Rusnano may build Tatarstan site to make nanotubes for global markets

6 Feb '15
Rusnano, Russia’s nanotech giant, is considering building in Tatarstan, in the mid-Volga area, the world’s first and only production site to manufacture carbon nanotubes to meet the needs of both the domestic and global markets, Tatar-inform.ru reported.

“We… believe that it is in Tatarstan that the largest carbon nanotube industrial cluster can be established. The scientific center would be in Novosibirsk [in Siberia] but industrial should be in Tatarstan,” said Anatoly Chubais, the president of Rusnano.

Carbon nanotubes provide a universal additive for wide applications, improving the properties of composites, rubbers, plastics, varnishes, storage batteries, construction materials, automotive tires and other products.

“We suggest that here in Tatarstan we build a facility with a capacity of up to 250 tons,” Mr. Chubais said.

According to him, the global market for carbon nanotubes was about 3-to-4 tons last year.
