Faculty of chemical technology and biotechnology

Grad­u­ates of the Fac­ul­ty are spe­cial­ists in the field of tech­nol­o­gy of deep pro­cess­ing of plant bio­mass. They work at enter­pris­es of chem­i­cal, food indus­tries and health safe­ty, biotech­nol­o­gy and micro­bi­o­log­i­cal pro­duc­tions, in research and design institutions.

An exam­ple of suc­cess­ful col­lab­o­ra­tion of the Fac­ul­ty with oth­er coun­tries is a joint project of Rus­sia and Aus­tralia Solo­gran Inter­na­tion­al on pro­duc­tion of bioac­tive sub­stances that are unri­valled in the world.

Fields of training


Pro­fes­sion­al activ­i­ties of ecol­o­gists con­cern­ing for­est com­plex include orga­ni­za­tion and man­age­ment of envi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion work at enter­pris­es, cre­ation of effi­cient waste-free for­est exploita­tion sys­tems, pro­duce cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for the pur­pose of eco­log­i­cal safe­ty of eco­nom­ics, reduc­ing risk of anthro­pogenic envi­ron­men­tal effects, and devel­op­ment, exploita­tion and improv­ing of nature con­ser­va­tion tech­nolo­gies and equipment.


Grad­u­ates of the Depart­ment of Pulp-and-Paper Pro­duc­tion Tech­nol­o­gy are spe­cial­ists on chem­i­cal wood pro­cess­ing, paper and car­ton pro­duc­tion, and indus­tri­al ecol­o­gy, as well as refin­ing and recu­per­a­tion of indus­tri­al emissions.

Grad­u­ates of the Depart­ment of Biotech­nol­o­gy mas­tered a whole com­plex of micro­bi­o­log­i­cal, chem­i­cal and biotech­no­log­i­cal dis­ci­plines and suc­cess­ful­ly work at any biotech­no­log­i­cal enter­pris­es: in hydrol­y­sis, food, cos­met­ic and oth­er branch­es of industry.

The Depart­ment of For­est Chem­i­cal Pro­duce, Wood Chem­istry and Phys­i­cal Chem­istry trains spe­cial­ists who become mul­ti­func­tion­al work­ers for enter­pris­es of for­est chem­istry and allied indus­tries. The staff of the Depart­ment devel­op eco­log­i­cal­ly clean and resource-sav­ing tech­nolo­gies of wood waste pro­cess­ing with extrac­tion of bio­log­i­cal­ly active sub­stances, such as med­ical prod­ucts, enzymes, vit­a­mins, nat­ur­al pig­ments used in med­i­cine, per­fume man­u­fac­tur­ing, and cosmetology.

Grad­u­ates of the Depart­ment of Wood Com­pos­ite Mate­ri­als work in the field of wood par­ti­cle and fiber board pro­duc­tion, wood and paper lam­i­nat­ed plas­tics pro­duc­tion, in fur­ni­ture firms and at the plants of arti­fi­cial resins and plastics.
