Japan to use non-existent American technology to remediate contaminated hazmat suits at Fukushima Daiichi via Enformable Nuclear News

At Fukushima Daiichi, contaminated gear and suits used by workers in and around the nuclear disaster site have been piling up for over a year, as no traditional method of incineration or disposal can prevent the release of radioactive materials on the suits into the environment.

Vision Plasma Systems, based in Reno, Nevada, announced an agreement with the Japanese company Cell Runner Inc., to sell two of its Arc Master I Units, at a cost of $5.8 million per unit, to use for disposal of workers hazmat suits at the Fukushima Daiichi plant.  Cell Runner of Japan is an intermediary technology provider to many commercial businesses and government agencies.

The Vision Plasma website says that the initial units can be deployed on site to be used to remediate over 5000 rubberized contaminated suits used daily by cleanup crews working in the Facility.   Additionally, the system is also said to be entirely self-powering, creating its own energy from the waste that it processes, and creating 120-240 kW of usable electricity.  The plasma gasification process creates an ultra high temperature environment that physically breaks complex chemical compounds into single elements so that complex dioxins cannot form or re-form.
