NEA focuses on medical isotope supply chain
Medical radioisotopes such as molybdenum-99 (Mo-99) are supplied by an aging nuclear infrastructure that threatens their security and availability, according to the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA). In opening statements at a recent International Workshop on Medical Radioisotopes Supply held in Paris, which drew more than 200 international experts, NEA Director-General William Magwood cautioned that action is needed to avoid another isotope supply crisis like the one experienced in 2009-2010.“I was at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission at the time and visited hospitals and talked to doctors who told me that the situation was...

China touts nuclear medicine isotope supply
China reported it has produced kilogram-level amounts of molybdenum-100 (Mo-100) for the first time.The China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) said the achievement was made possible by technology breakthroughs involving isotope separation at one of its research reactors by a scientific research team with nearly 30 years of continuous research and development experience.“China has reached the world’s leading level in the field of high-abundance stable isotope research, making it one of the few countries that can obtain molybdenum isotopes in bulk,” the CNNC said in a statement.Prior to the achievement, the country ...

TRIGA reactor fuel supply restored in the U.S
Pennsylvania State University has received the first TRIGA nuclear research reactor fuel delivery in the U.S. in a decade, according to reports.The supply of 30 uranium zirconium hydride fuel elements was produced at a recently renovated facility in France by nuclear energy company Framatome and purchased by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for $8.3 million.“These new fuel elements will enable us to run the reactor for longer [periods of time] to support studies conducted by Penn State faculty, students, and collaborators,” said Kenan Ünlü, director of the university’s Radiation Science and Engineering Center, i...

NorthStar to end production of Mo-99
NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes will shut down its molybdenum-99 (Mo-99) production facilities in Beloit, WI, by the end of 2023, citing increasing costs and competition, the company reported. According to a statement, NorthStar is currently reaching out to all active customers and suppliers to mitigate any disruptions in the supply chain.“With a global market environment dominated by foreign-government subsidized competitors and new entrants in the wings, and given steadily increasing costs for raw materials, reactor irradiation, and processing, we have concluded that the Mo-99 program is no longer sustainable,” Nor...
