RUDN expert tells about ecological risks management in RUSAL at an international conference in Oxford
7 — 9 March, one of the oldest colleges of Oxford University, St,Anne’s College hosted 7th International Conference on Industrial Technology and Management (ICITM 2018).

Industrial Technology and Management provides an excellent international forum for sharing knowledge and results in theory, methodology and applications of Industrial Technology and Management. The Conference looks for significant contributions to all major fields of the Industrial Technology and Management in theoretical and practical aspects. The aim of the conference is to provide a platform to the researchers and practitioners from both academia as well as industry to meet and share cutting-edge development in the field.

ICITM has been an annual event which was held in many places till now. ICITM 2018 welcomed author submission of papers concerning any branch of the Industrial Technology and Management, and their applications in education, and other subjects. The subjects covered by the ICITM 2018 include E-Business and E-Commerce, Engineering Economy and Cost Analysis, Information Processing and Engineering, Reliability and Maintenance Engineering and their applications.

ICITM conference proceedings are indexed by El Compendex and Scopus.

One of the reports was made my Anna Verinikina, lecturer of the department of political economics of RUDN Faculty of Economics who talked about economic risks management by the example of RUSAL, one of the biggest Russian companies. Co-author of the report – professor John Finley (Columbus University, USA).

Participants of ICITM 2018 were especially interested in the integration of eco management system in Industry 4.0 – a unified concept of production based on product life cycle management and smart production strategy with the use of IoT and cyber systems.

RUDN soil scientists developed a new method for assessing soil fertility

RUDN soil scientists have revealed a direct correlation between the rate of soil formation of carbon dioxide, called CO2 emissions, and the content of microbial biomass in it. It is known that CO2 emission from soil is mainly conditioned by respiration of soil microorganisms and plant roots. The more CO2 soil emits, the more microbial biomass it usually contains. It was shown that CO2 emission by chernozem of different ecosystems (or different types of land use) correlates with the content of microbial biomass, and most closely with the rate of its microbial respiration. And the soil with good microbial properties has the “best quality”, is more fertile, provides the highest yield of crops and other plant biomass.

RUDN chemist developed a new catalyst for “green” biofuels

A RUDN chemist has synthesized a catalyst for the production of gamma-valerolactone — an energy-intensive “green” biofuel. The catalyst based on zirconium dioxide and zeolite has shown high efficiency in converting the waste of wood plant materials — methyl levulinate — to gamma-valerolactone.
