The Federation Council recommended that the Ministry of Regional Development include a "basaltic" TOP in the list of priority

The Federation Council Committee on Federal Structure, Regional Policy, Local Self-Government and Northern Affairs recommended the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Federation to include the Basalt - New Technologies ASEZ in the list of top-priority ASEZs formed in the Far East, with the start of implementation in 2015. The corresponding appeal will be formed on the basis of the minutes of the committee meeting on December 16.

The meeting was chaired by Senator Dmitry Azarov. The report on the creation of TOP "Basalt-new technologies" in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) was announced by the deputy chairman of the committee Alexander Akimov. In the discussion of the issue, the member of the Federation Council Nikolai Ryzhkov actively participated. In particular, he noted that the technology of production of basalt-composite materials is the achievement of Soviet engineers and designers of the military-industrial complex. "It is noteworthy that in the Far East there is an initiative to introduce a unique Russian know-how, it must be supported, it is worth fighting for," Nikolai Ryzhkov said.

As a result of the discussion, the committee unanimously supported the initiative to create a high-tech industry segment for the production of basalt-composite materials in the format of the territory of advanced development. Relevant recommendations on the inclusion of the Basalt-New Technologies project in the list of priority TORs will be sent on behalf of the committee to the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia and the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia.

The application for the creation of the TOP "Basalt - New Technologies" was formed by the Government of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) on the basis of the existing experience in the production of basalt-composite materials from local raw materials. The republic already has an innovative enterprise that uses unique domestic technologies for the production of high-quality building materials based on basalt fiber. Intensive development of the enterprise will allow not only to provide the Far Eastern construction with innovative products, but also to establish large-scale export to the countries of the Asia-Pacific region.

At the same time, member of the Federation Council, ex-President of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) Vyacheslav Shtyrov, supporting in a letter to the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Government Yury Trutnev (a copy is available to EastRussia), the issue of including "Basalt-New Technologies" among the top priorities, draws attention to the fact that "new materials have the potential to contain price growth, since, being a product of local production, they are called upon to replace a significant amount of expensive technical products imported from afar."

"Only in the conditions of the TOP it is possible to start a radical and large-scale introduction of effective new materials in the sphere of civil and road construction, housing and utilities, power engineering and bridge construction in the Far East," Vyacheslav Shtyrov said in support of the Taura Basalt-New Technologies.
