In his commentary on the election to the Central Council of the All-Russian Society of Inventors and Efficiency Experts, he said: “I’m honored to join the Central Council of the All-Russian Society of Inventors and Efficiency Experts, as research and rationalization activity is what I have been doing for all my life. Research is a ToAZ priority, which contributes to an increase in the company’s performance. However, it is important to make it a priority for other companies as well and to receive substantial support from regional and federal authorities. I hope that my activity as a member of the Council will enable industrial and fundamental academic representatives, as well as government officials enhance their cooperation.
Togliattiazot uses the inventions of its experts in its operations: the company owns over 100 patents of inventions, proposed by employees, and useful models.

In 2017, comprehensive solutions, proposed by Sergey Afanasyev and other ToAZ experts, were highly appraised by the jury of Moscow International Salon of Inventions and Innovative Technologies, Archimedes, therefore winning three gold medals and a silver medal for the company and the inventors. Based on 2016 results of successful research and development, ToAZ employees received an official message of gratitude from the Ministry of Industry and Technology of the Samara Region, and Sergey Afanasyev was granted the Regional Award in science and technology.
