By Andrey Pimenov
The Belarusian National Technical University is joining the Belarusian-Chinese Centre for Scientific Research in the Sphere of Road Building, and the Chinese company Gaoyuan in the project.
Marina Tsives, who heads the Belarusian Centre for Scientific-Technical Co-operation with Chinese Regions and the Polytechnic Park of the Belarusian National Technical University, tells us, “We’ll develop modern equipment and materials to allow the deep resurfacing of old asphalt paving, with the results used in Belarus and China.”
The project is included in the programme for scientific and technical co-operation between Belarus and China for 2013-2014, and will be carried out in accordance with an agreement on joint activity between Gaoyuan and the Belarusian National Technical University.
Over the next two years, the Belarusian National Technical University and the Polytechnic Park will be working with Chinese colleagues to implement a series of new joint projects, including resource-saving technology for mechanical engineering and automobile production.
