IONIZING RADIATION TECHNOLOGY FOR GRAIN IRRADIATION
Irradiation by electron accelerators uses high energy of electrons and X-rays to eliminate pathogens, bacteria, insects/pests.
Working principle of electron accelerator: Electron accelerator generates and accelerators electron to the speed of light. These electrons penetrate the product, and induce breaks in the DNA of pathogens.
Grain irradiation ensures full elimination of pests, and can successfully replace fumigation. This type of treatment is effective in difficult contamination cases of grain with insects, as well as fungi, bacteria, viruses, moulds that appear due to unfavourable climatic conditions.
