It was arranged to get an insight into a complexity of the mercury pollution of the north Pavlodar and a Lake-reservoir Balkyldak. Information about hydro-geological environment and evolution of mercury within the lake sediments are important to understand the variety and distribution of the mercury pollution sources within this area. On the first part of this field the participants (dr. A. Korobeinyk, dr. S. Azat and PhD V. Yapiev) learned about the regional sources of pollution. Furthermore, area of lake boarders was gridded and then aqueous, solid, sediment and microbiological samples were collected for analysis.
Nazarbayev University’s American Institute of Chemical Engineer’s Students Chapter has been selected as an Outstanding Students Chapter for the 2016-2017 school year. The award will be presented in Minneapolis, US the coming October. This is the second consecutive award after the 2015-2016 presented in San Francisco, US last November. As Students Chapter Advisor since 2015 I am doing my best to bring this kind of international recognition to NU.
The paper authored by V. J. Inglezakis and M. M. Fyrillas is entitled: “Adsorption Fixed Beds Modeling Revisited; Generalized Solutions for S-Shaped Isotherms”
