Physics

In the BENEBION process, irradiation from Cobalt 60 in the form of electromagnetic radiation photons is absorbed by the products being processed, causing the ionization of its atoms and the beneficial effects on these materials.

The absorption of radiation in the products is carried out primarily by two physical processes of the interaction of electromagnetic radiation with matter, which are: the photoelectric effect and the Compton effect.

In both effects, the kinetic energy of the electromagnetic radiation is transferred partially or totally to the electrons of the atoms, causing the ionization and the consequent appearance of free radicals and ions with high chemical reactivity.

By recombining these highly active chemical species, they cause damage to the DNA of flies or bacteria, eliminating them or rendering them unviable to develop.
