On request of Ukrainian companies a former Kievite Yosif Heifets makes hydrophobic powder for filling up depositories of radio-active wastes. On his recommendation, a factory of hydrophobic powder is being built on the Ivano-Dolinsky basalt field in Rovny oblast.

Projects of Dr. Yosif Heifets attracted much attention of potential investors at the exhibition of scientific and technical achievements in Beyer-Sheve. This creates favorable perspectives for cooperation between Israeli and Ukrainian companies wishing to introduce new technologies into life.
