A new strontium 90 filter system has been put into operation at Fukushima Daiichi. The “portable” system consists of a set of shipping container type boxes containing the equipment.
This system was announced after the underground zeolite wall was put into production. It could be an offshoot of that technology. The handout on the system calls it a filtration and adsorption device. The strontium 90 reduction by 1000 times fits with what certain zeolites are capable of.
The system will filter water after it finishes the reverse osmosis process but before it is sent through the ALPS system.
