Darlington plant in Ontario Canada to produce isotope

Post by CielOnTap » Wed Jun 20, 2018 4:54 pm

There is talk of an Ontario nuclear plant that would have two of its four reactors modified to allow production of medical isotope, technetium-99.
Once the plant is able to create the isotopes, it will mean a return of Canadian production of the medical imaging isotope after the 2016 closure
of the Chalk River ON nuclear plant.
