Annual Report-2016

  • Print

The Institute of Nuclear Energy Research (INER), established in 1968, is the sole government agency dedicated to research and development (R&D) on nuclear energy. Through transitions, INER has exploited the study of nuclear medicine and high-leveled medical instruments. In addition, based on the solid research foundation and systematic integration ability oriented from the field of nuclear energy and radiation application, INER broadens itself to green energy related technologies and energy economic strategies. Now, INER is prominent in energy and nuclear medicine R&Ds, with impressive research achievements and many awards honored domestically and internationally.

Since 2002, we have devoted ourselves to the R&D works of new and renewable energy technologies. Years of hard work has yielded fruitful achievements in the fields of solar photovoltaics, wind power, biomass, smart grid and energy conservation. Currently, we are actively promoting these R&D achievements to industrial applications. In March and July 2016, Metal-supported SOFC Unit Produciton Technology and SOFC Stacks Technology, developed by INER, were respectively transferred to domestic enterprises in Taiwan, helping the industry in building up the integration capacity of producing SOFC units into stacks. The aims of transference are to form the industry chain further and to build business relationships worldwide. Moreover, in November 2016, Bio-refinery process technology, developed by INER, was transferred to a domestic enterprise, which was planning to construct a cellulosic alcohol full process plant in Chianan Plain with our collaboration. The plant was expected to utilize Pennisetum as its ingredient, and to yield three tons of xylooligosaccharide and 3000 litres of high concentration alcohol per day. By this model, the program is going to make Taiwan the demonstration area in Asia-Pacific for bio-energy technology, and to enhance localization of bio-energy related start-ups.
