Reactor ETRR-2 de Egipto
The ETRR-2 reactor, built by INVAP for the Atomic Energy Authority of Egypt (AEA), is located at Inshas, 60 km northwest form Cairo, Egypt. It is a multipurpose reactor, intended for radioisotope production, and is used for research activities in the fields of neutron physics, materials science, nuclear fuel and boron neutron capture therapy.
Its predecessor, the ETRR-1 reactor, of soviet manufacture, started to operate in 1961. The ETRR-2, with its varied installations, laboratories and peripheral systems is a key tool for the continuous education and training of scientists and engineers. Furthermore, it allows Egypt to supply its domestic market with medical materials.
