This idea was advanced in a number of reports, including by Vladimir Baskov from the Russian Power Engineering Agency and Stepan Dudarev, coordinator of the Bioenergetics technological platform from the National Research Center "Kurchatov Institute". The latter noted that search for new sources of biomass for production of fuel and energy is ca ... Читать далее
