TOMSK, Sep 8 – RIA Tomsk. The Cross-industrial Center for Joint Technological Development, created in the Tomsk region with participation of large industrial holdings, including SIBUR, is developing rapidly degradable plastics; the technology will be of great importance for the environment, the governor Sergei Zhvachkin said on Sunday on the Russia-24 television channel.

It was previously reported that in the spring of 2019, SIBUR became a member of the supervisory board of the Cross-Industrial Center for Joint Technological Developments created in the Tomsk region.

"Together with SIBUR, we created the Cross-Industrial Center ... Today, this center, together with our Tomsk science, is developing rapidly degradable plastics. Can you imagine what this means for the world? It's not like bottles that have been lying along roads and rivers and have been decaying for centuries, but plastic, primarily food plastic, which will decompose much faster", - the governor said.

It was also previously reported that the supervisory board of the Cross-Industrial Center of the Tomsk Region includes PJSC Gazprom Neft, which is interested in developing of new methods for the search and production of hard-to-recover hydrocarbon reserves. A potential customer of technologies at the Cross-Industrial Center is Rosatom.
