Belarus’ National Academy of Sciences, Rosnanotech intend to set up joint venture
The National Academy of Sciences of Belarus and the Russian corporation Rosnanotech intend to set up a joint venture to produce membranous water purification units using polymeric fibers, BelTA learnt from Alexander Bildiukevich, director of the Institute of Physical-Organic Chemistry of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus.
The scientific and technical council, which will gather in Russia, will pass the final decision concerning the creation of the joint venture, Alexander Bildiukevich noted. If this problem is settled positively, the project will be funded by the Russian side. The cost of the project is estimated at around €30 million, Alexander Bildiukevich said. The implementation of the project may be launched in 2010. According to the scientist, it will become the most ambitious and expensive project of the National Academy of Sciences and Rosnanotech.
According to Alexander Bildiukevich, the new joint venture is expected to produce an export-oriented product. The sales volume of the new company is expected to make up around €10 million a year.
The Institute of Physical-Organic Chemistry has already launched the short-run production of the membranous water purification units. The institute develops technologies for purification, sterilization and fractionating of biologically active substances, systems to process dairy products, juices and wines, systems for purification of sewage. The units designed by the Institute of Physical-Organic Chemistry were introduced into production at more than 50 companies in Belarus and other CIS countries.
The Institute of Physical-Organic Chemistry of the National Academy of Sciences develops polymeric, auxiliary and composite materials for industry, agriculture, ecology and water treatment. Researchers of the institute create technologies for chemical, pharmaceutical and microbiological industry.
