Fukushima Daiichi – How We Got Here and Where We’re Going

AIChE Webinar
Originally delivered Apr 12, 2011

On March 11th, 2011, the largest earthquake and associated tsunami ever recorded in Japan extensively disrupted Japanese industry and society and tragically claimed the lives of thousands. The nuclear power plant at Fukushima Daiichi was no exception and a series of events resulting from the earthquake and tsunami has led to significant damage to the reactors and releases of radioactive material. These events have been widely reported in the media.

The purpose of this webinar is to provide the AIChE membership with information on what happened and the current status at Fukushima Daiichi based on the most credible technical sources; provide comment on the potential implications for the US nuclear industry based on recent comments by the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission; and provide members with resources to allow them to follow future events at Fukushima Daiichi.

AIChE's Nuclear Engineering Division Answered Questions Related to Fukushima and Nuclear Power from this webinar and a series of Q&A posts.
