The FNCA 2019 Workshop on Radiation Processing and Polymer Modification (RPPM) was held from 3rd to 7th September 2019, at the Royal Ambarrukmo Hotel, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The workshop was jointly organised by the National Nuclear Energy Agency (BATAN) of Indonesia and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) of Japan. Twenty four representatives involved in radiation processing and polymer modification from 10 FNCA member countries attended the workshop, namely Bangladesh, China, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Mongolia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. The program of the workshop is attached as Annex 1. The list of participants is attached in Annex 2.

[Workshop]

On opening the workshop, Dr Hendig Winarno, Mr Tomoaki Wada and Edy Giri Rachman Putra PhD gave a welcome remarks. Following the opening session, Mr Wada introduced the FNCA Achievements in 2018 and 2019, and the FNCA Secretariat briefly explained the project outlines. After the introductory sessions, 8 countries presented their progress of research and experiments on Biofertlizer. On the second day, 10 countries reported their current activities and its results on Polymer Modification. Following the progress reports, the participants were divided into seven groups and have a discussion based on their major research themes, namely "Degraded Chitosan for Animal Feeds", "Hydrogel for Medical Application", "Environmental Remediation", "Synergistic Effect of Plant Growth Promoters (PGP), Super Water Absorbents (SWA) and Biofertilizer (BF)", "PGP and SWA, Inclusive of Process Development", "PGP and SWA, Inclusive of Process Development", "Mutation Breeding of BF Microbe Using Gamma Irradiation" and "Sterilization of BF Carrier Using Gamma Irradiation". On the fifth day, each group gave a brief report on the discussion results and presented their action plans. Finally the workshop was summarized, and concluded officially by the closing remarks by Edy Giri Rachman Putra PhD and Dr Shin Okazaki. The summary of each report is attached in Annex 3.

[Technical Visit]

A technical visit was conducted on 5 September. The participants visited two villages in Kulon Progo District where BATAN is conducting field experiment of oligochitosan ("Fitosan") and biofertilizer ("IMR").

[Open Seminar]

Indonesia Nuclear Expo 2019 was held from 2nd to 7th September at Royal Ambarrukmo Yogyakarta with approximately 600 participants (514 presenters & observers, and 86 exhibitors). FNCA participants joined the symposium held on 6th October by participating in oral and poster sessions.

Session 1: Opening

Dr Hendig Winarno, FNCA Coordinator of Indonesia and Deputy Chairman of BATAN for Nuclear Technology Utilization, Mr Tomoaki Wada, FNCA Coordinator of Japan and Edy Giri Rachman Putra PhD, Acting Director of Science and Technology Accelerator, Director of Polytechnic of Nuclear Technology and NEXPO Coordinator gave opening remarks.

Session 2: Overview and Achievements of FNCA Projects

Mr Wada reported the overview and achievements of the seven FNCA projects in 2018 and 2019. He reported that the Ministerial Level Meeting 2018 encouraged the member countries to bring the R&D products of radiation processing and polymer modification to the end-users including the private sector.

Session 3: Progress Report on Biofertilizer

Eight (8) progress reports on the current activities of Biofertlizer were presented. The summary of each report is attached in Annex 3.

Ten (10) country reports were presented on the progress of current research on radiation processing and polymer modification. The summary of each report is attached in Annex 3.

Session 5: Discussion on Achievements, Obstacles and Planning

The participants were divided into seven groups based on their research themes, namely " Degraded Chitosan for Animal Feeds", "Hydrogel for Medical Application", "Environmental Remediation", " Synergistic Effect of Plant Growth Promoters (PGP), Super Water Absorbents (SWA) and Biofertilizer (BF)", "PGP and SWA, Inclusive of Process Development", "PGP and SWA, Inclusive of Process Development" and "Sterilization of BF Carrier Using Gamma Irradiation".

Session 6: Presentation on Achievements, Obstacles and Planning

Each group reported the results of discussion. The summary of each report is attached in Annex 3.

Session 7: Summary

Draft summary will be reviewed by the participants and approved by Monday 30 September.

Session 8: Closing

Edy Giri Rachman Putra PhD and Dr Shin Okazaki gave closing remarks.

Technical Visit (5th September)

The participants visited two villages in Kulon Progo District where BATAN is conducting field experiment of oligochitosan ("Fitosan") and biofertilizer ("IMR") on 5th September. In Gerbosari Village, Samigaluh Sub District, oligochitosan is applied on Chrysanthemum. The application of oligochitosan on Chrysanthemum affect the height of plant which is much taller compared to control. The flowers have not bloomed yet. The expected harvest time is one month later. Furthermore, the plant is healthier reflected by the color of leaves that look greener without any diseases compared to control that have some spots of mold on the leaves. The Chrysanthemum will be exported to Japan next year. In Gotaan Village, also in Samigaluh Sub District, oligochitosan and biofertilizer are applied on onion and chili plants. The plants treated by oligochitosan and biofertilizer have much more tuber than control. In the both fields, 100 ppm oligochitosan is foliar sprayed every two weeks.

Open Seminar (6th September)

Indonesia Nuclear Expo 2019 was held from 2nd to 7th September at Royal Ambarrukmo Yogyakarta with approximately 600 participants (514 presenters & observers, and 86 exhibitors). FNCA participants joined the symposium held on 6th October by participating in oral and poster sessions. At the beginning of the symposium, representatives from Indonesian government, local government of Yogyakarta and related agencies gave welcome remarks, respectively. From FNCA, Dr Phiriyatorn Suwanmala and Dr Takehisa Hanawa gave a presentation as an invited speakers at the parallel sessions.
