Yakut basalt is one of the priority projects in the Far Eastern Federal District

A regular meeting of the Presidium of the Council for Economic Modernization and Innovative Development of Russia took place in the Gorki residence in Moscow. This time it was devoted to the application of innovative technologies in construction. The event was chaired by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. Opening the meeting, he, in particular, noted the need "to update the strategy for the development of the building materials industry (it was adopted in 2011), perhaps to more accurately describe the mechanisms that stimulate the use of innovative technologies." Discussing the problems of the industry, the Prime Minister touched upon the main aspects, in his opinion, hindering development, and identified the Ministry of Construction, Housing and Communal Services of Russia as the key coordinator of the process.

One of the clearest examples of innovative approach to construction was the experience Yakut company TBM... General Director Yegor Zhirkov represented her at the meeting. The company is known for producing building materials based on basalt fiber for Yakutia and the Far East. Such products, and these are rebar, basalt-plastic nets and basalt concrete structures, are especially applicable in the Far East market as durable and highly resistant to sudden temperature changes. The company was originally founded with the support of RUSNANO, at the beginning of this year the main block of shares was bought by OJSC Republican Investment Company.

Egor Zhirkov proposed to attach importance to the creation of special territories of advanced economic development based on the enterprises of the Far East, engaged in the production of basalt fiber and basal composite materials, building structures and products from them. Taking into account the real experience of the company and the already assembled base of implemented projects in this area, the TBM initiative found support at a meeting of the presidium of the Council on the modernization of the economy and innovative development of Russia.
