    Redefined 'Active Fault' Could Force Closure of World's Biggest Nuclear Plant in Japan

    Redefined 'Active Fault' Could Force Closure of World's Biggest Nuclear Plant in Japan

    JOHANNESBURG--January 30, 2013--Written by Richard Finlayson, Senior International Editor for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--Japan's Nuclear Regulation Authority is planning to redefine the meaning of 'active fault' (a crack in the earth's crust) as one that has moved anytime in the last 400,000 years. This is a major extension, as the current limit is set at 120,000 to 130,000 years. Prior to 2006, only faults that had moved in the last 50,000 years were considered active.
