RUDN expert represents Russia at the 3rd International Conference on Energy Materials and their Applications in Spain

9-11 May, 2018, the 3rd International Conference on Energy Materials and their Applications was held on the campus of Viriato University of Salamanca, Zamora, Spain.

ICEMA is an annual event, where scientists, engineers, representatives of universities and industry of the world present and discuss current trends in the development of new energy materials and resource-saving. In the last two years, the ICEMA activities have been successful in Seoul (South Korea) and Hiroshima (Japan).

The topics of the ICEMA 2018 included issues of energy material, hydrogen energy, hydrogen production, fuel elements, biofuels, solar energy, nanomaterials,

Ekaterina Markova, senior lecturer of the RUDN Department of Physical and Colloid Chemistry was the only representative from Russia at such a large inter-branch event. She made an oral presentation "Investigations of the catalytic activity of the newest nanomaterial on the example of nanofiber alumina for the modern energy in the cracking reaction".

RUDN University Scientists Fit Pets in the Classification of Ecosystem Services

RUDN University scientists conducted a survey among residents of Moscow and found out the reasons why they have pets. The results proved that pets should be included in the classification of ecosystem services. This will help to consider the interests of pet owners in urban planning and management.

Scientists Reveal the Water Column of the Yamal Lakes Can Be a Microbial Filter

Scientists from the Winogradsky Institute of Microbiology RAS, RUDN University, St. Petersburg State University and the Tyumen Scientific Centre SB RAS studied the microbial communities from several lakes of the Yamal Peninsula. It turned out that methanotrophs (bacteria that use methane as a source of energy) consume methane more actively in the deep mature lakes of the peninsula than in small thermokarst lakes. In this regard, methane emissions into the atmosphere from the surface of deep lakes are low, and only small (relatively younger thermokarst lakes with constitutional ground ice) can make a significant contribution to methane emissions in the north of Western Siberia. Thus, bacteria perform an important function for the climate balance — they reduce the emission of methane into the atmosphere.
