The State Intellectual Property Service of the Ministry of Economy and Finances of Turkmenistan issued patents on number of inventions presented by the scientists of the Institute of Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences of Turkmenistan.
The Institute of Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences of Turkmenistan has been carrying out researches in cooperation with the State Concerns Turkmenhimiya, Turkmengaz, Turkmennebit, State Corporation Turkmengeologiya, ministries of Industry and Communication, Agriculture and Natural Protection as well as other organizations and private entities on contractual base for six years.
As a result of the cooperation, it gained an experience of commercialization of scientific proposals. The focus in the proposals is made on implementation of economically effective technologies related with the use of local raw materials, innovative solutions and manufacture of products that can compete in international markets.
Quality fuel from associated product
Method of using of pyrolysis gasoline during the production of A-95 gasoline at Turkmenbashy Refinery Complex has been submitted to the Unified State Register. The scientists of Chemical Production Technologies Department of the Institute together with the specialists of the refinery developed this method. With the implementation of the method, associated product, which is received during production of polyethylene and polypropylene at the plant in Kiyanly turns into quality fuel.
Shoe polish from waste products
Turkmenabat Chemical Plant has commissioned experimental unit for production of shoe polish with water resistance effect. Output capacity of the unit is 1,000 kg per day. Specialists of facility and scientists of the Institute of Chemistry developed technology of receiving new product from the wastes of oil refinery and carbon produced by the plant in Hazar.
Turkmen salt Extra
Production Technology of table salt Extra – the product meeting high standards of food industry, has been developed. Refined salt is made using special technological methods of material washing in distilled water. It allows removing additives from the brine and to provide 100 percent content of the main product – NaCl sodium chloride. Due to deep level of purification of the brine, content of additional components in table salt is reduced by 50 – 70 times compared to the original content.
Mineral absorbing ammonia
Water steam, which is used for conversion of methane during ammonia production at Maryazot Plant, is purified with zeolite now. Scientists of the Institute of Chemistry proposed using the ability of mineral to absorb ammonia, which is contained in water steam. It will allow bringing purified steam back to production process, reducing energy cost as well as minimizing harmful environmental impact.
