Office of contract research

лаборатория Satbayev University

Since its foundation, Satbayev University has been actively working in close contact with production, solving important problems and creating high technologies for production.

The University is constantly adapting its policy of interaction with production to modern realities. University scientists analyze the critical problems of a particular production, discussing it in the circle of the university scientific community, mobilize the best forces to form their vision, propose solutions and present it to scientific and technical council of the industrial enterprise.

The main functions of developing the technological partnership of Satbayev University with industrial enterprises are carried out by the Office of Contract Studies. Office employees conduct monitoring and analysis of global and domestic trends in advanced scientific fields, study the demand for scientific development and university services, interact with companies with the proposals for the modernization of production processes, conduct negotiation and sign contracts on financed research projects.

Services of the contract research office:

  • Monitoring of specialized sites for state and commercial competitions, electronic auctions and other procedures for the procurement of works and services.
  • Inform SU researchers about the announced procurement of works on research work.
  • Organization of meetings of scientific employees of SU with representatives of industrial enterprises with the purpose of cooperation for solving relevant problems of production.
  • Coordination of work of scientific divisions and scientific teams of SU on preparation of proposals for solving technological problems of production.
  • Coordination of the work of scientific units and scientific teams on the  execution of contractual works on the order of production.
  • Search for international funding sources and research programs with a view to involving university scientists in international competitions of scientific projects.
  • Organization of work on accreditation and certification of scientific research and scientific and educational units of SU.

At the moment, the Office of Contract Studies of Satbayev University operates as a contract research organization of a new generation, offering a full range of services related to the development of specialized solutions and new technologies for production.

The main areas of research carried out by Satbayev University are related to such areas of the university as IT-technologies, electronics and electrical engineering, "green" energy, geology, mining, metallurgy, industrial engineering, biotechnology, and materials science. The university has the most powerful computing cluster in Kazakhstan and performs large amounts of work related to solving scientific problems requiring large computing resources.

The high scientific potential and university experience in the development of the latest technological solutions allow solving effectively the most complex production tasks. We provide effective solutions focused on your needs to complete the project on time and within the budget.

As a result of this work, the number of economic contracts of Satbayev University with industrial enterprises of the country increases every year. Specialists of Satbayev University conduct research for such well-known private and state enterprises as “Kazzinc”, “Kazatomprom, Kazchrome”, “Petro Kazakhstan Kumkol Resources”, “Tospa Su”, “Parasat”, “Pavlodar Petrochemical Plant”. The best projects of the university were included in the gold fund of technologies of sovereign Kazakhstan.

The best projects:

  1. Underground leaching of uranium by innovative biotechnological methods.
  2. Development of a method for demetallization and desulfurization of raw materials of  УЗК LLP «ПНХЗ»  for the purpose of obtaining prototypes of demetallized and low-sulfur coke.
  3. Technology of drilling and blasting operations on the basis of automated design of parameters and results of mass explosions in quarries.
  4. Reserves for optimization of the mining regime and productivity of excavator-car complexes with open development of steeply falling deposits.

Best scientific projects of Satbayev University


Uranium in-situ leaching by innovative biotechnological methods

Intensification process of uranium In-situ bioleaching based on increased immobilization bacteria on solid carriers for increasing the uranium concentration in productive solutions and reduce the costs of sulfuric acid.


In the leaching solutions of mine, there is a low content of ferric metal. To increase the content of ferric metal, hydrogen peroxide is used at mine, which significantly increases the process cost.


At the first stage a complex of studies for the uranium mine was carried out - laboratory studies, sampling with bacteria, study of kinetics process under laboratory conditions on model and industrial solutions.

As a result, unique data on temperature working regime and  bacterial multiplication regimes were obtained. Bacteria adapted to mine solutions actively multiply without the need for their regular addition.

At the second stage, an experimental installation was carried to test the application of biotechnological methods directly to mine solutions. It was calculated that an installation with a volume up to 500 m3 for industrial implementation can provide the required degree of transition of ferrous metal to trivalent metal. The installation in the container assembly was delivered to the mine and put into operation. During the studies, several options for organizing the technological scheme were investigated. Laboratory data confirmed the transition efficiency of ferrous metal in solution to the trivalent form.

To achieve the kinetics process, innovative methods were used to increase concentration of bacteria. This allowed to increase several times the flow of solution through the installation that is of fundamental importance for the industrial project implementation.

Economic efficiency:

Biotechnological methods for In-situ leaching will allow to:

- Increase the content of uranium in productive solutions by 10-20%,

- Reduce the consumption of sulfuric acid by 5-15%,

- Increase the oxidation-reduction potential of solutions.

Council of Young Scientists

The Council is a youth meeting of plenipotentiary representatives of the university, which forms and conducts a youth policy that defends the interests of young scientists in the professional sphere and in solving social and living problems. The Council of Young Scientists is not a legal entity and carries out its activities in accordance with the Regulations on the Council of Young Scientists.

The Council was established with the aim of:

  • assisting young scientists in improving  their professional level;
  • development of scientific potential and realization of creative opportunities;
  • representation, protection and implementation of professional, intellectual, legal and social interests and the rights of the  scientific youth of university;
  • propagation of scientific knowledge and the latest achievements of science.

The Council of Young Scientists of Satbayev University is a permanent collegial advisory part on a voluntary basis.
