» Gov soliciting candidates to learn latest technology of separating tritium from radioactive water

The government has started soliciting candidates in and outside Japan for projects to obtain the latest knowledge on the technology of separating radioactive tritium from contaminated water at Fukushima No.1 plant.

The government will pay up to 1 billion yen for one project to build a facility and conduct an experiment by using the water taken from the plant. It will accept candidates until July 17 and plans to pick one or more entities.

TEPCO is test-running a trouble-plagued system that is said to be capable of removing 62 different types of radioactive substances from the contaminated water, but not tritium.
