Prof. Inglezakis visited the Molecular Foundry at Berkely lab, US (http://foundry.lbl.gov/) between 3-20 November in the framework of a research trip for expanding the collaboration with one of the top institutions in the world. The research trip was successful opening new opportunities for NU to establish stronger collaboration with one the world’s best labs. Furthrmore, Prf. Inglezakis help a talk on 14 November on “Free and supported nanoparticles in environment and medical applications”, attended by 15 Berkeley lab staff and students.
ESTg researcher Mrs Gaukhar Baidildinova is on a research visit at the Universida de NOVA de Lisboa, Portugal (http://www.unl.pt/en) for the period of 25.06.2017-24.07.2017. Mrs Baidildinova in collaboration with our Portugese partner is will work on the characterization of the porous structure of zeolites by using BET analysis size and distribution, pore volume, and the surface area were determined. Furthermore zeolite is tested towards its ability to remove strodium from aqueous solutions. The possible antimicrobial activity of the cryogel samples were tested against E. coli, a gram-negative, and St. aureus, a gram-positive bacteria, in the minimum inhibition concentration assay according to the standard protocol. Additionally, the cytotoxicity of selected sorbents in comparison with standard materials will be tested in vitro according to the International Standards directive for selection of tests for cytotoxicity.
Main goal of this project is to develop a municipal solid waste (MSW) and coal co-gasification technology for further scale-up and replication in the Republic of Kazakhstan. The prime barrier towards that direction is the lack of information regarding waste quantities, composition and characteristics. For that reason a research program that also includes the present characterization campaign is currently under implementation by the Nazarbayev University.The first part of the characterization campaign included two sampling analysis during September and November 2017 and was implemented by the Nazarbayev University in cooperation with the company ICP Ingenieurgesellschaft mbH from Germany (http://icp-ing.de/stellenangebot-bauingenieur/).
The sampling site was located in the Astana Waste Polygon, where a roofed paved area was provided to the project team by the landfill operating authority. In total ten samples ranging from 212 to 278 kg were analyzed in respect to their composition. The total amount of waste sorted was approximately 2.500 kg. The results will be published soon.
