The Board of Directors of Rosnano, a government-owned company set up to commercialize developments in nanotechnology, approved the establishment of a fund for investments in new projects on the technological platform of Nikokhim.
This is what the head of Rosnano, Anatoly Chubais, told reporters on Monday. He reminded that Rosnano jointly with Nikohim built in Volgograd a plant producing caustic soda.
“The project is very successful: the plant is built, production is established, we have earned money for Rosnano”, - the top manager said.
According to him, after that, the partners decided to go further. “Having a real partner, we decided to create together the more powerful and complex project. Nikohim has a very large-scale chemical technological platform, inherited from from the Soviet era. A large part of it is outdated in terms of equipment, but there is a very good infrastructure, what is crucial for chemistry”, - Chubais stressed.
He added that Rosnano set up a fund, which objective would be to invest in new projects in this area.
