Particle accelerators have a wide range of applications, some of which are fairly high profile, such as the LHC and radiotherapy, while others are more discrete, such as security scanners, polymer production and even semiconductor doping. In a world that is growing increasingly concerned with climate change and environmental sustainability, accelerators offer a huge potential to developing green technology, from the treatment of sewage and wastewater, all the way up to changing industrial practices in the textiles and leather industry.
