Grégory Delécaut, head of the IRE Lab department, comments: "The CYCLADE consortium offers a solution to the unprecedented challenge of dismantling cyclotrons. It benefits from the wide range of know-how and the unique consolidated experience of a consortium of world-renowned Belgian organisations."
Jos Spilstijns, CEO of Interboring, adds: "The collaboration between the five partners creates a one-stop shop for the market looking for an integrated solution for the dismantling of cyclotrons and other particle accelerators."
"IBA's participation in the CYCLADE consortium reflects our commitment to take into account systematically the consequences for societies of our activities and the interests of all our stakeholders (patients, shareholders, employees, customers, suppliers, the community, the planet, etc.)," explains Olivier Legrain, IBA CEO. "Integrating the issue of dismantling and waste management into the very design of our accelerators is part of this approach, which is formalised in our B Corp certification."
