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 scientists have shown how much taking into account the real shape of the satellite affects the probability of collision of two space objects

RUDN scientists have clarified the model for calculating the probability that space objects may encounter. Classical models do not take into account the real shape and orientation of objects -it seemed that this increases the calculated probability several times. The results are published in the journal Cosmic Research.
