PhosAgro opened a new laboratory at Ivanovo State University
With the support of PhosAgro, a new laboratory has been created at Ivanovo State University of Chemistry and Technology. Its solemn opening took place with the participation of the principal of the university Natalya Gordina and the director of personnel and social policy of the Apatit enterprise (part of PhosAgro) Margarita Kotlyarova.
The laboratory will allow students to study the technological processes of the modern production of mineral fertilizers. It was equipped with devices for analyzing the quality of raw materials, installations for obtaining products at different stages, as well as computers that can be used to control processes. PhosAgro allocated about 2.9 million rubles (over $46 thousand) for the creation of the laboratory.
“We are grateful to one of our most reliable partners for effective cooperation in personnel training. We thank PhosAgro for promoting the popularization of technological and engineering education in the country,” said Natalya Gordina.
“Over 10 years, about 400 graduates of the university have been employed in the company. Many hold high positions – brilliant engineers, qualified chemical specialists who have all the necessary competencies to work in a fast-growing company,” commented Margarita Kotlyarova. “We continue to cooperate with the university in many areas: career guidance, retraining of personnel, and development of the material and technical base. And this work is bearing fruit.”
In February 2022, PhosAgro opened the first specialized chemical laboratory at the university. Here, students use not only modern equipment but also conduct research using methods that are applied in production. Students of Ivanovo State University of Chemistry and Technology will already be familiar with the equipment and technologies of PhosAgro enterprises during employment. The company spent 2.3 million rubles (over $36.5 thousand) to equip this laboratory.
