CGN’s technology that treats industrial wastewater with electron beams received wide attention at the expo. The self-developed high-frequency high-voltage electron accelerator provides an energy-saving, efficient, environmentally friendly, and safe solution to wastewater treatment in the printing and dyeing, papermaking, chemical engineering, as well as pharmaceutical industries. It can also be used in industrial parks, as well as for the non-hazardous treatment of special hazardous waste, such as medical waste and antibiotics residue.

With the maturation of the technology, it can also be used in the elimination of inorganic heavy metal ions from wastewater, solid sludge, industrial waste gas, environmental emergency response, as well as medical sewage and residue treatment.

Prasert Sinsukprasert, Inspector-General of the Thai Ministry of Energy, noted during his speech at the SETA 2019 opening ceremony that CGN has made significant breakthroughs in the manufacturing and application of electron accelerators, adding that the use of electron accelerators in industrial wastewater treatment has reached an internationally advanced level. It is hoped that the technology can be promoted in Thailand and Southeast Asia to assist in industrial waste water treatment through the joint efforts of Chinese and Thai enterprises.

Xiao Feng, general manager of CGN Dasheng Electron Accelerator Technology Co Ltd, Chomduen Satawut, general manager of Thai Nondestructive Testing Public Co Ltd (TNDT), and Thanat Sangarasri, general manager of Advanced Sterilization (Eastern) Co Ltd (ASE), signed a memorandum of understanding on the technical cooperation of electron beams, as well as sales orders for the electron accelerator.

According to the agreement, the three enterprises will jointly promote the construction of an electron accelerator application research center in Thailand, tapping into the application of nuclear technology in industrial wastewater treatment, antibiotic residue treatment, irradiation preservation of agricultural products, disinfection and sterilization, as well as material modification.

In addition, they will also promote innovation and development of electron beam technology to land more projects in Southeast Asia and countries along the Belt and Road, relying on their advantages in resources, talents, and market reach.

Hu Dongming, general manager of CGN Nuclear Technology Development Co Ltd, said that the cooperation serves as significant scientific research support for the company’s “Going Global” strategy under the Belt & Road Initiative. It will also help Thailand improve its accelerator technology, and boost the construction of its Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC).

Also spotlighted at the expo were CGN’s five innovative products in nuclear instrumentation: its nuclide identification instrument, its Raman spectrometer, its alpha beta surface contamination measuring instrument, its personal watch-styled dosimeter, and its wall-mounted alpha beta hand contamination measuring instrument.
