Foreign businessmen intend to invest in new technologies in Kazakhstan
Investments in innovations may be a promising prospect. Foreign businessmen intend to invest in new technologies in Kazakhstan. The latest developments in the sphere of engineering pose a particular interest. These were presented at the International Conference in Shymkent. For instance, this sorghum stalk can become a breakthrough in the food industry in the near future. It can be used for production of citric acid and sugar. Previously the plant was used as fodder.
Aidarbek BOLYSBEK, DEAN, SCHOOL OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERING, AUEZOV STATE UNIVERSITY:
Now we want to extract bioethanol, that is, biofuel. The plant can be used to make alcohol, citric acid and sugar, sugar concentrate, caramel and even juice.
Every idea is aimed at creating certain things, scientists say. Many spent their lives for their inventions and now ready to introduce them.
Hussin WANG, CONFERENCE PARTICIPANT:
We have been working with Kazakh scientists for 4 years. We work on the joint project on extracting phytin from rice husk. This is a very interesting project.
According to the inventors, advanced technologies are extensively introduced in industries. Auezov State University’s professor Kairat Islamkulov invented a special coating that extends the life of metal tools. The coating is now used in large enterprises.
Kairat ISLAMKULOV, PROFESSOR, AUEZOV STATE UNIVERSITY:
Tools’ wear resistance is increased by 5-6 times, meaning it’s service time grew by 5-6 times. It saves time and cost, so much work has been reduced.
Elmira SUKHANBERDIYEVA, KAZAKH VICE MINISTER OF EDUCATION AND SCIENCE:
Research in chemistry, engineering and bioengineering is gaining momentum. There is a steady pace of science development. We have much to be proud.
