Power Co.

The funds were given to the Aomori prefectural government; the Rokkasho village government in Aomori Prefecture; the Shizuoka prefectural government; the Tsuruga city government in Fukui Prefecture; the Matsue city government in Shimane Prefecture; and the Saga prefectural government.

In addition to these entities, some other local governments won assurances from electric power companies that funds will continue to be channeled to them in or after fiscal 2012.

Thus, the amount uncovered so far may be just the tip of the iceberg.

The money is not being invested in the infrastructure. The underground piping systems are a huge problem. Hard to inspect.. hard to fix. Tritium leaks.

Govt. expects more Fukushima nuclear waste
Japan's environment ministry says radioactive waste from last year's nuclear accident in Fukushima is likely to exceed previous estimates.

The ministry surveyed Fukushima and 8 nearby prefectures, including Tokyo, on Monday. It found they are storing a total of 42,575 tons of waste containing radioactive cesium levels of more than 8,000 becquerels per kilogram.

The figure is expected to rise as officials continue testing for radioactivity. The ministry's original estimate was about 50,000 tons.

Environment Minister Goshi Hosono indicated his wariness Tuesday about immediately ending Japan's reliance on atomic power generation, saying that expertise in the area should be maintained to deal with the decades-long work to scrap the crippled reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

"Unless we have the knowledge of how to maintain such technology (for decommissioning), we can't simply say that we will be able to abandon nuclear power generation," Hosono, who is also nuclear disaster minister, said, while stressing the need to consider the risks of relying too much on fossil fuels amid the unstable Middle East situation.

The Shin (meaning new) Wolsong 1 reactor, located some 230 miles southeast of Seoul, was shut down at 10:53 a.m. due to the malfunction of a system that controls power output, according to an official from the state-run Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power.

The panel, which is to meet once a month, will conduct a comprehensive study of why the accident occurred, based on findings made in specialized fields. It will also interview officials from the government and Tokyo Electric Power Company, the operator of the plant.

High radiation detected in fish off Fukushima
The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant says it has detected radiation 380 times the government safety limit in a fish caught off Fukushima Prefecture.

Tokyo Electric Power Company is measuring radiation exposure in fish and shellfish caught within 20 kilometers of the troubled plant from March this year.

The company caught 20 kinds of fish and shellfish at 5 locations from mid-July to early August.

The utility says it detected 38,000 becquerels per kilogram of radioactive cesium in a rock trout caught about 1 kilometer off Minamisoma City on August 1st.

The level is 380 times the government safety limit, and the highest so far in the firm's surveys in the area. The previous high was 18.8 times.

The operator also says it found radioactive cesium exceeding the safety limit in 9 kinds of fish and shellfish.
