Reports on power generation and wind measurements were presented yesterday, on October 10, in the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Tatarstan.

Representatives of the Kazan State Power Engineering University held a presentation on the work done in the Spassky, Kamsko-Ustinsky and Rybno-Slobodsky districts of the republic.

Experts of the KSPEU worked over the course of the year at three sites: Izmeri, Sorochyi Gory, and Krasnovidovo. Research was conducted on parameters such as wind direction and speed, turbulence intensity and wind distribution. Based on these data, wind farms are expected to be built at these sites in the future.

Following the results of their work, the experts determined the parameters of electricity generation for a ten-year period.

From October 7 to October 11, the Agroprodmash’2019 exhibition was held in Moscow. The NPF Integral+ company (from Kazan, Tatarstan) presented the most popular models of packaging equipment and its main novelties of 2019, the Inpak-Tetra packaging machine manufactured in Tatarstan, which packs tea in pyramid bags, as well as a new high-performance Inpak-Ultra machine.

The company’s stand was visited by Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia Denis Manturov, he appreciated the company’s success in implementing the federal R&D programme, according to which the company is developing unique machines for packing boxes into a biodegradable film by the envelope method.

“In today’s realities, producing a fully eco-friendly packaging is 20% more expensive than creating the usual plastic one. However, film manufacturers are working on new technologies, which will eventually result in lower costs. And soon, recycling of packaging will become less economically feasible than using a truly eco-friendly biodegradable counterpart from renewable resources”, the company noted.
