Nizhnekamskneftekhim was awarded the first degree diploma at the petrochemical forum of Tatarstan Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia Mikhail Ivanov and President of the Republic of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov took part in the opening ceremony of the forum within the framework of the International Petrochemical Forum at the Kazan Expo exhibition complex. More than 150 leading Russian and foreign companies, including PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim, presented their achievements.
The Petrochemical Forum of Tatarstan is an effective platform for the exchange of ideas, discussion of key industry issues by Russian and foreign experts and the scientific community of the oil and gas industry, demonstration of the latest developments and technologies, a meeting place for representatives of industry and the business community.
Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia Mikhail Ivanov stressed that the petrochemical forum of Tatarstan has been gathering the largest representatives of the fuel and energy complex, mechanical engineering and science for many years.
Gennady Shmal, President of the Union of Oil and Gas Producers of Russia, stressed that it has already become a good tradition to gather in Kazan in early September.
Also in 2021, the development of lithium polybutadiene SKD-777 on an industrial scale began periodically. SKD-777 is used in the formulation of tread rubber compounds for the production of tires for passenger cars and light trucks of the summer and all-season range, ”said Ayrat Safin.
The company annually produces more than 2.5 million tons of marketable products. The main types are rubbers and plastics.
The new brand rubber provides tires with high wet grip, low rolling resistance and high wear resistance. The analysis of physical and mechanical tests showed that SKD-777 has advantages over imported rubbers, is distinguished by higher adhesion characteristics and low rolling losses. At the request of consumers for the manufacture of tires and road tests, pilot batches of SKD-777 were shipped to tire enterprises and received positive feedback.
There are new items among plastics. These include special grades of polystyrene - PSON 535M, PSON 30FEB, composite grades of polyethylene - PE5230K, PE5235K, linear low density polyethylene - PE5118L.
“Nizhnekamskneftekhim has mastered the production of a new type of product - the high molecular weight oxyethylated product N-PEG-2400. It is intended for the production of fifth generation superplasticizers for concrete mixes. Universal additives, which are based on N-PEG-2400, make it possible to store concrete for longer before use. In addition, the strength of the coating is significantly increased. The novelty is undergoing homologation of converters, ”said the general director of Nizhnekamskneftekhim.
Major projects of Nizhnekamskneftekhim
Airat Safin spoke about the main investment projects of Nizhnekamskneftekhim. One of them is the construction of a CCGT-CHP power plant. The new 495 MW combined cycle plant will provide a reliable energy base for both existing and new petrochemical plants.
The construction of a new complex for the production of olefins and olefin derivatives is in full swing, work is underway in all areas, 3,716 specialists are involved in them. Currently, construction and installation work has been completed by 30% - construction of underground networks and foundations, installation of metal structures for overpasses, installation of technological equipment for pipelines and cable trays is underway.
According to Safin, environmental safety issues are a priority for the company. This year, the company adopted the fifth environmental program for 2021-2025. It is voluminous in terms of financing and the list of work performed; more than 12 billion rubles will be allocated for its implementation.
