“Ion specific media”, the material developed by Kurion for the cleanup, which mainly soaks up nuclear particles and then shipped the waste to a contaminated site resulting in the waste can be safely shipped somewhere for storage. The project cost up Japan tens of billions of dollars, and may take years to clean up the whole.
