Costa Rica News – With the exponential growth of plasma applications on scientists’ minds, the TEC plasma lab will be housed in a new place, in the Technological Institute of Costa Rica.
The current headquarters is in Cartago.
They will build a two-story building with a total area of 1,050 square meters, to be located on the southern side of the ITCR lake.
The first two stages of construction will cost ¢200 million.
They are growing and it’s a positive thing that they need more space. They also plan to grow projects by adding new lines of research for sources of energy in industry, medicine and agriculture.
