Project summary

A rational use of natural resources, creation of wasteless technologies and productions are actual tasks of economic development of different countries of the world.

Kazakhstan has a practically unclaimed carbon-mineral raw material – shungit rocks called so by the name of the contained in them carbon mineral – shungit. Shungit rocks form natural dumps and seams after mining and dressing polymetallic ores, the resources of which are sufficient for using them in production quantities. The content of shungit in seams and dumps varies from a few percent up to 25-30 %, in some places it exceeds 30 %. Quartzite and aluminosilicates form its mineral part.

Fundamental and reconnoitering investigations of shungit rocks as well as quantitative estimation of the resources allow to consider them to be a perspective carbon-mineral raw material for a wide range of fields of practical (industrial) use.

This project proposes to carry out applied works with the aim to develop technologies of production of highly effective sorbents and composition materials on the base of carbon containing material with different degrees of concentration.


The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) is an intergovernmental organization connecting scientists from Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia with their peers and research organizations in the EU, Japan, Republic of Korea, Norway and the United States.


ISTC facilitates international science projects and assists the global scientific and business community to source and engage with CIS and Georgian institutes that develop or possess an excellence of scientific know-how.
