NRG joins forces with university to overcome shortages in radioisotopes

15 oktober 2019

The operators of research reactors in Canada and the Netherlands are collaborating to provide the radioisotope radioiodine (I-125), which is used for the treatment of various types of cancers.

In a joint statement McMaster University and the Nuclear Research and Consultancy Group (NRG) said the collaboration is unique and discussions were escalated by a recent global shortage of the life-saving treatment.

McMaster University, in Ontario, has a 5-MW (thermal) pool-type reactor that has been operating since 1959. NRG operates the 45-MW (thermal) high-flux research reactor at Petten.
