The teacher of RUDN University Political Economy Department Anna Verenikina attended the 7th International Conference on Industrial Technology and Management (ICITM 2018)

On the 7 – 9 of March the 7th International Conference of Industrial Technologies and Management ICITM 2018 was held in one of the oldest colleges of Oxford University, St. Anne's College.

On the 7 — 9 of March the 7th International Conference of Industrial Technologies and Management ICITM 2018 was held in one of the oldest colleges of Oxford University, St. Anne’s College.

International Conference on Industrial Technology and Management is headed by the prestigious International Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers IEEE, which has 423,000 participants in 160 countries. The results of the conference automatically include into the scientific databases of Ei Compendex, the Elsevier research catalog on engineering and to the Scopus database.

This year participants of the 7-th International Conference on Industrial Technology and Management discussed e-commerce, engineering economics and cost analysis, intelligent production systems and information processing in the workplace. One of 80 reports at the ICITM 2018 was the presentation of the lecturer of the Department of Political Economy Anna Verenikina on the management of environmental risks in terms of one of the largest Russian industrial companies — Rusal. Co-author of the report of Anna Verenikina was Professor of the American University of Columbus John Finley.

Many specialists recognize practice of Rusal on implementation of the environmental management system of the international standard ISO 14001 as the most successful in the Russian practice, where international environmental standards are often on the horizon of planning. The ecological infrastructure (commercial technologies and services for monitoring the air and water basin, eliminating the consequences of pollution and restoring ecosystems) and legislation are in a formative stage. Therefore, such giants as Rusal are working not only on their reputation in foreign markets, but also on changing the standards of domestic production.

Foreign participants of ICITM 2018 were especially interested in the issue of integrating the environmental management system into Industry 4.0 — a single concept of industrial production based on product lifecycle management and a smart manufacturing strategy involving the use of Internet: cloud computing and cybernetic systems.

Biologists from RUDN University discovered the secret of flaxseed oil with long shelf life

Biologists from RUDN University working together with their colleagues from the Institute of Molecular Biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Flax studied the genes that determine the fatty acid composition in flaxseed oil and identified polymorphisms in six of them. The team also found out what gene variations could extend the shelf life of flaxseed oil. This data can be used to improve the genetic selection of new flax breeds. The results were published in the BMC Plant Biology journal.

Mowing Is More Harmful to Soil Than Grazing

A team of biologists analyzed soil samples from a pasture and a regularly mowed meadow and found out that grazing lets more carbon get into the soil than mowing. This, in turn, improves the carbon cycle and makes microorganisms more efficient.

Soil scientists suggest method for remediating urban garden soils contaminated with lead and arsenic

The soils of urban gardens and vegetable patches contain a lot of toxicants (including lead and arsenic) in high concentrations which can be harmful to the health of children and people with chronic diseases. A team of soil scientists from RUDN University suggested a remediation method developed based on data collected in a garden of Brooklyn (NY, U.S.).
