Fukushima.  A million tons of radioactive water would end up in the ocean.  The International Atomic Energy Agency approved the plan

Japan said it would start releasing more than 1 million tons of radioactive water from the earthquake- and tsunami-ravaged Fukushima nuclear power plant on Thursday. And it is this implementation of the plan that has drawn particularly strong criticism from China.

The plan, approved by the Japanese government two years ago as a major step to decommissioning the plant, is also opposed by local fishing groups. They are afraid of losing their earning potential.

Japan insists that the water release is safe. The International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN’s nuclear watchdog, also approved the plan in July, saying it met international standards and had “minimal” impact on people and the environment.

Beijing criticizes

Japan says the water will be filtered to remove most radioactive elements except for tritium, an isotope of hydrogen that is difficult to separate from water. Japanese authorities said the treated water would be diluted to a level well below international tritium levels before being released into the Pacific.

The water was originally used to cool fuel rods at Fukushima Daiichi after it melted in the disaster caused by the massive tsunami that hit Japan’s east coast in 2011.
