Japanese univeryitetski professor claims to have invented a powder that absorbs radiation and who believes that “will be helpful in the rehabilitation of nuclear power plant in focus.
Tomihisin anti radiation powder consists of a mixture of minerals, including a zeolite, to which said radiation collecting the water-absorbing and isotopes of cesium, iodine, and strontium.
The scientist said that the experiments held with colleagues Kumaken kougyou Co., the chemical company, showed that 1.5 grams of powder dissolved in 10 milligrams of water completely absorbs the cesium particles. The concentrate also alleged to isolate rdioaktivne particles of iodine and strontium from water.
Professor Ota will seek to use his discovery in Focus 1 to clean 67,000 tons of highly radioactive water accumulated in the lower rooms and tunnels of the station.
