|Event Title||2015 Annual Hands‐On Workshop in eBeam|
|Event Description|| To address the needs of the food, phytosanitary, agribusiness, and pharmaceutical industries, the NCEBR is organizing a week‐long hands‐on workshop in eBeam technologies in April 2015. This will be the sixth eBeam workshop, after the inaugural workshop in April 2010.
The National Center for Electron Beam Research (NCEBR) at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas serves as an un‐biased venue to carry out strategic electronic pasteurization and sterilization research and commercial projects using electron beam (eBeam) technologies.
The objectives of the hands-on workshop are:
- To provide attendees with an understanding of the basic principles of ionizing irradiation—focusing on eBeam technologies
- To provide hands-on training in dosimetry (alanine & radiochromic film), dose-mapping, and dose penetration, distribution, and validation with single and dual eBeam configurations.
- To provide attendees with an understanding of the equipment and other infrastructure requirements needed for this technology
- To provide attendees with unparalleled access to leading international commercial eBeam equipment and sub-system vendors and suppliers to accelerate commercialization
- To provide information needed to commercialize eBeam and technologies in the food industry for food security, food quality, phytosanitary treatment, and food safety
– To provide information to commercialize eBeam and technologies in the pharmaceutical and biomedical industries for sterilization applications and vaccine development
- To provide information to commercialize eBeam technologies in the environmental industry for wastewater remediation, industrial waste treatment, treatment of municipal sludges and water reuse
