This publication contains reports on the most recent developments in the implementation of radiation technology. Recent R&D trends are also discussed. The reports were prepared by leading international experts in the field. Technical solutions concerning electron accelerators (low, medium and high energy) are reviewed, while newly developed e/X high power units open new possibilities for bulk material processing. All the classical fields of radiation technology applications such as sterilization, food irradiation, polymer processing and rubber processing play an important economic role. Examples based on the two biggest market economies, the USA and Japan, are presented. Breakthroughs in environmental applications of radiation technology opening new horizons in process applications and solutions applied to flue gas treatment and wastewater treatment are reported. In the field of R&D the most promising fields are natural polymers and nanotechnology. This book will be of interest to scientists, engineers, managers and students working in the field of radiation processing.
