SOCAR launches production of nanoparticles

Azerbaijani State Oil Company SOCAR has launched production of nanoparticles, the company's press service reported.

The equipment necessary for the production of nanoparticles was developed in partnership with Russia's company 'Rostovye tekhnologii'.

The technological process takes place without the use of harmful chemicals and with minimal use of inert gas. The produced nanoparticles will be used to make nanosystems that will help improve the efficiency of drilling, mining and other industrial processes.
