Innovation and excellence in nuclear analysis
In TECFIR / UNED we trust in the peaceful applications of the modern nuclear technology to improve the society. We work developing new capabilities for nuclear analysis. They are aimed at driving innovations in two key aspects of the modern society: energy and health.
According to IAE the world electricty consumption will increase more than a 70% to 2040. Today, the electricity in the world is produced in a 67% from fossil fuels. Triggered by climate change or scarcity, an energy transition will take place. Nuclear fusion is one of few alternatives to make it smoothly and planned: it is clean, safe and virtually limitless. The pay-off is an extraordinary complexity. An international effort is coordinated to build ITER, and complement it with DONES, while DEMO is designed.
Supporting the innovation in the nuclear engineering for nuclear fusion, we contribute to a better future. TECFIR is a proud participant of the international community of nuclear fusion.
Since its early stages, the nuclear physics has offered solutions to improve the people's health. Nuclear engineering has evolved strongly since Marie Curie visited injured soldiers with portable X-ray sources in the trinches of the World War I. Today the radiation is a fundamental mean to diagnose diseases.
In the recent decades the radiation is also used as therapy for multiple diseases, and more prominently, for cancer.
Supporting the innovation in the nuclear engineering for health applications, we participate in the effort to improve peolpe's quality of life.
In TECFIR the excellence in the nuclear analysis is the key for a long lasting work. Excellence is sought when developing new capabilities, and so it is when we apply them to particular applications. We run an ISO9001 Quality Managament System.
