Department of Biotechnology ASTU
Content Development of the department Scientific directions Waste treatment and utilization Proposals for cooperation
Development of the department Formation of the independent course «Technology of wood hydrolysis production» Creation of the department «Chemistry of wood, pulp and wood hydrolysis production» Foundation of the Department of Biotechnology
Department personnel Head of the Department, professor, D.Chem.Sc.Sokolov O.M. Professors: Gelfand E.D.(D.Sc.) Novozhilov E.V.(D.Sc.) Kamennyi V.I.(Cand.Sc.) Associate Professors: Popova G.I.(Сand.Sc.) Chuhchin D.G.(Cand.Sc.) Churkina U.V.(Cand.Sc.) Laboratory staff Post-grad.students
Cooperation Department of biotechnology Technology Pulp and paper mills Food industry Enzymes production Companies Science Universities Research Centers
Cooperation Pulp and paper mills- Arkhangelsk PPM, Kotlas PPM, Solombala PPM; Brewery, Dairy farming, Bakery, Alcoholic beverage Companies; Enzymes production companies- Novozymes A/S (Denmark), «РОСАЛКО»(Russia); Universities- MSU.
Scientific directions Basic: 1. Processing of biochemical hydrolyzates (distillery dregs, liquors) and sewage (purification); 2.Separation processes for bioproducts and microorganisms selection; 3.Development of new methods of medias preparation for microorganisms cultivation (yeasts, moulds, bacteria); 4. Dewatering methods for biological wastes; 5. Biochemical treatment of molasses and vegetal matter.
Scientific directions New: 1. Enzymatic treatment in pulp and paper industry (bleaching, pitch control, recycling of cardboard and newsprint); 2. Improvement of the taste and quality of the fruit juice, beer and soft drinks; 3. Waste control: dewatering of the sewage wastes with biodegradable additions and enzymes ;
Scientific directions New: 4. Development of the biotechnological methods for oil production; 5. Automatic methods of microbial suspension monitoring; 6.Treatment of vegetal matter with low- temperature plasma.
Research Goals Four well-aimed «E»s for perfect result E conomy E nvironmental safety E ducation E fficiency
Waste treatment and utilization Basic stages of the waste treatment: Dewatering Main agents: mineral and organic components, bioactive substances, enzymes. Deodorizing Rendering harmless Utilization
Waste treatment and utilization Structure and composition control of the biological sludge
Future projects and Proposals for cooperation Use of enzyme technology in pulp and paper industry; Biological purification of sewage and waste utilization; Analytical methods for enzymes purification and proteins fractionation;
Future projects and Proposals for cooperation Exchange of information (new technology, biologically active substances, enzymes); United efforts to make a leap from the lab work to mill scale; To find new directions with good prospects for mutual work.
