“The program “Green chemistry” we began to do in 2010, last year was the first award to six young scientists. The focus of the project is primarily research in the field of deep processing of waste. Tomorrow will reward the second generation of scientists,” said Guriev.
St. PETERSBURG, December 14./strong>. The award ceremony of UNESCO, International Union of pure and applied chemistry and the Russian company “FosAgro” to young scientists from six countries for research in the field of environmental protection will be held December 14 in St. Petersburg, said CEO Andrey Guryev.
“The program “Green chemistry” we began to do in 2010, last year was the first award to six young scientists. The focus of the project is primarily research in the field of deep processing of waste. Tomorrow will reward the second generation of scientists. The program’s budget is $ 1.4 million. It involves young scientists from your world,” said Guriev.
According to him, the company is proud to provide its assistance in the form of grants. “The “Green chemistry” explains how to use the best technologies on the production, improving the environmental component, improving the ecology of our planet, to the development of business with sustainable human development”, added the CEO.

According to UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova, with PhosAgro, UNESCO has established cooperation in international year of chemistry. “We have started good cooperation and continue work in the area of scholarships for developing countries and the development of chemistry,” said Bokova.
The project “Green chemistry” for the first time in the history of UNESCO and the whole UN system is implemented on the basis of extra-budgetary funds of the Russian company. PhosAgro has allocated 1.4 million U.S. dollars to Finance the project for five years. The project is aimed at addressing global challenges of sustainable development.
