TOMSK, October 1. /TASS/. Russia may start industrial production of beryllium in 2020, Alexander Dyachenko, pro-rector for research at Tomsk Polytechnic University, which is now working on the metal’s production technology, told PRIME Wednesday.
“We will receive the first pilot batch of the metal this year, while by 2020 we plan to launch beryllium production,” Dyachenko said.
Beryllium is used in nuclear and aerospace industries, and in the production of telecommunication equipment.
Currently, the metal is only produced by China, the US and Kazakhstan, with joint output standing at slightly over 300 tons, he said.
The Tomsk university is working together with the Siberian Chemical Plant, a unit of nuclear power corporation Rosatom, where the future production might be carried out.
