-Processing technology of oxidized nickel ore by smelting in a liquid bath.

Main achievements:

-Was developed the theory of liquid-phase oxidation processes of metal sulfides and reducing metal oxides and of their melts;

-Conversion technology of copper matte using liquid dump slag as a flux was introduced at the Zhezkazgan smelter;

-Theory of fluxing properties of silicate ores and slags used in the production of copper smelting;

-In cooperation with Eastern Research Institute of Nonferrous Metals developed and mastered at the Irtysh polymetallic plant KIVCET method of smelting copper-zinc concentrates and industrial products;

-Smelting technology in a liquid bath, developed in conjunction with MISA, is used at the Balkhash smelter since 1985, in 2004 the Balkhash smelter has been fully transferred to the smelting technology in a liquid bath.
