JNFL to start the first Japanese commercial reprocessing plant

March 29, JNFL signed with the Governor Mimura and Rokkasho-mura Village Mayor Furukawa on the environemntal protection agreement. The signing ceremony was held at a hotel in the capital Aomori city on Wednesday. Combined with the approval by the central government's nuclear safety regulator NISA, this agreement allows JNFL to start testing to reprocess real spent fuels. The first shredding process of a real PWR fuel will start on Friday.

Local newspaper To-O-Nippo provides video image from a helicopteur on the web. You can see Rokkasho wind farm turbines, Mutsu-Ogawara strategic oil stockpile tanks, and the Rokkasho reprocessing plant.
