NTP and Necsa at the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit
NTP and Necsa - represented by NTP’s GMD, Mrs Tina Eboka and Necsa’s CEO, Mr Phumzile Tshelane – have been privileged to be part of the South African delegation to the Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) hosted by President Obama in Washington, DC. This is the fourth and final series of Summits that have brought together leaders from 50+ countries and four international organisations to highlight accomplishments and make new commitments towards reducing threats of nuclear terrorism. Another part of the NSS process is minimising the civilian use of highly-enriched uranium, which can be used to make nuclear weapons.
South Africa remains at the forefront of effecting these changes by:
- Signing the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and becoming the first country and only nation to voluntarily declare and dismantle its nuclear weapons; and
- NTP becoming the first company to produce the first large scale commercial FDA approved batch of Low-Enriched Uranium (LEU) Mo-99 for patient use.
NTP’s CG&SR Department is also hosting our exhibition to showcase NTP and Necsa’s capabilities and technological innovation to the rest of the world.
