福島第一原子力発電所事故により大量の放射性物質が環境に放出され、近隣の市街地や森林等が汚染された。家屋や学校等の周辺の除染は国および地方自治体により進められているが、住環境にある壁や床、窓等については公的な除染が行われていない。本試験では、容易に実施できる作業により効果的に汚染を低減する手法を整備するため、住環境にある様々な部材に対し拭き取り等の試験を行った。試験を実施した部材は繊維類、木材類、ガラス類、コンクリート類、プラスチック類、塩化ビニル類、金属類、その他である。各部材は旧警戒区域(現在の帰還困難区域)内の実家屋から採取しており、事故により放出された放射性物質で汚染されたものである。これらの部材に対して乾式の手法(吸引、拭き取り、吸着、剥離)、湿式の手法(拭き取り、ブラッシング、表面研磨、洗濯)、および物理的な手法(剥離)を適用することで、簡易で効果的な汚染低減手法を検討した。試験の結果、一般的に水の浸透性が低い部材(ガラス、コンクリート、プラスチック、塩化ビニル、および金属)については湿式の手法(拭き取り、表面研磨、またはブラッシング)を用いることで高い汚染低減率が得られることがわかった(90%程度)。一方で水の浸透性がある木材の場合は剥離用塗料が比較的効果的(汚染低減率60%-70%程度)であった。このほか補足的データとして、洗剤の性質による汚染低減率の違い、および剥離用塗料の擦り込みの効果についても検討を行った。最後に、これらの結果を踏まえ最適であると考えられる手法をまとめた。

Large quantities of radioactive materials were released into the environment as a result of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station accident. Residential areas and forest areas near the power station were contaminated with the radioactive materials. Outside of the houses, schools and the other buildings are being decontaminated by national authority and local government. On the other hand, the materials (such as walls, floors, or windows) which constitute the houses are not decontaminated officially. In order to prepare decontamination methods that can be applied easily, we conducted examinations of decontamination for various materials in houses. Fibrous materials, woods, glasses, concretes, plastics, vinyl chloride materials, metals and synthetic leathers were used in our examinations. These materials were collected from houses in difficult-to-return zone, and were contaminated by radioactive materials released by the accident. Dry methods (suction, wiping, adsorption and peelable coating), wet methods (wiping, brushing, polishing and washing) and physical method (peeling of materials) were used for decontamination. As a result of our examinations, materials with low water permeability, such as glasses, concretes, vinyl chloride materials and metals, were able to be decontaminated efficiently (about 90% reduction) by using wet methods. Materials with high water permeability like woods were relatively well decontaminated by peelable coating (about 60%-70% reduction). In addition to the examination described above, the difference of contamination reduction effect between chemical properties of detergents and the effect of rubbing of peelable coating were also examined. Finally, the most effective method was summarized based on these examinations.
