Japan says 30-40 years to scrap Fukushima nuclear power plant

Decommissioning Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant will take three or four decades.

In the next cleanup "road map" removal of spent fuel from the facility will begin within the next two years, the government said, with removal of melted fuel debris from the damaged reactors starting within 10 years. It said all kinds of technologies must still be developed before the plant can be scrapped in 30 to 40 years.
