The Student From Tomsk Found a Way To Turn CHPP Waste Into Water And Salt

The graduate student of Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) Kirill Afanasyev designed the project of the assembly that recycles the waste of heating power plants (CHPP) into sodium salt, water, and raw materials for glass manufacturing. He explained that all assemblies he used are based on thermal actions, as in this case they are more effective than chemical actions. After processing CHPP waste is divided into the product water which can be re-used, sodium chloride (salt) and sodium sulfate required in the manufacturing of glass. Such treatment plants will significantly reduce the negative impact of CHPP on the environment. The acquisition of these will cost more than currently used methods, but they will pay for themselves in less than three years.


The design of the young scientist won the award "Sustainable Future of Russia" of the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration in the beginning of 2013.
