The historical information

     The problem scientific research laboratory of Fuel cells was created in 1962 accordingly to the Decree № 67 of ministerial Council Ukraine Republic of January 20. The Founder of Laboratory - doctor of technical sciences, professor Davtjan O. Fundamental researches of electrochemical processes in the Fuel cells are executed and the first in the USSR middle-temperature hydrogen-oxygen electrochemical current generator was created under his management. Researches of the new electrocatalysts on the base of oxides of transitive and rare-earth metals were begun. Researches in this direction were continued in 1968 under the direction of professor Ksengek O. Doctor of technical sciences, professor Presnov V. A. has become the scientific chief of laboratory in 1969. New generations of chemical sources of a current were created. Science 1974, the heads of laboratory in different period were Ph.D. Teterin G., D. Trunov A., Ph.D. Kravchenko S., Ph.D. Makordey F., which were executed in the frameworks of a state-budget and cost-accounting themes.

     A new scientific directions connected with the problems of ecology, metallurgy, fuel and energy complex of Ukraine  is actively and successfully developed in laboratory the last 10 years. These studies  are conducted under the guidance of  Ph.D. Irina Blayda, which led the lab in 2010. 11 candidate and 4 doctor's dissertations were protected by results of researches of laboratory.

Research scope includes following fundamental and applied problems

  • ·         Extraction of rare and non-ferrous metals from industrial products and  wastes of non-ferrous metallurgy and energetic by tradition  chemical and modern microbiological methods
