Environmental Discovery Made at Kazan State University



Discovery of Environmentally Friendly 

Catalyst for Industrial Polyethylene Production

A researcher at Alexander Butlerov Institute of Chemistry, Kazan Federal University in Russia, Alia Khusnuriyalova has discovered a new environment-friendly catalyst for industrial polyethylene production.

The newly discovered catalyst will be helpful in polyethylene production, which is used for transporting gas and oil pipelines, synthetic oil, lubricants, cleaning agents, and other household items. So far, Russia has imported such products from outside the country. “The newly discovered catalyst will be helpful in polyethylene sc06bproduction.”Khusnuriyalova is a 5th year student and is associated with the research of developing new catalyst systems under the guidance of Dmitryi Yakhvarov, the head of the laboratory. Kazan Federal University supports domestic collaboration of research and production, and Alia is a member of the New Catalysts for Petrochemistry research lab. The researcher claims that catalysts for polymerisation can be produced from the waste of other chemical industries, which is environment-friendly and low cost.

The results of Alia’s research has been patented, and are published in Organometallics, a bi-weekly journal published by the American Chemical Society. The findings have been announced at Russian and international conferences

  1. Innovations like this is the need of the hour to save our planet from industrial pollution, right?

    Thanks a lot for sharing this news, Dear Steve 🙂

    Have a beautiful day…

    1. Yes, agreed. By the way it’s good to see you, haven’t seen you for a while. Right now I’m creating pages for all my guest bloggers – working on your right now. Should be up either today or tomorrow.

      1. I have promised something, almost an year ago, but couldn’t deliver… but it’s still there in my mind and you can expect it soon 🙂

        Yes Steve, I was away from blogging for a few months in between, to prepare for some competitive exams.

        I tried for a career switch and an even better thing happened.

        Now I am working with some wonderful people in a company in the field of ‘Community Based Tourism’.

        I am travelling a lot and meeting so many people from different backgrounds now and I really hope, I would be able to come up with many more interesting stories and images.

        Thank you so much for your encouragement and appreciation all these days.

      2. Wow, that’s incredible. And you get to travel to boot, I must admit I’m a bit jealous. I’d love to do some more traveling. Getting a world education is invaluable. So tell me do you get to use your photography in your new work? What is community based tourism? Sounds like it’s exclusively India, am I right? Anyway looking forward to seeing whatever you put together. I just saw one of your pictures with the dandelion blowing in front of the sunset.

      3. Yea, That’s one of my favourite image 🙂

        I was lucky with the timing and a little help from my cousin 🙂

        Okey, Community based Tourism is an initiative from a group of social activists in Kerala, which addresses the ill-effects of mass tourism in local population and environment.

        The solution they have come up with is a network of ‘homestays’ run by well trained villagers in beautiful country sides. The additional revenue they obtained through tourism with very little investments, is helping them to continue with their agriculture activities in a sustainable manner.

        Our company provides training for the Homestay providers, Taxi drivers and guides along with all the marketing and customer relations.

        Hope you got an idea about our work 🙂

        For me it provides great opportunities to travel around and photograph the beautiful country side of India and also get in touch with a lot of interesting people 🙂

      4. Hm.. interesting talk. Thx guys.

        However i didn’t get it completely about the ill-effects of mass tourism.

        Sure i undestand the negative effects a lot – esp. to local population….
        But what kind of damage it does in matter of environment? o_0
        Or there was a point of internal indian tourism and not international one in this regard?
