Electron Beam Applications (Phase 1, 2013-2015)

  • Project Title:
  • Electron Beam Applications(Phase 1, 2013-2015) for Value Addition to Food and Industrial Products and Degradation of Environmental Pollutants in the Asia Pacific region
  • Objectives
  • The objective of this project is to enhance the level of technology, knowledge and the capability of human resources in the Asia-Pacific region in the application of electron beams in dealing with agricultural and industrial products and environmental pollutants, and to set up practical measures and establish expert networks. In particular, the project will contribute to; 1) the immediate application of electron beams for sterilization and improvement of agricultural products; 2) the immediate application of electron beams for processing of industrial products such as hardening of electric cables and enhancing the durability of automobile tyres; 3) the immediate application of electron beams for treatment of environmental pollutants discharged from various industries, power plants and urban living before their release into the environment, impacting on the quality of air and water of the environment and living conditions; 4) cost-savings on environmental conservation services and cost-effective value addition of electron beam processed agricultural and industrial products in the region; 5) the dissemination of basic science and technology on the application of electron beams and the expansion of the use of electron beam devices and facilities; 6) the creation of opportunities to apply electron beams in other areas.
