Young scientist from Bashkortostan is winner of Russian stage of James Dyson Award


UFA, 12 August 2015. /Bashinform News Agency, Elmira Sabirova/. A graduate of the Chemistry Faculty of Bashkir State University Nikolay Patrushev is the winner of the Russian stage of the international competition James Dyson Award 2015 in the field of industrial design and engineering design. He was awarded the first place for the project of resource efficient storage of fresh farm products to reduce the amounts of recyclable perishable goods, the press centre of Bashkir State University informs.

The Solar Cold Storage will retain low temperatures inside of it due to solar cells. According to Nikolay, Solar Cold reflects a new approach to solving the pressing problem of food storage on a large scale. Implementation of the project in practice can effectively solve this problem, as well as can impact on reducing the final cost of farm products entering the stores.

Nikolay Patrushev will compete for the main prize. The results will be announced on November 10 and on September 17 we will know whether the project of Bashkir State University’s graduate will be shortlisted for the Prize.
