Researchers from the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus and their counterparts from India have developed a new technology for lower cost production of carbon nanotubes. The researchers have used the technology in a pilot plant with the capacity to produce 10 grams of carbon nanotubes per hour. The researchers from the two countries are also involved in a joint research project on the production of heat-conducive substrates based on aluminum nitrate exported from India to Belarus. The state committee for science and technology of Belarus has reported that the new technology also reduces the main cost of these substrates by 10 to 12 percent, does not produce hazardous waste, and is environmentally-friendly. According to the state committee, Belarus and India have been involved in seven joint research projects between 2005 and 2007 to develop new technologies, materials, and equipment and have plans to continue bi-lateral science and technology cooperation.
