Basic scientific achievements

Developed the scientific foundations and principles of forecasting of stability soil ecosystem lengthways Northern route of expert pipeline and them selfcleaning of ability in case of petroleum pollution.

Developed a method for determining the self-purification capacity of soils by determining the rate of mineralization of petroleum products in different soils along the pipeline ;

Developed a biological product to increase biological activity and enhance self-purification ability of oil and oil products.

For the first time for urban soils Baku shows the possibility of increasing their biological activity and relevant self-purification capacity by using biologics based on activated sludge municipal wastewater treatment plants
