A world-renowned scholar, a full member and a counsellor of the Russian Academy of Sciences, a member of the General Committee of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, a member of the Research and Technical Board of the Military-Industrial Commission under the Government of the Russian Federation, a member of the Research and Coordination Council of the Research and Technical Service under the RF FSB, of the Coordination Council for High-Energy Substances under the Russian Academy of Sciences, and of Interdepartmental Council for Military Chemistry.
Born in Chita in 1931, G. V. Sakovich graduated from Tomsk State University, the Chemistry Department. After finishing his post-graduate studies, he worked for some time as an assistant for the Chair of Non-organic Chemistry in Tomsk State University, and then took the position of the Associate Professor for Tomsk Higher Command Military Academy.
His scientific career started in Research Institute 9, then called Post Office Box 28, and at different times, the Altai Research Institute for Chemical Technology, Altai Research and Production Association, Federal State Unitary Enterprise Federal Research and Industrial Centre Altai; at present, this company is known as JSC Federal Research and Production Centre Altai. Having promoted from a departmental director to the Company General Director, he has done a lot for development of the Federal Research and Industrial Centre Altai as he fully staffed vacant positions of scientists and leading specialists, created the laboratory and developed the industrial, experimental and informational facilities. At present, G. V. Sakovich is the Honorary Director of the JSC FRPC Altai.
G. V. Sakovich is one of the most prominent Russian scientists in the sphere of industrial chemistry whose theoretical research in production, technologies of complex treatment, and phase and chemical stability of high energy composites and products made of them added the scientific value in the sphere of strategic solid fuel missile systems which are in use in the Army nowadays.
G. V. Sakovich is the author of four monographs, more than 500 papers, and 250 inventions and patents; he published 146 papers over last 5 years.
Academician G. V. Sakovich’s Scientific School for Industrial Chemistry is widely known in the world; the School has received supportive grants from Russian President, and G. V. Sakovich himself received grants in 2007 and 2008 as an outstanding scientist of the Russian Academy of Sciences. In G. V. Sakovich’s Scientific School, more than 100 Candidates’ and 20 Doctoral Theses have been defended.
Scientific and methodological basis for high energy composites production developed by G. V. Sakovich were profoundly recognized both in industrial and scientific spheres. In 1981, G. V. Sakovich was elected a Corresponding Member and further on, in 1992, a Full Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
Over several years, at the initiative of Academician G. V. Sakovich, the Institute for Problems of Chemical and Energetic Technologies of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences started working on problems of bioenergy and complex recycling of biological agricultural waste for useful substances production. Using biological resources, especially those that are accumulated as a result of agricultural activities, for obtainment of alternative energy sources is extremely valuable and important for agricultural regions of Russia.
