A recent article in the ISCO Newsletter outlines Japan's continuing efforts in trying to come up with its own form of nuclear contamination abatement. The governing bodies are confident that power washing will remove enough of the contamination but are deeply concerned about the effects that the run-off will have on the water supplies, and with good reason.

Power Plus comments - Sadly, what they prescribe to do is simply power wash all buildings and surfaces to content with the growing concern of radiation among their citizens.
The governing bodies are confident that it will remove enough of the contamination but are deeply concerned about the effects that the runoff will have on the water supplies, and with good reason.
Power washing along has proven to be only good up to 19% removal of contaminates and even less using improper pressures and heat levels. Not to mention that any of the surface contaminants that are removed will flow into their drains and either out to sea or to their own water supplies thereby continuing the spread of radiation and actuality radiating their own food.
PowerPlus has warned the government of Japan before. And still they choose to go by their own ideals. Unfortunately, there is not much we can do as a company to prevent them except to inform not only them but continue to educate the world on our methods and abilities to decontaminate any radiated surface.
Along with earlier attempts to simply burn the contaminated materials in hopes of reducing or eliminating the radiation, has only proven to spread the contaminants even further and begin to effect more people.
As more and more is known about radiation long term effects in not only older people who have now spent years around a site that was quickly sealed but whose costly effects can still be felt to this day, but on the children of those people who have been born at alarming rates with not mild defects but rather what could be considered large mutations. The people near Chernobyl had al relatively small dose compared to what Japan has experience and Chernobyl had the entire site sealed relatively quickly. Japan seems to only want to do things their own way and at their own pace. Unfortunately, for the people of Japan, that means only longer and longer exposures to the harmful radiation rays that now engulf a large portion of Japan.
Still, there is hope for their country and PowerPlus still continues to make progress in talks with Japan. A fully funded demonstration has been scheduled for late February and it is hoped that they will be bringing those officials who can finally agree to begin the real decontamination process.To read the ISCO Newsletter containing the referenced article, please click on the link below:
