Fukushima International Research and Industry Development Project (Innovation Coast Project)

Our aim ̶ the Rebirth of Hamadori, in the Global Spotlight

The Fukushima International Research and Industry Development Project (Innovation Coast Project) put together in June 2014 has as its aim the revitalization of the Hamadori region of Fukushima, and we are establishing a brand new research industry location including decommissioning research, robot research, and verification location to match the timing of the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics in 2020, to create new technologies and industries that are the envy of the world. Using innovation, we hope to rebuild our industrial base, and in addition to assisting with returning evacuees to their homes, we will participate in new communities with the hope of making the rebirth of an appealing, vibrant society a reality.

Behind the innovation & cost structure

1. International research and development location for nuclear decommissioning (radioactive materials analysis and research facilities)

  • Core facilities for decommissioning research, situated near the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant
  • Carries out analysis into highly radioactive materials (fuel debris, etc.), and research bringing together researchers from around the world.

2. Robot development and verification location (future development)

  1. Mockup test facilities (interior robots)
    • Testing facilities for robots designed to be used inside, in decommissioning work. Under construction in Naraha (Start of operation in 2015)
    • This provides joint facilities for research and development by business and academia
  2. Fukushima robot testing field (exterior robots)
    • Public/private research and verification facilities for disaster response robots for use on air, land, and sea
    • Assistance in research and development for disaster response robots
    • Specially designated area with relaxed controls on the Radio Law and Aviation Laws for smoother research and verification
  3. World Robot Summit

3. International venue for industry-academia cooperation

  • Brings together atomic energy-related laboratories from around Japan
  • Promotes education and research into decommissioning, wastewater treatment, environmental restoration, agriculture forestry, and fisheries, and medicine only available in this location
  • Provides an industry-academia cooperation framework, promoting the creation of venture businesses
  • Provides training to nuclear engineers from overseas as well
  • Location at which to pass on lessons and knowledge in nuclear disaster response methods, and from which to disseminate this around the world (archive location)

4. Accumulating new industries

  1. Smart eco-parks
    • These put in place locations at which to recycle the vast quantities of waste resulting from a disaster, and to extract the precious metals from this waste. Generate local employment.
  2. Concentrating energy-related industries
    • Bring together industries in the fields of high-efficiency coal-fired thermal power, LNG, and offshore wind power
    • Research and development centered around AIST, and large-scale introduction of renewable energy in evacuated areas
  3. Primary industries project
    • Enhancement of smart agriculture, biomass, CLT, and aquatic research facilities

5. Enhanced infrastructure

  1. Traffic infrastructure
    • Joban Expressway fully reopened, JR Joban Line reopened quickly, Fukushima restoration and recovery roads in place
  2. Industry and lifestyle infrastructure
    • Systematic setup of industrial land, production and distribution facilities, and offices in the Hamadori region. Futaba JHS/SHS (Opened 2015)

Accumulating new industries

Smart eco-parks

Throughout the Hamadori region, advanced recycling businesses, as well as recycling businesses that use locally produced waste as raw materials including waste from promising new technologies such as solar panels and lithium-ion batteries will play an important part. In the future, our aim will be to achieve a recycling-oriented society, and so we are promoting the creation of new businesses in order to make environmental and recycling businesses important to our futures.

Businesses initiatives under consideration

  • Carbon fiber recycling business
  • Solar panels & battery raw material recycling business
  • Coal ash mixed materials manufacturing business
  • Small home appliances recycling
  • Utilization of local energy
    (Creation of a recycling-oriented society through the utilization of woody biomass and other regional resources, and the creation of smart communities using supplied heat and power together with renewable energy and battery storage.)

Energy-related Industry Accumulation

Hamadori is home to several large-scale energy-related projects̶these include an LNG (Liquid Natural Gas) depot in Soma Harbor; high-efficiency coal-fired power generation (IGCC) in the Hirono and Nakoso Thermal Power Plants; and offshore wind turbines. We are gathering related industries based around these projects.

Three pillars, 10 projects

  • Accelerating recovery by "creating new energy" not dependent on nuclear power
    1. Evacuated area/renewable energy restoration assistance project
    2. Wind power generation center development project (land/offshore)
    3. High-efficiency coal-fired thermal power generation (IGCC) project
    4. Natural gas (LNG) thermal power generation project
  • Local consumption of locally produced energy
    1. Natural gas (LNG) regional usage promotion project
    2. Smart community development project to revive communities
    3. Energy storage and efficient usage project using hydrogen
    4. Biomass project (methane fermentation, algae)
    5. Small-scale hydro power introduction and expansion project
  • Create stable employment through not only providing energy, but also "concentrating related companies"
    1. Concentrating industries that make use of Hamadori's potential
      (concentrating industries using heat and cold, wind power generation, and battery-related industries around the LNG receiving terminals)

Primary Industries Project

The primary industries project incorporates robot technologies, environmental control systems, and other advanced technologies, and aims to be the new frontier of primary industries in Japan. By putting these advanced primary industry technologies into practice throughout Japan, this should help in the restoration and rebirth of Japan's primary industries. This also promotes the participation of new businesses, and aims to revive primary industry in the Hamadori region.
