Russian Scientists Produced Beryllium for the First Time

Scientists from the Tomsk Polytechnical University, together with a chemical plant of the Russian Rosatom company, have produced the first beryllium specimen in the country, the university's vice-chancellor told the press on Friday.

      "We have produced the first bar of the first beryllium specimen in Russia. This year we are planning to enhance the technology and make the production cheaper," Alexander Dyachenko from Russia's Tomsk Polytechnical University said.

      The specimen weighs around 100 grams. Rosatom announced its appearance at the end on 2014. Specialists currently mind on the beryllium's further production. According to Dyachenko, industrial extraction of beryllium in Russia could start as early as 2020.

      Beryllium is a relatively rare element commonly used in the production of aircraft components, missiles, spacecraft and satellites. Russia has become the fourth country in the world with a sussessful experience of beryllium's production, after the United States, China and Kazakhstan.
