Representatives of Switzerland’s Federal Assembly Visit NUST MISIS

On November 14th, 2017, representatives from Switzerland’s Federal Assembly met with NUST MISIS management with the aim to discuss opportunities for cooperation and to exchange experience in the field of science and education between NUST MISIS and leading universities in Switzerland. Representatives of the Swiss Embassy in Russia, heads of the Swiss-Russian Forum Foundation, members of Switzerland’s National Council, and representatives of the business community attended the meeting.

NUST MISIS Metallurgists First in the World Develop a Unique Furnace for the Highly Efficient Recycling of Industrial Waste

More than 95% of cast-iron in the world is still produced in blast furnaces. Modern blast furnaces are powerful units that produce tons of cast-iron daily, but they require prepared, high-quality raw materials like agglomerate cakes, steel pellets, and iron. Recycling industrial waste that contains iron (of which Russian enterprises alone produce more than 5 million tons of annually) is economically and technologically irresponsible and next-to-impossible in blast furnaces.

NUST MISIS Inventions Awarded Two Gold Medals at iENA-2017

NUST MISIS took part at the 69th International Trade Fair “Ideas — Inventions — New Products —2017”, which was held from November 2nd — 5th, 2017, in Nuremberg (Germany). iENA is one of the world`s oldest major exhibitions of inventions and innovations, annually demonstrating the latest achievements in different areas of science & technology and contributing to the scientific, technological, and industrial exchanges at an international level.

NUST MISIS Scientists to Create Invisible Metamaterials

An international science team consisting of researchers from NUST MISIS and Polytechnic University of Turin has started its work on the creation of the Theory of Absolute Invisibility. The official start of the research project took place during a joint Russian-Italian seminar that took place on November 8th, 2017, at NUST MISIS.

Nanovitamins for Macroharvests: New Generation Fertilizers Based on Metal Nanoparticles Increased Crop Productivity by 25%

A group of NUST MISIS scientists, in cooperation with researchers from both Ryazan State Agrotechnological University (named after P.A. Kostychev) and Derzhavin Tambov State University, have presented their research results of the application of a new generation of innovative fertilizers based on nanopowders of transition metals. Experiments on agricultural crops in the field have shown that the new agro-product’s harvest is more than 25% that of current fertilizers.

Biocompatible Alloy with Elasticity Identical to Bone Tissue Developed at NUST MISIS

A group of researchers from NUST MISIS in cooperation with their colleagues from Canada have developed an alloy with shape memory that has the same elasticity as bone tissue. Developed only from biocompatible metals — titanium, zirconium and niobium — due to its biochemical properties, the alloy can significantly extend the service life of medical implants.

Supercomputer Super Modeling: World-Leading Materials Scientists -Theorists Come to NUST MISIS

World leading experts in the field of computer modeling, together with NUST MISIS’s young scientists, recently convened to discuss the problems stemming from the calculations of complex structures and ways to solve these problems as part of the 3rd International Conference on Electronic Structure Theory for the Accelerated Development of Materials: A New Tool in Materials Science.

Cooperation of CIS Countries in Mining-Metallurgical Industry Discussed at NUST MISIS

On October 25th, 2017, the 3rd meeting of the Public Council for Industrial Policy of CIS States took place. The agenda was a discussion of the series of actions needed to implement the cooperation agreement of CIS states in the mining-metallurgical industry. The meeting attracted representatives from the leading companies in the field of mining-metallurgy, as well as business representatives and delegates from the CIS states embassies. Some detailed issues of NUST MISIS’s cooperation with business-partners from Kazakhstan, Belarus, and Tajikistan were discussed.
