Tepco, the company in charge of arranging the nuclear disaster in Fukushima in Japan, has returned to botch. New reports indicate that between 300 and 600 tons of contaminated water from the nuclear plant have gone to the Pacific Ocean over the past 2 years. Now, a new proposal to solve the problem once the plant was released, and most interesting is that it includes the use of a giant ice barrier.

Tepco's plan is to use a series of frozen at -40 ° C, thus freezing the soil at the site and act as if it were a dam, preventing more contaminated water from seeping into the ocean through the floor pipes. The problem is that this barrier of ice that can see above, it would be very useful if a new earthquake comes to affect the region, which is likely to happen within the next few years.
If we assume that the ice barrier will be effective, then the only major problem that we encounter is its construction, since it will take between 1 and 2 years before it is ready. Currently, nuclear experts from Japan and other countries of the world continue reviewing the situation very closely.
