Project summary

The aim of the project is to make new composite materials on the basis of basalt, also to produce knots and ad details from these materials and to test it on different kinds of fuel and hydrogen.

Nowadays the details of MIB are mainly made of metals and their alloy. In order to improve the parameters of MIB, but due to the incompatibility of the used materials it couldn’t find the practical usage.

The alteration of MIB’s knots on the basis of basalt with new composite materials, the psychical-chemical characteristics of which is much better comparing with the above-mentioned materials, gives us the reason of improving the MIB parameters.

The specialists participating in the project, who have been working on the military and space thematics, have great experience in producing the above-mentioned materials and also in on its basis implementing the already made constructions in military and space technique.

The usage of composite material in motors of inner burning having being produced on the basis of basalt, will give us the opportunity of using the hydrogen as a fuel together with traditional ones. This will give us the great economical and ecological effect.

The project meets the international scientific-technical demands, due to the appearing of additional working places during its implementation period and the scientists and the specialists participating in this will have a possibility of carrying out their scientific-research business and working out it for peaceful aims.

The experience of collaborators in mentioned thematics will be used.

The methodology of carrying out the project means the gradual change of MIB’s constituents with the details made of new composite materials and learning the efficiency of the motor’s function in different regimes.

The duration of project fulfillment is planned to be 36 months (12 quarters).


The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) is an intergovernmental organization connecting scientists from Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia with their peers and research organizations in the EU, Japan, Republic of Korea, Norway and the United States.


ISTC facilitates international science projects and assists the global scientific and business community to source and engage with CIS and Georgian institutes that develop or possess an excellence of scientific know-how.
