National Academy of Science of Belarus and “RosNanoTech” Corporation, Russia are going to create a joint production of devices using polymer fibers in Belarus

According to Prof. Sergey Rakhmanov, Deputy Chairman of the Presidium of the National Academy of Science of Belarus (NAS), the NAS and Russian Corporation “RosNanoTech” are going to create a joint production of devices using polymer fibers.

"RosNanoTech" has analyzed Belarusian developments in nanotechnologies which might be prospective for the Russian market. As a result, the one mentioned above has been chosen. Later, it has passed through three stages of assessment. At the moment, the idea of creating a production in Belarus with appropriate investment from Russia is being considered by the top-managers of “RosNanoTech”. Polymer fibers have got the ion-exchange and filter characteristics simultaneously: they stop the dust and exchange harmful ions to the useful ones. Based on these fibers which are produced in a few countries including Belarus, unique devices for water processing could be developed for wide range of home and industrial utilization.

"We suppose to implement this project jointly with Russian colleagues and produce large quantities of devices for domestic markets, and also for export. We plan to start the project this year", Prof. Rakhmanov said.
