New equipment – tanks for storing finished products - will be installed at Metoxpolyethylene Glycols production facility. The production of metoxpolyethylene glycols at Oligomer and Glycol Plant of Nizhnekamskneftekhim was started in 2019. The products became widely used in pharmaceutical industry, coating and metalworking industries, where MPEG is used as a binder.
Workshop No. 6711 of the Oligomers and Glycol Plant is involved in the process of MPEG production. Finished products are stored in the adjacent workshop No. 6712. For this purpose, five vertical tanks are installed here. In connection with the expansion of the brand assortment of produced MPEGs, it was decided to increase the number of storage tanks up to eight.Nizhnekamskneftekhim is currently working on installation of new equipment. The MPEG storage facility will be equipped with a pumping unit for circulation and pumping the product to the tank car loading and receiving rack. The installation of a new product storage facility as well as commissioning operations are scheduled to be completed by the end of August.
Today the cargo vessel "Oksky-56" delivered process equipment for the grassroots EP-600 Complex at PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim. The valuable cargo - a decoking air compressor package unit - arrived at the industrial port "TransKama". The injection compressor was manufactured in South Korea and sent to Russia by sea through the Indian Ocean on a special barge.
The package unit includes two compressors. One of them is designed to supply plant and instrument air to the process workshops within EP-600 Complex. The other compressor is used to supply compressed air to the coils of pyrolysis furnaces for decoking. The equipment will be installed in the water treatment shop No.7209 of EP-600 Complex.
The compressor unit will be the last lot of equipment delivered by water transport. The delivery of the main part of large-sized equipment, in particular, 17 process columns for EP-600, was carried out in the navigation period of 2020 - from April to October. The cargo delivery will now continue by land transport.
Currently, more than 2,500 employees of Gemont LLC and more than 150 units of construction equipment have been mobilized at the construction site.
Eighty nine thousand cubic meters of reinforced concrete structures were manufactured, more than 16,700 tons of steel structures were assembled. Three hundred and thirteen units of equipment have been installed on the foundation; work has begun on the installation of pumping and compressor equipment
At a joint meeting of Commission of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs and the Council of the Russian Union of Chemists, held in June, a whole range of issues was discussed related to the polymer industry in Russia. Among those issues were urgent problems and high-quality development of production facilities, processing of plastics and polymers, extended responsibility of manufacturers of polymer products, effective recycling models applicable in the industry, promising materials, technologies and others.
The main subject of the discussion was the task of improving competitiveness and profitability of domestic enterprises. More than 100 experts of the polymer industry, representing enterprises of the real sector of the economy engaged in the production of polymer raw materials, finished products from it and the processing of plastics and polymers, as well as public and industry organizations, leading research institutes and specialized universities, analytical centers of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia and the Ministry of Energy of Russia took part in the work of the Commission.
Addressing the audience, President of the Russian Union of Chemists Viktor Ivanov highlighted the need for consolidated actions by all representatives of the polymer industry in terms of development, production and processing of polymers.
PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim and PJSC SIBUR expressed their point of view on polymer production in Russia. They consider the key tasks to be the expansion of the brand assortment of products, joint research activities, as well as the development of new products instead of raw material offers.
According to Anas Zakirov, Head of System Solutions Promotion Division of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim, in order to enhance the competitiveness and profitability of production facilities, the Company has begun assessing its own capabilities for the production of small- and medium-tonnage chemistry products. In addition, PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim, as reported, plans increasing the production of polypropylene and polystyrene by 2.5 times in 2024. Thus, the total volume of plastics production will reach more than 1.4 million tons.
The main obstacles to the implementation of the company's goals in domestic and international markets were also noted, including a system of restrictive measures (carbon regulation, reform of fuel subsidies, trade liberalization in environmental goods), which is formed by European countries under the guise of achieving environmental goals, and artificial administrative barriers for the development of plastics processing facilities created within Russia under the guise of bans on the production of hard-to-recycle plastics.
The audience was greatly interested in the report of Mikhail Katsevman - Chairman of the Board of the Union of Plastics Processors, Director for Science and Development of Scientific Industrial Enterprise Polyplastic. According to the expert estimates, there are currently about 9,600 companies involved in the processing of plastics in Russia. More than 200 thousand employees work in these enterprises. In times of crisis, small business suffers most of all, and it is represented in the structure of polymer processing by small and ultra-small companies, the total number of which is 7,900, and the volume of production is 20% of the market.
According to the expert, the market way of doing business in Russia today is quite unstable and can be effective only thanks to a diversified regulatory base, which is almost non-existent in the field of polymers in Russia today. Due to the serious dependence on imports, the processing industry is subject to all fluctuations in the international economy and is not protected either by internal laws or by the competencies of specialists. With a steady growth in the production of raw materials, which is advancing at a faster pace and leads to a surplus of polymers within the country, today domestic processors have a shortage of raw materials for processing. A special circumstance to be considered by state institutions in their analysis should be the fact that annually Russia exports products from polymer raw materials worth $ 1 billion, and purchases finished products from plastics and polymers worth $ 4 billion.
Valery Petrosyan, Professor Emeritus of Moscow State University named after M.V. Lomonosov, a member of the Academy of Natural Sciences, reminded the audience about the extended responsibility of manufacturers of polymer products.
Another topic for discussion was the issue of bioethanol production in Russia. President of the Russian Union of Chemists Viktor Ivanov, who was supported by all the participants in the meeting of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs on the chemical industry, come forward with an initiative to develop this promising area for our country. Thus, a proposal was formed to include in the Commission's decision the necessary set of non-financial supporting measures for the launch of bioethanol production facilities.
Based on the results of the commission meeting, a draft decision of the Commission was prepared. Within two weeks, it will be finalized to incorporate all proposals of representatives of the polymer industry, and will become the basis for the industry's appeal to the Government of the Russian Federation.
