Sterion, a part of Rusatom Healthcare, has signed a contract with Delrus to sterilize more than 58 million medical masks using radiation technology. Rusatom Healthcare is a concern of Russia's state atomic energy corporation Rosatom while, Delrus supplies sterile masks to Russian medical facilities.


Masks need to be sterilized before use because their inner lining comes in contact with users' mucous membranes.


According to Rosatom CEO Alexey Likhachev, sterilization using radiation technology ensures that medical equipment are processed safely and efficiently, which is especially important during ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.


Sterion has already processed first batch of 92,000 masks. The enterprise is now working round-the-clock, which enables it to sterilize up to 10 million marks per week.


Alexander Shibanov, CEO of Rusatom Healthcare informed that “Other Rosatom and non-Rosatom enterprises involved in the sterilization of medical devices have already been enlisted in this endeavor.”


Sterion specializes in sterilizing medical supplies using specialized equipment- Linear Electron Accelerator. Sterilization is achieved by targeting medical products loaded onto a conveyor belt with a beam of accelerated electrons. This method allows for effective and safe sterilization of medical supplies without the need to unpack them from the shipping containers.
