A panel of experts under the Nuclear Regulation Authority has conditionally approved the trial of a new device to remove radioactive substances from tainted water at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear complex.

The advanced liquid processing system trial will fully begin in March at the earliest if the nuclear watchdog gives the go-ahead.

At a meeting Thursday, the panel members approved the trial operation of ALPS on condition that No. 1 plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. conducts several tests to check the strength of containers used to store radioactive materials removed from the contaminated water.
