Japan will allocate 220 billion yen ($2.87 billion) to clean up in areas contaminated by radiation spewed from Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s crippled Fukushima Dai- Ichi nuclear plant, Kyodo News reported.
Ash from 16 garbage incinerating facilities out of 22 places in Fukushima was found to contain levels exceeding the standard set by the environment ministry, the Asahi newspaper reported today.
Abukuma Clean Center found 95,300 becquerels per kilogram of cesium, the newspaper said.
The government set targets yesterday for reducing radiation near the Fukushima plant, including cutting the exposure for children by 60 percent within two years.
The central government will decontaminate areas where radiation exceeds 20 millisieverts a year, while local authorities will clear less toxic areas, it said.
