Short description of the organization (max 12 lines): The Kuban state university, wich now is one of the largest classical high schools of the South of Russia, has been formed in 1920. The basic directions of activity - educational and scientific. Researches carry out scientific groups of faculties and the various centers being structural divisions of Kuban state university. The self-supporting centre of science "Biotechnology" has been created in 1985 at faculty of genetics, microbiology and the biotechnology, wich has been generated in 1970. The scientists of the Center more than two decades conducts researches on the following basic directions: - Biotechnology of clearing and detoxication of dangerous waste products; - restoration technogenically broken ecosystems; - a microbic biodiversity; - creation and maintenance of collections of the oil-oxidizing bacteria from Azov-Black Sea region; - struggle against biodamages of industrial materials. The collective of the Center, including 5 PhD, has a plenty of publications, awards, patents.
Expertise offered ENV.2012.6.2-1 The Collective has an experience of theoretical and experimental development, and also practical (at a regional level) introductions of innovative schemes of the manipulation with dangerous oil-containing and other waste products. Schemes are based on maximum effective utilization of metabolic potential of oil-oxidizing microorganisms using of modern high technology biotechnological toolkit and an infrastructure of the industrial enterprises. The advanced techniques allow to achieve high quality of clearing and detoxication of waste products. There is an experience of secondary use of the waste products cleared by microbiological way. Use of an available scientific and technical reserve for creation of large system of norms, rules and the techniques, providing expansion of concepts ecosystem services is possible.
ENV.2012.6.2-2 One of bases of functioning of biosphere is activity of procaryota. The microbic biodiversity is the integral component of a universal biodiversity. The center "Biotechnology" has experience of the all-round analysis of a various ecosystems microbic biodiversity, including allocation, identification, an estimation of perspectivity and deposition of bacterial strains. During more than twenty years' studying of a petropolluted ecosystems biodiversity, at the Kuban state University the collection from 900 various bacterial strains - potential biological agents is selected and supported. The collection is a unique genofund for maintenance of biological activity anthropogenically broken ecosystems.
ENV.2012.6.2-4 The Center has long-term practical experience of monitoring of the sea and coastal zones, exposed to pollution by dangerous waste products for a sanitary-microbiological condition, a degree of chemical pollution (through functional groups of microflora). The scientists develops system of measures on counteraction to environmental contamination by oil and waste products of drilling at work on a shelf of sea of Azov (the grant of the Russian Federal Property Fund 06-04-96811 Rehabilitation of ecosystems, polluted with mineral oil and waste products of drilling, at carrying out of chisel works on a sea shelf). A number of innovative development of scientific group directly concerns to biotechnology of liquidation of hydrocarbonic pollution of the sea environment and a coastal sandy ground (biological products and technologies using immobilized systems).
