Basic directions of researches:

-The study of thermodynamic and kinetic regularities of evaporation processes, the thermal decomposition of metal sulfides and condensing in a vacuum;

-Development of a vacuum-thermal technology and equipment for processing of polymetallic mineral and technogenic raw materials from non-ferrous metallurgy;

-Creation of vacuum distillation methods and equipment for the refining of metals.

 

Scientific and production communication:

 

The laboratory is actively working to establish new contacts and maintain existing partnerships with a number of organizations: the Akimat of Almaty City, LLP “Kazakhmys Corporation” (Karaganda), JSC “UK TMP” (Ust-Kamenogorsk), Chemical and Steel Institute named after Zh. Abisheva (Karaganda), State Scientific and Production Association of Industrial Ecology “Kazmehanobr” (Almaty).

 

Scientific and technical developments offered to implementation:

 

-The method and device for vacuum distillation refining of silver lead;
-Technology for dearsenation of hard gold-, arsenic-containing raw materials with arsenic conclusion in the low-toxic sulfide  form;
-Vacuum thermal technology of selenium ,lead and cadmium refining;

-Environmentally safe vacuum technology and continuously operating equipment for demercurisation of used devices with mercurial filling.

 

Main achievements:

 

-Were created the theoretical foundations of the vacuum pyro-selection of complex mineral and technogenic raw materials;

-Were created the theoretical foundations of vacuum distillation refining of metals and alloys separation;

-Were developed and implemented vacuum refining process of crude tin at the Novosibirsk Tin Plant.

-Was put into industrial exploitation the vacuum and thermal technology and equipment for recycling of mercury concentrates at the Khaidarkan Mercury Plant (Kyrgyzstan);

-Were developed ecologically safe technologies for dearsenation of hard gold-, arsenic-containing raw materials and demercurisation of mineral and technogenic materials, which are tested in a pilot industrial scale at established vibrovakuum plants of continuous operation principle;

-Created experimental production on refining of rough selenium.

-The participation of the project “Environmentally safe recycling of used energy-saving light sources with mercury filling (fluorescent lamps)” in the International specialized exhibition EXPO-2017 in Astana.
