Professor Marcel Ya. Bickbau

Founder and Chairman

Marcel Yanovich Bickbau — physiochemist, famous scientist in materials science, author of the first discovery in physics and chemistry of silicates registered in the USSR State Register of Discoveries, #210, pHd in Chemistry, Founder and Director General of Moscow Institute of Material Science and Efficient Technologies for 26 years, Academician of Russian Academy of Natural Sciences.

M.Ya. Bickbau was the first who put into practice single-crystal synthesis and interpreted the atomic structure of lime silicates and other cement minerals; developed production technologies for Nano-cements and alinite cements.

The innovative approach allowed M.Ya. Bickbau to create the new prospect in the science of materials and components: nano-, micro- and macro- encapsulation of various dispersions is used to obtain new properties of materials and products. These ideas lead to invention of the new technology, based on mechanochemical activation resulting in nano-encapsulation of cement particles. This technology of Nano cement production provides for dramatic reduction in CO2 emissions, fuel consumption, and production costs. M.Ya. Bickbau was the first who developed the technology of microencapsulation of granulated materials (claydite gravel, chip) with the binding shell to obtain lightweight concrete - KAPSIMET, which is widely used in buildings and road construction; the unique energy saving equipment was created for fine crushing, mechanochemical activation and encapsulation of various materials. For his achievements M.Ya Bickbau was nominated for Nobel Prize in 2012.
