Nano Technology and Graphene Research Centre

BATAN (National Nuclear Energy agency of Indonesia) Visit to Print-G

BATAN representatives visited Printg on 9th -10th August 2018, at DRPMI, Unpad and Print-G. BATAN is a government institute which focuses on research, development and empowerment of nuclear science and technology. The role and vision of BATAN for 2015-2019 is “Acceleration of Welfare Leading to the Nation’s Self Reliance”. One of its mission is to develop nuclear science and technology which is reliable, sustainable and beneficial to the people and also stressing on the safety and security.

In this visit, which is accompanied by nearly 16 representatives from BATAN were received directly by The Director of Print-G, Prof. Made. The meeting began by introducing each other, and presenting each other's research activities carried out in their respective labs. This discussion would lead to a better perspective about the individuals work as well as know about assorted field of studies. The interest of both parties to cooperate in the use of technology and development that could be done by collaboration. This kind of collaboration between Print-G and the National Institute will kindle further directions and improvement of novel strategies in research.  

On the second day of visit the representatives from BATAN visited Print-G laboratory. They had a look into the different equipment’s used in the centre for the synthesis and dispersion of nanoparticles for wide range of applications. Different technologies developed in Print-G for instance, the purification and enhancing the crystallinity of graphite from its mineral and development of fine bubble technology for wastewater treatment and for improving the growth of fish. On the occasion, BATAN representatives was much attracted towards graphite. Since, graphite can be used as a cooling material in nuclear power reactors which would be beneficial for their work. Apart from that, BATAN is also interested in bubble technology developed in Print-G. BATAN is also investigating the use of bubble technology to cool the reactors in nuclear power plants.
