Microreactor technology comes to Nizhny Novgorod

Nizhny Novgorod State University named after Lobachevsky will become the main center of the project to establish the National Center for High Chemical Technologies. On April 18-19, professor of microfluidic chemistry and technological processes at the Eindhoven University of Technology, Volker Hessel, will pay a visit to the region.

Hessel will deliver a report about "the possibilities of application of microstructure reactors in various industries." The report will be devoted to the European experience and technology transfer to Russia. To date, microreactor technology is used in Europe, USA and Japan. The technology is used in the pharmaceutical industry, oil refining, and other areas.

The use of modern technologies will make production more secure and more efficient.  The microreactor technology allows to cut production costs by reducing production area  (from 100 to 1000 times). It also reduces the environmental risks of chemical production, production time and, most importantly, the time from the development of chemical plant before it is launched into operation.

In Russia, the project starts at multiple sites, with the basic one located in the Nizhny Novgorod State University. The university is a Russian center of chemical science and technology. The level of fundamental and theoretical studies conducted by Nizhny Novgorod chemists, according to Professor Hessel, meets highest modern standards.

Regional centers will be located in Novosibirsk, St. Petersburg and Tver. The centers will deal with solving applied problems on each of key areas in the field of chemical micro-and nanotechnology.

The new project will involve both domestic and foreign experts. It is assumed that the main university of Nizhny Novgorod and will prepare new specialists.  Students and graduate students will be given an opportunity to undergo internship abroad.

According to experts, the establishment of the National Center for High Chemical Technologies in the Nizhny Novgorod region will lead to the modernization of existing enterprises, by introducing latest chemical technologies, creating new industries and, as a consequence, creating new jobs. This will significantly increase tax revenues, develop scientific and educational base and increase the investment appeal of the region.

 

A year after the constitutional referendum of December 4th, 2016 that saw the victory of the NAY and the blatant defeat of the government front that had proposed the referendum, it can be said with certainty that the trauma for the defeated is now past. But there is still fear in them, not so hidden either...

Italy: Free fall

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
