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.

Currently, the mining-metallurgical sector of CIS countries is in the process of the globalization of commodity markets and the development of processing subsectors.

The aim of the cooperation agreement is to contribute to organizations in the field of mining-metallurgy of the CIS countries while forming mutually beneficial cooperative ties aimed at the improvement of economic efficiency, technological and innovative upgrade, resource management, energy efficiency, and the environmental safety of the industry.

The agreement’s implementation will make it possible to work toward solutions to current problems in the mining-metallurgical complex, as well as the creation of a mutually beneficial competitive environment in the CIS market of mining-metallurgical products.

“I think that cooperation between corporations and scientific institutions of the CIS countries will be very fruitful and will benefit all enterprises of the mining — metallurgy industry”, said Vyacheslav Khvan, the NUST MISIS Vice-Rector of Student Resident Hall Complexes and Relations with CIS Countries.

The representatives of the mining-metallurgical industry from Belarus and Tajikistan were intrigued by NUST MISIS’s current developments, especially in the field of industrial waste processing and the production of alumina from non-standard raw materials.

“The meeting was very interesting for me, and I hope that through cooperation we will be able to solve emerging issues and problems. Today, the topic of the development and implementation of aggregate processing technologies of industrial waste in metallurgical production is one of the most actual”, said Yuriy Karpik, Deputy Director on Manufacturing at Mogilev Metallurgical Works Company.
