MINSK, 18 August (BelTA) – There are plans to make flexible solar cells in Belarus, BelTA learned from Sergei Chizhik, First Deputy Chairman of the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, on 18 August.
According to the source, the Isovac enterprise in Belarus has started producing solar cells. “I certainly wish we could master the production of solar cells on a flexible substrate like panels on a polymeric base. It would expand the range of applications — any mats, a cover for a car, and so on,” said Sergei Chizhik.
Developing nanotechnologies, Belarus has secured considerable progress in creating new electric transport products, water filters, and nano fertilizers. For instance, the Nanoplant fertilizers are now sold in Baltic Sea countries and are about to be sold in Scandinavia. Their high quality has been confirmed by a German lab.
Apart from that, Belarusian scientists have not scrapped their plans to develop additive 3D printing technologies. “This area is going to develop very fast. Printing with cells and biological ink also has a bright future as far as healthcare is concerned. I think we will be able to talk about some accomplishments next year,” concluded Sergei Chizhik.More about Society
