On 3rd April, French local time, during the 19th International Radiation Processing Conference (IMRP) held in Strasbourg, CGN Nuclear Technology Development Co., Ltd. (Stock abbreviation: CGNNT; stock code: 000881.SZ), a wholly-owned subsidiary of CGN Dasheng Electron Accelerator Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "CGN DASHENG") signed a memorandum of understanding with AERIAL Company of France. The two sides reached consensus on nuclear technology application cooperation such as fruit preservation, food irradiation and dose detection, will jointly promote the innovative development of electron beam technology in agriculture and the landing of related projects in China. In the witness of Paul Wynne, President of the International Irradiation Association (IIA) and Mr Hu Dongming, General Manager of CGNNT, Mr Kenneth Hsiao, General Manager of CGN Dasheng and Alain Strasser, General Manager of AERIAL Company signed the memorandum on behalf of both sides.
CGNNT is the first listed nuclear technology application enterprise in China. It has a high-end industrial chain of nuclear technology application with electron accelerator technologies. AERIAL Company is a technical resource center with more than 30 years of experience in innovation and application of irradiation processing technology, which is authorized food irradiation centre of IAEA, and also is a formulator of several EU food irradiation standards. The cooperation between the two parties will promote the rapid landing of CGN technology projects in poverty alleviation and fruit preservation by science and technology. Help to open up a larger space for the Chinese market and the international third-party market. Also inject new impetus for the development of nuclear technology research and industrialization promotion.
At the 19th IMRP, CGNNT demonstrated the latest electronic accelerator devices, the industrialization, promotion of the accelerator in the fields of polymer modification, disinfection, sterilization, industrial wastewater treatment, innocuous treatment of antibiotic residues and preservation of agricultural products etc. As the only Chinese director of IIA, Mr Kenneth Hsiao delivered a keynote speech of Irradiation Landscape in Asia during the conference. He gave a comprehensive introduction to the innovative technological capabilities, development status and application prospects of nuclear technology application industries in Asian countries such as China, Japan, Korea and India. He also focused on promoting the latest scientific research achievements and industrialization in the field of nuclear technology with electron beam technologies.
This year is the 55th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and France. As the main force of nuclear energy cooperation between China and France, CGN and France have cooperated to build the first million-kilowatt nuclear power plant in the mainland of China, Daya Bay Nuclear Power Station. Jointly built "EPR Global First Reactor" - Taishan Nuclear Power Station Unit 1, and now are working together to build the three major nuclear power plants in the United Kingdom. Electricity projects can be regarded as a model of mutual benefit and win-win between China and France. Mr Hu Dongming said that as a member enterprise of CGN, CGNNT will comprehensively strengthen scientific research, technology, market and project application cooperation with French enterprises in the field of nuclear technology application. On the basis of good cooperation between China and France, have deepen mutual trust, complement each other's advantages and work hands in hands to make positive contributions.
"In recent years, CGNNT has devoted itself to the application research and industrialization exploration of EB industry accelerators and agriculture. It has continuously accelerated the transformation of scientific research achievements and the process of high-quality development." Mr Hu Dongming said. As the "First listed company of nuclear technology application" of China and the leading enterprises in nuclear technology, CGNNT is responsible for making Chinese nuclear technology application industry better and stronger. It should adhere to the combination of "Going out" and "Bringing in", and actively respond to the "the Belt and Road". Also further deepening and expanding cooperation with international advanced enterprises, and vigorously laying the layout of the international market. It is committed towards a better, healthier and more beautiful human life by means of nuclear technology.
The IMRP began in 1976 and has a history of more than 40 years. It is held every 30 months. Up to now, it has been successfully held 18 sessions and is one of the most important communication platforms in the field of international radiation processing. During the conference, more than 500 professionals from 45 countries and districts around the world exchanged their experiences on innovation and development of irradiation processing technology.
