Tokyo, Japan / Chevy Chase, MD USA -- RadTech North America and RadTech Japan have agreed to a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to exchange information and expand activities in the technical and market development of ultraviolet (UV) and electron beam (EB) technology. Both organizations are non profit trade associations dedicated to the advancement of these fast growing industrial processes.

“As the growth of UV and EB accelerate worldwide, this agreement will help foster continued partnership between the U.S. and Japan to support researchers and manufacturers in the application of the technology,” says David Harbourne, RadTech President and President of Fusion UV. The agreement specifies a number of areas for cooperation which will enhance the sharing of data and information through publications and events.

“UV and EB research and industrial efforts in each country offer unique strengths,” says Tadatomi Nishikubo, President, RadTech Japan , and Dean of Faculty of Engineering, Kanagawa University . “The combined strengths of our organizations will assist important UV and EB research and implementation efforts, and help us better support the adoption of our technology by manufacturers around the world.” This initial agreement has a term of two years, renewable by mutual consent. For a copy of the agreement, please contact RadTech Japan or RadTech North America.

UV and EB are high value, rapid throughput processes offering the virtual elimination of emissions and lower energy consumption compared with traditional methods—providing manufacturers with a safe, fast and efficient pollution prevention technology. As a result, the industry continues to grow at over twice the rate of traditional processes.
