The E-Beam facility is a take off from the Cobalt-60, which is used to sterilize hospital equipment and decontaminate food grade products among others.

With the facility, DOST-PNRI can perform further research and development in improving various industrial applications such as polymer grafting and performance improvement of industrial tools and equipment.
