Updated: 2016-02-04 (cnnc.com.cn)

The self-developed cobalt source project with independent intellectual property rights was put into operation in 2010, breaking the long-term monopoly of foreign countries and removing long-term dependence on import of industrial Co-60 source.

The project has won 15 patents (4 for inventions and 11 for utility models), which fills gaps in related fields, provides powerful support for the development of the radiation processing industry, and contributes to nuclear technology applications in China.
