Day 1 :
JSC “The Research Institute for Fertilizers and Insecto-Fungicides Named After Professor Y. Samoilov” (JSC “NIUIF”), Russia
Time : 10:00-10:40
Andrey Norov was born on 26 April 1957 in Russia (USSR). Upon graduating from Mendeleev’s University of Chemical Technology in Russia, for over 25 years Mr. Norov had been working at Mineral Fertilizers Plants. Since April 2007 he has been working for JSC “NIUIF”, at the present moment his job title is Industrial Technology Director. Mr. Norov has got Ph.D. in Engineering Science. He is an Honorable Chemist of the Russian Federation, he also has got governmental and industry-related awards. Mr. Norov is an author of 73 research articles and publications and 27 patents in the field of phosphorus-containing fertilizers technology. Mr. Norov took part as a speaker in 21 international conferences and symposiums.
JSC "The Research Institute for Fertilizers and Insectofungicides named after Professor Y. Samoilov”(JSC“NIUIF”), the oldest (founded in September 1919) industry-oriented institute in Russia, has developed a number of innovative technologies in recent years. These technologies allow to recycle production wastes, increase the efficiency of natural resources consumption and reduce the negative impact on the environment. The technologies include, in particular:
1. An innovative, resource-saving process of joint processing of waste production of wet phosphoric acid (WPA) - phosphogypsum and fluorosilicic acid (FSA) into ammonium sulfate with simultaneous neutralization of fluoride compounds without using lime. This technology is currently being implemented at one of the large Russian plants.
2. Improved WPA technology by dihydrate-hemihydrate method in relation to various types of phosphate raw materials. This technology makes it possible to consume natural phosphate raw materials more effectively and fully, and to process production waste - phosphogypsum into gypsum binders and cement due to a lower content of impurities in it. Implementation of this technology in a number of Russian and foreign plants is under consideration now.
3. Innovative, no-analogue technology of slow-release granular PK-, PKS-, NPKS-fertilizers. This technology allows to process a number of wastes and by-products: conversion chalk, phosphogypsum, sludge from sodium tripolyphosphate production, etc. The technology was successfully implemented in 2014 at one of the Russian plants – JSC Metakhim (Volkhov, Leningrad Region).
All listed environmental technologies are protected by Russian and Eurasian patents.
JSC “NIUIF” continues to work on compound use of natural resources and reducing the environmental impact.

Time : 10:30-11:00
Ge Wang received her Ph.D. in Chemistry from the Michigan Technological University in 2002. Currently she is a professor and PhD supervisor in the School of Material Science and Engineering at the University of Science and Technology Beijing. In 2012, she became a special chair professor endowed by the Chang Jiang Scholars Program of the Ministry of Education. Her research interests focus on creating complex materials structures with nanoscale precision using physical or chemical approaches, and studying the functionalities in energy, catalysis, biomedicine and environment applications, etc.
As a kind of newly emerged functional inorganic-organic hybrid material，Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have attracted increasing attention due to their tunable open metal centers, functional organic linkers, and active guest species in their pores. MOFs offer a new window for fine tuning various structure–property relationships to design MOFs-based catalysts with desirable performance. Recently, in order to obtain catalysts with excellent catalytic performance, good selectivity, high cyclic stability and convenient recyclability, we prepared a series of novel catalysts by designing and tailoring the composition and structure of MOFs, including immobilizing active guest species in the pores of MOFs, modifying the functional groups using a post-synthetic strategy, integrating MOFs with other functional materials or preparing 2D ultrathin MOFs, etc. These MOFs-based catalysts showed high efficiency for catalyzing the aerobic oxidation of alcohols and benzylic C−H bonds, oxygen evolution reaction (OER), etc. Meanwhile, the design concept and structure control of these novel MOFs-based catalysts are also highlighted
