The Ministry of Ecology, Environmental Protection, and Climate Change, together with the Tashkent Institute of Chemical Technology (TICT), organized an expedition to Muynak district and the Aral Sea region in the Republic of Karakalpakstan. The aim was to form an ecological system in the Aral Sea region by attracting new innovative biotechnologies.

Professors, teaching staff, and talented students took part in the expedition. During the event, a TICT park was created on the site of the dried-up sea. In the garden, 350 bushes of Salsola Richteri and Calligonum were planted using new, innovative technology.

In addition, 37 sample objects were selected for future research by young scientists from Muynak district in the territories at a distance of 80–350 kilometers.In addition, more than 20 samples were taken every 30 kilometers from soil-clay and rafting sites. At the same time, 350 kg of complex desert plants developed by scientists at the institute were put into the root system.

For reference, the composite is a special fertilizer created by TICT scientists that allows plants to grow in desert areas and on saline soil.

In addition, samples of medicinal plants were taken in the desert, which will be used to develop biodoses for the prevention and natural treatment of common diseases among the indigenous population.ф
