TEPCO said Saturday they have started dumping a mineral into the sea that absorbs radioactive substances with the goal of slowing down the contamination of the ocean. virtual city casino coupon code
TEPCO said it had begun dropping zeolite weighed down with sandbags near a water outlet from the Fukushima Daiichi plant.
The mineral is used in industrial applications which include nuclear waste processing.
Officials hope it will help to reduce the spread of radioactive materials from the plant into the Pacific ocean, though the effectiveness of the measure was not yet clear.
The mineral has been used in past nuclear accidents, including the 1979 Three Mile Island nuclear accident in the United States.
