» TEPCO resumed operation of problematic water treatment system

TEPCO resumed operation of the complex’s radioactive water treatment system that has been plagued by a string of problems.

But the multinuclide removal facility, called the advanced liquid processing system, or ALPS, is still at the test stage as its three treatment lines have been suspended intermittently due to filter gasket corrosion caused by radiation and other problems.

It is unclear when the test run will end so that full-fledged operation can begin.
