In 2012 the Branch joined the Programme “Eco-Schools” for performing scientific and methodical research as well as actions in ecology The beginning
7 STEPS Methodology of the international programme "Eco-Schools" is based upon 7 steps due to the standards ISO 14001/EMAS 1.Eco-School Committee. 2.Environmental Review. 3.Action Plan. 4.Monitoring and Evaluation. 5.Curriculum Work. 6.Informing and Involving. 7.Producing Eco-Code.
The most active participants are: ChairmanPost Buzikov Shamil Victorovichdocent, candidate of technical sciences MembersPost Legkov Anatoliy Ivanovich senior teacher Popov Vyacheslav Mikhailovich docent, candidate of technical sciences Rozhina Vera Anatolyevnascience deputy director, candidate of pedagogical sciences Simonov Maxim Vasilyevichresearch worker of Agricultural Research Institute, candidate of technical sciences Salnikov Dmitry Vitalyevich student of day-time department Sapunov Dmitry Igorevich student of day-time department Vinogradov Alexey Alexandrovich student of extramural department Step 1 Eco-School Committee
Step 2 Environmental Review According to the data of the Administration of Ecology and Natural Resources in Kirov region, one of the prevailing air pollution sources is automobile transport emissions. What did we do?
What we breathe in Kirov Photos by student Alexey Vinogradov
Thus we defined the Eco-school theme – “Transport”: – Biofuel – Eco-car Step 2 Environmental Review What did we do?
Toxic emissions evaluation of automobiles of the Branch’s teachers and students. Video and text analysis on how biofuels are used in Russia and abroad. Study of the biofuel usage in Kirov. The basic tasks and directions of work: Step 2 Environmental Review
Step 3 Action Plan 1.Composing a questionnaire for toxic exhaust evaluation. 2.Questioning of teachers and students of the Branch. 3.Studying mass-media reports, scientific articles and video materials on biofuel usage abroad, in Russia and in Kirov. 4.Round-table conversation with students about toxic exhaust influence on the environment and biofuel usage as well (with watching videoclips). 5.Writing the scientific articles about biofuels for internal combustion engine. 6.Eco-school section at the summer scientific conference.
The questionnaire for toxic automobile exhaust evaluation (questioning was fulfilled by students A. Vinogradov, V. Zhdanov, D. Salnikov, D. Sapunov) Step 4 Monitoring and Evaluation
Calculation of pollutants emission by automobiles belonging to the teachers and students of the Branch, per month Step 4 Fuel Vehicle Emission Standard Emission, kg COVOCNO x SO 2 CO 2 PM Petrol 0 (Euro 0)502,562,360,31,15366,7– 1 (Euro 1 and up)159,817,843,14,023184,7– Sum662,380,1103,45,128551,4– Diesel1 (Euro 1 and up)10,82,043,12,34448,51,6 Sum673,182,1146,57,432999,91,6 The questionnaire results and calculations were made by candidates of technical sciences Sh. Buzikov and M. Simonov
Analysis of laws on biofuel usage. Analysis of foreign and domestic experience of biofuel usage (docents M. Solovyova, V. Rozhina, students A. Vinogradov, D. Sapunov) Step 4 Conversation and video watching with students (docent Sh. Buzikov)

Russia Ethanol is produced of straw, sawdust and timber waste
on 22 April 2013 Kirov Biochemical Factory distributed a ton of biofuel Е85 (85% of ethanol, 15% of petrol) to citizens free of charge Kirov C on cern for ec ology is co n cern for the fut ure !
Kirov November 2010: having started in Kirov, the car “Lada-Kalina” fueled by Е85 easily overpassed about a thousand kilometres and finished its tour in Moscow
Every summer there is the scientific conference “Current Problems of Humanitarian, Economic and Technical Sciences“ in the Branch. Lecturers and students of MSIU and other universities of Kirov, post-graduate students and specialists take part in the conference. In 2013 in the 7 th issue of Proceedings of the conference the results of eco-school work were published, and among them are students’ 6 articles devoted to alternative fuels. Scientific conference
Environmental problems are studied in the following disciplines: Ecology Foreign Language Philosophy Social Science Concepts of Modern Natural Science Theory of Automobile Heat Engines and Power Units Operational Materials Step 5 Curriculum Work What did we do?
1.Information about the “Eco-Schools” programme and the conference at the meetings of the Academic Council and the stand of the Branch 2.Information at our site (http://krfmsiu.ru/content/view/51/64/) 3.Registration at the “Eco-Schools” site (www.eco-schools.org and www.eco-schools-hsbc.org) 4.Information about the main directions of our work at the site of Kirov State Universal Scientific Library named after A. Herzen (http://www.herzenlib.ru/ecology/ecology_partnership/detail.php ?CODE=ek_part_obrazovanie) Step 6 Informing and Involving What did we do?
5. Ongoing scientific cooperation programme “Biofuel for Diesel Engine” with Belorus State Agricultural Academy (Gorki, the Republic Belarus) and Podolskiy State Technical University (Kamenets-Podolskiy, Ukraine). Step 6 In 2012 docent S. Plotnikov defended the doctoral thesis “Diesel engine uprating by means of creating new alternative fuels and improving fuel- injection equipment”; student V. Zagrebin under guidance of docents S. Plotnikov, Sh. Buzikov applied for the patent on new fuel emulsion for ICE. In 2013 V. Zagrebin with his scientific advisor S. Plotnikov published an article at the “International Student Science Forum” (URL: www.scienceforum.ru/2013/69/3497)
Step 6 Involving the University Community and Authorities About 200 students and 30 teachers of the Branch took part in the questioning (see slide 15). 43 students participated in the conversation (slide 17) and scientific conference (slide 30). All 400 students and 30 teachers were being informed of the Programme “Eco-Schools” via meetings and site. Everyone can get access to the hottest information (text and video) about biofuel usage at “Eco-School” page of the Branch’s site. The materials are being collected by students – members of the Eco-School Committee. We didn’t feel any difficulties when involving the university community because everyone understands, “Concern for ecology is concern for the future!” However we couldn’t get any financial or moral encouragement from Kirov authorities. The imperfection of Russia’s laws in ethanol production, oil magnates’ monopoly don’t allow to implement wide biofuel research and mass production.
Step 7 Eco-Code ЭКОЛОГИЯ МЫШЛЕНИЯ Маленький корабль по имени "Земля" Мчится сквозь Ничто и, в общем, в Никуда. Больше бы ума команде корабля, Чтобы осознать, что близится беда. Правы мудрецы – чужой прокол не впрок. Собственный финал готовят чудаки, Предками не раз полученный урок Забывают вновь, рассудку вопреки. Снова мнят себя творения венцом, Выжигая мир, как пачку сигарет, И в который раз на рандеву с Творцом Общество спешит, презрев любой запрет. 23.05.2013 Анатолий Иванович Легков, ст. преподаватель филиала What did we do? ENVIRONMENTAL THINKING Imagine: “the Earth”, a small ship, Through Nothing to Nowhere goes. The crew has so little of mind To see how the trouble is close. The sages were surely right: “Learn wisdom by follies of others.” We’re living the savvy despite, The lessons do not benefit us. We’re thinking too much of ourselves, We drive and pollute, living fast. We’re hastening to afterworld, Disdaining all bans. Please, avast! 23.05.2013 composed by A. Legkov, senior teacher of the Branch, translated by docent V. Rozhina
Green Flag Award On 23 October the Branch received the Green Flag. The meeting was held in Kirov State Universal Scientific Library named after A. Herzen
Prospects of work 1.Continue studying environmental issues in different disciplines 2.Engaging students in scientific work devoted to toxic emissions of internal combustion engines when working on petrol, diesel and biofuel 3.Evaluation of biofuel influence upon the Kirov region environment 4.Preparation of recommendations on biofuel application for the interested representatives of Kirov authority, automakers and ordinary drivers What are we to do this year?
Support and material resources To continue working and implement results, our Eco-school needs: а) colleagues-adherents from other universities, research institutes, specialists of biomonitoring and chemical analysis; b) interested sponsors; c) purchase of the equipment for rig testing engines when working on biofuel; d) creating the specialized laboratory for experimental studies. What do we need for going on?
