Inter-State Educational Institution of Higher Education ‘Belarusian-Russian University’ was awarded a Certificate for active participation in the presentation of scientific and technical achievements in the National Exposition of the Republic of Belarus at the International Trade Fair Agrofood, held from March 26th to 28th in Lagos, the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
The university presented the project ‘Phytoremediation Technologies for Soils Affected by Technogenic Pollution” developed by A.V. Shchur, Head of the Department of Occupational Health and Safety, Doctor of Biological Sciences, an associate professor, and V.P. Valko, the scientific consultant of the Department of Occupational Health and Safety, Ph.D in Agricultural Sciences, an associate professor.
The technologies help restore sandy and loam soils, which are subject to erosion and polluted with oil products and other ecotoxicants, and get products which meet non-contamination standards in radioactively contaminated areas. Restoration of sandy and loam soils and their protection against erosion are provided due to energy-saving no-till treatments and the application of biologically active substances and microbiological matter with specially selected vegetation communities.
