Iran Unveils New Achievements on National Nuclear Day

In a ceremony attended by President Hassan Rouhani in Tehran on Sunday, Iran marked the National Nuclear Technology Day by unveiling a series of new achievements.

It is the 11th year Iran is celebrating a national day to mark its achievements in the nuclear industry.

President Rouhani and Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi made speeches at the ceremony.

This year, the AEOI celebrated five new achievements by the country’s scientists.

During the ceremony, President Rouhani unveiled three projects via video conference calls, including the first phase of an industrial radiation center using Rhodotron accelerator in the city of Qazvin, a center in the province of Alborz for production of nuclear medicine using PET (positron emission tomography) method focusing on the production of radio medicine with fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG), and Iran’s first factory for upgrading uranium ore in Yazd.

Two other homegrown products were also unveiled at the ceremony, including a condensate pump used in Iran’s Bushehr nuclear power plant, and a stone centrifuge device.

In recent years, Iranian scientists have made remarkable progress in the field of peaceful nuclear technology despite the sanctions imposed by the West.
