Eurotech is completing a technology transfer that will allow it to produce EKOR, a new material for the containment of nuclear waste, in the USA. There are 11 DOE sites in the USA where the total cost of containment is estimated at more than $1 billion.

In August, the Ukraine government certified EKOR for commercial application at Chernobyl and tests, funded by international agencies, are now underway to determine the safest way to apply the material in this highly toxic environment.

Eurotech is exploring other opportunities for EKOR, including direct product sales and licensing, in other countries.
