TOMSK, Sep 24 – RIA Tomsk. The
project to create a carbon testing area in the Tomsk region is to be
implemented in 2022-2023; PJSC Transneft will become a project partner,
the Russian Ministry of Science and Higher Education said on Friday on
the Year of Science and Technology information portal.
reported earlier, in February 2021, the Ministry of Science and Higher
Education of the Russian Federation launched a pilot project on creation
of carbon testing areas in the regions of Russia to develop and test
carbon control technologies. Tomsk State University (TSU) together with
Institute of Monitoring of Climatic and Ecological Systems (IMCES SB
RAS), V.E. Zuev Institute of Atmospheric Optics (IAO SB RAS), Siberian
Research Institute of Agriculture and Peat (SRIAP) and Institute of
Petroleum Chemistry (IPC SB RAS) act as the operator of the project in
the Tomsk region. The testing area is planned to be created in the Ob
According to the information portal, at the
meeting of expert council on scientific support of carbon balance
control technologies development, which was held in the Russian Ministry
of Science and Higher Education under supervision of Minister Valery
Falkov, applications on creation of carbon testing areas in Tomsk and
Voronezh regions and in Bashkortostan were considered.
the Tomsk region, the project operator – TSU, IMCES SB RAS, IAO SB RAS,
IPC SB RAS, SRIAP – is uniting to create a scientific and educational
infrastructure for development and testing of technologies to control
the balance of climatically active gases. <…> PJSC Transneft will
become a partner of the testing area", – says the report.

is noted that the implementation term of the programs of the new
participants of the project on creation of carbonic testing areas in
Russia is 2022-2023.
Earlier it was also reported that the
topic of carbon cycle research is extremely topical now. In the Tomsk
region, research on the basis of the carbon testing area will allow to
trace the processes of greenhouse gas emission, to estimate their scale,
the role of the Ob floodplain in climate regulation and the saturation
of the world ocean with greenhouse gases. The TSU Kajbasovo Research
Station located near the floodplain will enable year-round research.
