Lukashenko wants to see more domestic innovations in Belarusian economy

Lukashenko wants to see more domestic innovations in Belarusian economy

MINSK, 25 January (BelTA) – The government and the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus should step up efforts to make sure more innovative solutions of Belarusian scientists are assimilated in the economy, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said as he talked to scientists after a ceremony to present Doctor of Sciences diplomas and Professor certificates in Minsk on 25 January, BelTA has learned.

The meeting discussed the domestic achievements in the field of foundry. Doctor of Technical Sciences, Associate Professor, Head of the Machines and Foundry Technology Department at Belarusian National Technical University Sergei Rovin briefed the president on the state of affairs in this sector. The scientist was awarded the doctor academic degree for conceptual development of a new research area in dispersed metal waste recycling. Simply put, the work is dedicated to resource conservation, and this task is relevant for all countries with advanced machine engineering. The new technology allows recycling waste of alloys of non-ferrous and ferrous metals. For Belarus this means the annual recycling of up to 200,000 tonnes of iron and steel. The profitability of production workshops even with small processing volumes will make up not less than 50% with the payback period less than a year.

Alexander Lukashenko got interested in this development and asked Vladimir Gusakov how these innovations are being assimilated. He recalled that the NASB has the right to directly interact with the government on relevant issues. If there is no understanding, the government members in charge of this matter will have to defend their point of view at the level of the head of state. “But I do not think that a scientist will offer something that is impossible to implement or that is bad for the economy,” he said.
