Engineering laboratory of Eurasian National University develops new projects

 The Eurasian National University  believes that innovations can serve as strong impetus to the development of scientific innovations and local science has enough potential for it. 

Launching the engineering laboratory  opened up new possibilities for research, especially in the area on nanotechnologies.  The laboratory employs the best graduates. Daryn Borgekov is one of the first graduates of nanotechnology and nano-materials department. Today he does his second year of a master course. Last year he underwent advanced training in the Czech Republic. Young scientists invented a method of obtaining simple and cheap water filters from polymer materials.

Daryn BORGEKOV, HIGHEST CATEGORY SPECIALIST, ENGINEERING LABORATORY:

-With the help of this filter, we will receive clean water. This is the first filter of a kind in Kazakhstan where the filtration process is conducted with the help of a polymer film. Production of these filters is cheap and filters are very simple. Currently, we have received a lot of orders from the Defence Ministry. With the help from our produce our military officers can clean water in the river and use it for drinking.

Under the support of the Ministry of Education and Science, specialists of the laboratory are running research on 8 projects, including 3 focused on innovative results.

Maxim ZDOROVETS, HEAD, ENGINEERING LABORATORY OF GUMILYOV EURASIAN NATIONAL UNIVERSITY:

-The scientific and technological potential of the accelerator unit is 20 years. It means that we can develop several scientific directions on the radiation material science, nanotechnologies, membrane technologies, create filters for cleaning air, blood, create new materials, cultivate structures of nanowire in these filters and create absorption surfaces. We have a lot of plans. We have young people, who are interested in these projects. Financing and unique equipment from the government will allow achieving results and do research on the global level.

The winner of the Altyn sapa presidential award, the Eurasian National University pays special attention to cooperation of science and production. Together with foreign colleagues scientists of the university are going to continue research in the area of alternative energy and the prevention of different diseases.

ENU Scientists present their inventions

 Local scientists have developed a new method of heating-fuel saving. The main innovation of scientists from the Lev Gumilyov Eurasian National University is in switching the University’s boiler rooms from diesel fuel to heavy oil-water system. This is a pilot project being implemented at a local innovative park

Vladimir KIM, HEAD, INNOVATIVE PARK:

- We are focusing on the development of alternative sources of energy, which are using biological wastes. It is peculiar for Kazakhstan, since every year we collect almost 50 million tonnes of bio wastes. Using this amount of wastes in the alternative energy sources equals to 20 million tonnes of coal. In case we use these wastes for heating, we will be able to replace 15-20% of ordinary heating fuel.

Additionally, with the help of genetic research, scientists of the University can define factors resulting in different diseases in advance. Scientists of the Eurasian National University believe that it is the result of special attention the government pays to the development of science. They are convinced that the Kazakhstan 2050 strategy will give a boost to the increase of the intellectual potential of the local science. In recent years, scientists have been focused on genetic research. The Cellular Biology and Biotechnology Research Centre achieved considerable results in the molecular medicine. Currently, the University is implementing joint projects with the Japanese National Institute of Biomedical Innovation. 

Rakhmetkazhy BERSIMBAI, ACADEMIC, KAZAKH NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES, DIRECTOR OF CELLULAR BIOLOGY AND BIOTECHNOLOGY RESEARCH CENTRE:

- We have defined what genes trigger such diseases as asthma and which factors influence the work of these genes. Our scientists have achieved considerable results working together with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Scientists of the Kazakhstan research institute also work in the area of phytochemistry. About 1.5 billion hectares of land in the world are under the threat of desertification. The ecological situation in the Aral region and fertile land deterioration are topical for Kazakhstan. At present, scientists are studying the issue of efficiency of growing halophytic plants, which are resistant to desert conditions.  

Malika MYRZABAYEVA, SENIOR TEACHER, GUMILYOV EURASIAN NATIONAL UNIVERSITY:

- It is expected that by 2050 the population of the planet will have reached 10 billion people. This is why our main aim is to increase the yield of grain crops. Additionally, we are researching into defence mechanisms of plants. 

Specialists say that entrepreneurs should understand that 80% of economic development success depends on research and technological achievements. They should cooperate with science. This is why, the innovative park staff is going to organize a meeting featuring businessmen and scientists, which will increase the interaction between industry and science.
