Summary
Institute of Nature Management offers consumers peat-based adsorbents for liquidation of emergency oil spills on water and reclamation of oil-contaminated soils under a manufacturing agreement and is looking for partners to conclude a distribution services agreement and a joint venture agreement.
Description
Institute for Nature Management of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus has developed the scientific basis for obtaining sorption materials based on peat for the elimination of emergency oil spills on water and the reclamation of oil-contaminated soils; absorption of some gaseous components polluting the atmospheric air; environmental use of the developed materials and devices.

Oil-absorbing materials based on peat have:
* oil capacity for crude oil 3..5 g/g;
* buoyancy in the oil-saturated state from 2 to 10 days;
* ease of application and collection. The application and collection of the sorbent can be carried out manually using auxiliary mechanical devices, or using special devices;
* biospheric compatibility. The production and use of sorbents, as well as the disposal of waste materials, do not lead to re-contamination of environmental objects.

Air purification is carried out in cassette filters filled with granulated peat sorbent. The dimensions and weight of the filter are set depending on the specific production conditions and the level of contamination. Technical characteristics of the filter device:
* degree of purification 0.7..0.8;
* reduction of energy costs compared to traditional cleaning methods up to 70..80%.
Advantages and Innovations
The spent sorption material can be used as a highly effective organic fertilizer.

Additional comments
The Institute of Nature Management is one of the oldest institutes of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, carrying out research in the field of Earth sciences. The activities of the Institute are aimed at solving the problems of rational nature management and environmental protection together with international organizations.

The Institute carries out research in the following areas:
- development of scientific bases of nature management and environmental protection;
- assessment, forecasting and optimization of anthropogenic impacts on natural complexes;
- scientific justification for the creation of resource-saving technologies for the extraction, processing and use of solid fossil fuels;
- study of the formation conditions and assessment of the state of fresh drinking and mineral waters;
- study of the geodynamics of the earth's crust and modern geological processes on the territory of Belarus;
- geoecological substantiation of the design and placement of especially critical structures and environmentally hazardous facilities (nuclear power plants, hydroelectric power plants, underground gas storage facilities, high-toxic waste disposal sites, etc.);
- diagnostics of the state of the natural environment based on the use of modern aerospace, ground, telecommunications and information-measuring tools;
- study of the global and regional climate and its changes under the influence of natural and anthropogenic factors; forecasting climate change and its consequences.

The Institute participates in the scientific support of 6 international conventions:
- Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution;
- Ramsar Convention on Wetlands;
- UN Framework Convention on Climate Change;
- Stockholm Convention on POPs;
- UN Convention to Combat Desertification/Land Degradation;
- Convention on Biological Diversity.

The Institute has scientific contacts with organizations in Russia, Ukraine, Poland, China, the Baltic countries, Armenia, Vietnam.
