- Edano, Minister of Economy, “Nuclear Spent fuel should be stocked in Tokyo and other big city areas” (Fukushima Diary, Oct 23, 2012):
The entire spent fuel pools in Japan will be completely full within 6 years from now. (cf. Rokkasho reprocessing plant, “If JP Gov abandons fuel reprocessing, we’ll send back spent fuel”)
In his latest book, Edano, Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry commentes like this below
It’s rational for big cities such as Tokyo to accept nuclear spent fuel (in dry cask storage) because they have been having the benefit from nuclear power.
