Nanofilm increasing the shelf life of products
Without innovation there is no export
"No country can not be innovative if it is not export-oriented"? said Director of Innovation Development, Head of the Analytical Division of JSC "RUSNANO" Yuri Udaltsov On August 28 held a round table in Moscow "Innovation — who will win (and lose) the status of the race for the world's new leaders". Among the projects RUSNANO having unconditional export potential, it is possible to allocate the production of new polymers and composites.
Nanofilm protects the products up to 5 years
Kazan plant "Danafleks" plans to increase the share of its exports from the current 4 to 20-30% in the next 5-7 years, said the president of "Danafeleks" Ayrat Bashir. The plans of the plant output is not only the markets of Belarus and Kazakhstan, but also on the European markets.

Polymer composite packaging with nanomodifikatorov protects food or household from the action of oxygen and moisture, prolongs shelf life, said RUSNANO Managing Director Alexander Kondrashov. If desired, the products are packed in nanofilms, can be reheated in the microwave as part of the package does not include aluminum.
The total budget of the first Russian project to produce high barrier plastic film in Kazan is 2450 million. RUSNANO is 1.2 billion rubles in the form of a contribution to the charter capital of the project company. Start of the first production took place in November 2011. In 2012, the volume of sales, according to experts, will be 3.6 billion, and by 2015 it will exceed 6 billion.
Export potential and film CJSC "Uralplastik" Yekaterinburg. In 2009 there began the construction of a modern enterprise for the production of packaging, modified nanocomposites, and in 2011 launched a workshop for producing them.
- plant "Uralplastic — H" opened in October 2011
The total budget of the project — 2,550 million rubles, his investors were RUSNANO and JSC "Uralplastic." RUSNANO — 826 million rubles (576 million rubles entered in the share capital of the project company, 250 million rubles was granted in the form of a loan). New production capacity — 1,800 tons of flexible packaging in a month, equal to about 650 million packages of finished products.
Produced by the project packaging is designed to store dairy products, meat and fish products, baby food, and more for a variety of food and nonfood products. In such a package can be stored ready-made meals to 5 years without the use of preservatives, while the traditional barrier packaging with a layer of foil provides a shelf life of 6 to 24 months.
Furthermore, traditional combination packs containing in its structure several materials, sometimes hardly recyclable due to the complexity and high cost of recycling. Nanofilm can be completely recycled. Today, the entire high-barrier plastic packaging, which has the necessary characteristics for gas and vapor permeability to maintain the freshness of the product, the necessary physical, mechanical and optical properties are imported into Russia from Europe. The use of new technology will make the domestic high-barrier packaging, which by its characteristics is comparable to, and in some even better than their foreign counterparts.
PET bottles are recycled into fibers nanomodified
The report on the development of Industry and Trade of chemical production in 2011 are among the few specially selected companies mentioned Vladimirskoye Ltd. "Vladpoliteks", manufacturer of polyester fiber. The company is now in cooperation with RUSNANO project implements a modified release of PET fiber. At the core of the technical process, says Alexander Kondrashov, is the effect of crazing, the essence of which is that if the PET fiber stretch in a bath of liquid, then it cracks? "Crazes" that grow in the direction perpendicular to the axis of tension. Crazes continuously filled with a liquid, in which stretching occurs, such as an antibacterial or refractory composition. As a result, the output is modified fiber.
Today, the company produces non-combustible PET fiber. It is made into mats for insulation and sound insulation used in construction and engineering. In the long term, "Vladpoliteks" will the means of first aid? bactericidal bandages and dressings. The total cost of the project? 899 million rubles from RUSNANO is 102 million rubles. Production is scheduled to start in December 2012.
An important role is also played by the environmental component: PET fibers can be made from recycled PET material (plastic bottles, packaging). The resulting materials are not flammable, environmentally safe, serve more than 50 years.
Nanocomposites strengthen and protect
RUSNANO with the Holding Company "Composite" in Moscow at the plant site AZLK starts a new large-scale project. By 2018 it is planned to produce up to 4,500 tons and nano-modified nano-filled composite materials, semi-finished products (prepregs) based carbon fibers.
"Light and durable carbon composites, which are obtained from the prepreg demand in the automobile and shipbuilding, wind power, especially in the aviation industry"? says Alexander Kondrashov.
In Russia used mainly imported polymer composite materials (PCM). The consumption of RMB per capita, we are lagging behind the United States nearly 20 times. RUSNANO contributed to the authorized capital of the project company 192 million rubles, and provided a loan in the amount of 3.06 billion rubles for a period of 10 years.
In October last year, JSC "RUSNANO" and the company "Galen" (Cheboksary) signed an investment agreement for the project of creating the production of composite nanostructured polymer based on basalt fiber. The total budget of the project will exceed 500 million rubles, the share of "RUSNANO" — 200 million rubles. The main products of "Galen" will be composite rebar and products based on its modification for use in the housing and utilities sector and the construction industry, as well as composite lighting poles and electric poles used in urban infrastructure and power grid sectors.
"Company" Galen "has experience in creating unique technological solutions? Its fittings used in the construction of a single-span bridge in Northern Ireland, and flexible communication?, In an innovative project" Passive house "in England"? said Alexander Kondrashov.
The effect of the application of coatings CJSC "Plakart", according to experts, will make $ 5 millio
n a year. An example of the effective use of coatings showed oil. So Submersible (2 mm) pumps for the oil company TNK-BP, intended to withdraw due to corrosion coatings were processed JSC "Plakart" and then successfully completed field and laboratory tests. The company's technology "Plakart" allows you to create unique anti-corrosion, wear-resistant and heat-resistant nano-coating, applied methods of thermal spraying, as well as laser and plasma welding.
The total investment in the creation of a network of RUSNANO production centers "Plakart" — 3.2 billion rubles, including co-financing of $ 1.2 billion.
The service life of large-diameter pipes, protected by polymer composites Bryansk plant "Metaclay", increase up to 100 years, says Alexander Kondrashov. Launched in November last year, the plant will produce masterbatches nanomodifikatorov for the most common plastics (polyethylene, propylene rubber). Plastics from Bryansk modifiers have new properties, such as resistance to tearing, heat resistance, fire safety, moisture and gas barrier. Produced by the purified nano-modified montmorillonite is also used in the petroleum industry for purification and petroleum cracking, synthesis polymers, in the food industry as an adsorbent of impurities pharmacological and pharmaceutical industry and for the manufacture of various construction materials.
RUSNANO Managing Director Alexander Kondrashov said that to enter the international market of high technologies to stimulate the production of innovative products based on the latest achievements of Russian scientific centers.
