Project summary

The aim of the project is the development of energy saving and ecologically pure catalytic technology burning of gaseous hydrocarbon fuel for decentralized heating of industrial and living premises, hothouses, farms, for using of the resulting CO2 to generate controllable atmosphere by composition in fruit and vegetable storehouses and for CO2 feeding of plants.

The distinctive features of proposed catalytic techniques are ecological purity and high efficiency of fuel combustion.

The effectiveness of proposed methods depends both on design of generators and on use of optimal catalysts in the process. Introduction of this technology in the Republic of Kazakhstan will allow to increase the efficiency of the fuel combustion process, to reduce the fuel consumption, to prevent the pollution of the air with unburnt combustibles due to complete of the fuel and to use efficiently a heat and a combustion products for heating of hothouses and other premises, for raising yield of vegetables and fruits at hothouse farms and during storing.

The potential foreign collaboration implies joint fundamental research at the region of saturated hydrocarbons-oxygen interaction on oxide catalysts, physical-chemical study of the state of active components in the catalyst, consultation about the choice of a block porous carrier and design of thermogenerator.
