Ministry of the environment to decide to reuse contaminated soil for road and coastal levee nationwide



On 6/7/2016, the experts study group of MOE (Ministry of the Environment) admitted to reuse the contaminated soil to public works.

The contaminated soil is from decontamination. Cesium density is supposed to be 5,000 ~ 8,000 Bq/Kg to be recycled. It will be reused for road and coastal levee all around Japan.

The government of Japan decontaminated the ground and spreads it to the entire country.

The ministry is planned to make an official announcement soon.

This March,  MOE was stating they would reduce the radiation level with the technology that they didn’t have yet. It is not clear if they developed the technology already.
