Valerii Bukhtiyarov, director of Boreskov Institute of Catalysis (Novosibirsk), reported on the prospects of using the renewable vegetable stock in the fuel and petrochemical complex of Tatarstan
Laboratory of Environmental Catalysis emerged from the former Laboratory of Catalytic Heat Generators, which we created in 1983. Primarily we focused on the problems of total catalytic oxidation and catalytic combustion of different fuels, later our interest has expanded to a number of catalytic reactions and processes for environmental protection. Nowadays our research activities are focused on the following three fields of environmental catalysis:
In our research we use a wide array of modern physico-chemical methods and instruments available in the BIC. There is a very productive network with other Institutes of our scientific community in Novosibirsk, we have a number joint research projects with Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, Institute of Chemical Kinetics and Combustion, Institute of Semiconductor Physics, Institute of Nuclear Physics, Institute of Organic Chemistry, Institute of Solid State Chemistry and others. We work in close cooperation with a number of research institutes and universities in other cities around Russia: Tomsk, Omsk, Biysk, Krasnoyarsk, Kemerovo, Perm, Yekaterinburg, Ufa, Kazan, Moscow and St. Petersburg.
