Scientists of SibFU got the first batch of eco-friendly pitch

The team of scientists obtained the first batch of alternative binder for self-baking anodes in the production of aluminum — ecological pitch. Works on developing technology for obtaining a unique product are conducted in the School of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering in cooperation with the Engineering and Technology Center of RUSAL and with the support of scientists from the Institute of Chemistry and Chemical Technology of the SB RAS.

Scientists of SibFU will make trees grow faster

Scientists of Siberian Federal University created a fertile surface layer of soil in the laboratory — a biomass that will significantly simplify and accelerate the process of reclamation in disturbed lands, including northern territories, where the biological stage of reclamation is greatly hampered by considerable remoteness and inaccessibility, severe climatic conditions and hydrothermal regime of soils.

Scientists developed “smart fertilizer”

Scientists of Siberian Federal University and Krasnoyarsk scientific center of SB RAS developed the "smart fertilizer". Researchers combined traditional fertilizer with a biodegradable polymer, which allowed to slow down the process of decomposition and release of a nutrient into the soil. As a result, the use of fertilizers has been improved and the pressures on the environment have been reduced. The results of the study are published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
