M. K. Nauryzbayev good combined talent of organizer and scientist which allows him to create center for analysis of materials and carry out research in the different areas of chemistry and its applications. At present time KazPV project accepted for realization in republic for industry scale production of silicon photovoltaics which is one of the important branch of renewable energy and center is the one of the project’s collaborator. Elaborated by M. K. Naurysbayev with co-workers methods for analysis already used in industry’s processes of technology for obtaining and purification of metallurgy silicon for photovoltaics.
