At SHINE Technologies, we believe in bettering our local and global communities through the advancement of nuclear fusion technology. Our long-term mission is a four-phase pathway to develop an affordable and sustainable solution for fusion energy. The four phases in our pathway to commercialize fusion-based energy production and enable global clean energy production begin with pursuing multiple existing commercial opportunities enabled by our beam-target fusion devices.

1. Inspect Industrial Components

Our applications of our fusion technology began in the field of materials testing, especially nondestructive testing. By creating a high-yield neutron generator driven by a compact particle accelerator, SHINE has developed a replacement for fission reactor neutron sources that provides the highest quality of nondestructive testing methods such as neutron radiography.

2. Produce Medical Isotopes

Because our neutron generators produce a neutron yield previously only achievable in fission reactors, they can be used to produce Mo-99 through the process of small-scale nuclear transmutation, or the conversion of one element into another element. Using SHINE’s proprietary fusion technology, we believe this process will provide a sustainable and cost-effective option for radioisotope production.

3. Recycle Nuclear Waste

As SHINE continues to advance its technology and develop fusion systems with higher neutron yields, we will set our sights on large-scale nuclear transmutation to recycle nuclear waste.

4. Generate Fusion Power

Through SHINE’s incremental exploration of near-term fusion applications, we will be well-positioned to take advantage of future developments in superconductors, confinement techniques, and reactor designs to reach the reactor efficiency needed for fusion power.
