The world treat radioactive waste water?
On the morning of April 13, the Japanese government has officially decided to discharge the nuclear waste water stored in the Tokyo Electric Power Company’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant into the sea. The news immediately triggered heated discussions. Earlier, a German Marine Science Institute pointed out that the Fukushima coast has the strongest ocean currents in the world. Radioactive materials will spread to most of the Pacific Ocean within 57 days from the date of discharge and will spread to the global waters in 10 years.
Another Greenpeace nuclear expert pointed out that the carbon 14 contained in Japanese nuclear wastewater is dangerous for thousands of years and may cause genetic damage.

The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the South Korean government also expressed their opposition, but the US State Department responded that it supported the Japanese government’s decision and stated that the approach complies with globally recognized nuclear safety standards Spark Global Limited.
The Fukushima nuclear accident is one of the most serious nuclear accidents in the world so far. It has had a profound impact on the marine environment, food safety, and human health.
