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.

Call for SibFU Postdoc Fellowship Program (Wave 2)

Siberian Federal University is announcing the SibFU Postdoc Fellowship Program (Wave 2). The purpose of the program is to encourage young researchers with PhD Degree (or Candidate of Sciences degree) to contribute to the University research and education activities.

SibFU scientists introduced new material to store hydrogen

Scientists of Siberian Federal University and the Institute of Physics of the SB RAS produced a new material for hydrogen storage. The material based on magnesium hydride can store hydrogen mass of about 7 % of its own weight, and this is a record capacity among other similar materials.

Admission 2017

Admission 2017 officially starts on June 20. You can apply for a course of Russian as a foreign language (RFL) and then proceed with a degree programme in Russian. Enrolment for RFL courses is open all year round.

Luminous Bacteria Will Help to Measure Radioactivity

Siberian biophysicists have conducted a research concerning a biological effect of low-dose gamma radiation. The results have been published in the Journal of Environmental Radioactivity, one of the leading scientific journals in the world among those dedicated to the issues of environmental radioactivity.
