  • Going Green: ITMO Launches Master’s Program in Decarbonization for the Energy Industry

    Decarbonization is a growing trend in the energy industry – all over the world, oil and gas companies are adopting technologies meant to curb their greenhouse emissions. In Russia, industry giants Gazprom and Lukoil have both launched decarbonization programs. However, as a nascent initiative, it still requires niche specialists, namely, engineers capable of operating the related equipment and designing recycling facilities. Starting this year, ITMO will train such specialists within its Master’s program Decarbonization Technologies for Fuel and Energy Industry. Read on to discover all you need to know about it.
