” Two days before, Nuclear Damage Compensation and Decommissioning Facilitation Corporation released the new plan on Fukushima plant decommissioning. In this new plan, building a stone coffin to cover the reactor buildings like Chernobyl nuclear power plant was mentioned.
Uchibori, the governor of Fukushima prefecture officially objected to the government of Japan and demanded to remove nuclear fuel debris and dispose it outside of Fukushima plant instead of sarcophagus.
The governor commented building a sacrophagus in Fukushima is “unacceptable”. Fukushima prefecture would have to give up returning the residents and it would also affect the harmful rumor.
Takagi, Senior Vice-Minister of METI and Nuclear Damage Compensation and Decommissioning Facilitation Corporation apologized and stated they have never considered sarcophagus and will try to complete the removal of all nuclear fuel debris in Fukushima plant. ”
