In 2021, the first carbon landfill in Russia was opened on the basis of the TSU biostation on Lake Kuchak. Since then, the university has been working on scientific and personnel support for the activities of landfills created in Russia.
The project to create a network of carbon landfills in Russia is being implemented on behalf of Russian President Vladimir Putin with the assistance of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation. Landfills are territories where the study of climatically active gases is carried out with the participation of universities and scientific organizations. The research includes the development and adaptation of technologies for measuring aboveground and underground phytomass, agrochemical studies of soils, measurement of greenhouse gas emissions and uptake by ecosystems, and more.
