On 2 September 2019 the forum guest delegation headed by Rustam Minnikhanov, the President of the Republic of Tatarstan, were met by Ruslan Shigabutdinov, the General Director of TAIF JSC, the Chairman of the Nizhnekamskneftekhim Board and Azat Bikmurzin, the General Director of Nizhnekamskneftekhim at the stand of Nizhnekamskneftekhim. During presentation, the head of Nizhnekamskneftekhim told the audience about the results of the Company's work aiming to increase the branded range of products, and the implementation of the main environmental project, reconstruction of biological treatment facilities.
In total, about 200 companies from Russia, as well as the former Soviet Union republics and beyond take part in the forum. The forum will cover meetings with leading industry experts from the companies of the Republic of Tatarstan, various scientific and practical conferences and round table discussions on the topics.
Today, the opening of biological treatment facilities (BOS) took place at PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim after a large-scale reconstruction. Mr. Rustam Minnikhanov, the RT President, Mr. Ruslan Shigabutdinov, the General Director of TAIF JSC, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim, Mr. Azat Bikmurzin, the General Director of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim, Mr. Aidar Metshin, Head of Nizhnekamsk Municipal; Region, Mr. Alexander Zhadan, the General Director of Mediana Filter, the Research and Production Company, Moscow and other officials took part in the celebration.
The reconstruction of biological treatment facilities is one of the main environmental projects of the Company. They were commissioned in 1966. The general developer of the technology and the executor of the project documentation was the GPI SoyuzVodoKanalProject (Moscow).
Both household and domestic wastewater from Nizhnekamsk and industrial wastewater from the production site are supplied to BOS. The share of city wastewater is 19%. It is accumulated from population, from various companies and enterprises: gas stations, car washes, garage cooperatives, car services, medical institutions, shopping centers, as well as from enterprises located in the village of Builders and in the BSI area
81% of wastewaters entering the BOS are wastewaters from over 60 enterprises located at the industrial hub. These include PJSC NizhnekamskShina, AO NizhnekamskTekhUglerod, AO SG-trans, OOO Prettl-NK, OOO Chelny-Broiler, OOO Industrial Park “Pioner”, OOO Nizhnekamsk Plant of Steel Structures, and many others.
This information was presented to the Head of the Republic by the General Director of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim, Azat Bikmurzin. He explained to Rustam Minnikhanov in detail about the step-by-step modernization of the biological treatment facilities and showed the progress of construction work on the mockup.
In the 60s, the city of Nizhnekamsk has been built side by side with Nizhnekamskneftekhim at the expense of the Company. Moreover, at that time, it was decided to combine the treatment of industrial, municipal and municipal wastewater in one location, because it was beneficial in the technological, economical and geographical aspects. For sewage treatment plants, the designers determined the area located far from the city and much beneath the city and the industrial site, so the sewage streamed here by gravity. In case of other arrangement of BOS location, the wastewaters would have to be pumped using pumping stations, and this would substantially increase the cost of their treatment.
The expansion of BOS has proceeded until the mid-80s and as a result, their capacity increased from 56,000 to 213,000 cubic meters per day.
The fourth environmental program, which the company has been implementing from 2014 to 2020 with the support of TAIF JSC and which is amounting to 7.2 billion rubles, included the reconstruction of biofeedback too. Its target is to retrofit the old industrial buildings and facilities, equipment, as well as introduce modern waste water treatment technology and construct new facilities, which will in the end significantly improve the environmental situation in Nizhnekamsk municipal district.
- I must highlight the efficient work of our colleagues - TAIF Group of Companies, Nizhnekamskneftekhim. In 2017, TAIF started the first stage of modernization of the wastewater treatment facilities, today, on the eve of the Day of the Republic, the birthday of Nikolai Lemaev, we are launching the second stage. And the work goes on. Now work is underway for laying out a collector. I think the moment is very positive. Nizhnekamsk is the petrochemical center of the republic. “Today, the industry uses the most advanced technologies, and we can confidently say that despite the large man-induced impact, we can achieve an ecological state that will meet international standards due to modern treatment technologies and modern production facilities,” said Rustam Minnikhanov, the RT President at the opening of the BOS.
In turn, Ruslan Shigabutdinov stated at the ceremony of putting the BOS into operation, that the issue of compliance with environmental requirements and standards has always been one of the priorities in the work of TAIF Group and PJSC NKNK.
- There can be no doubt that environmental costs are necessary. These are the first challenges of the plant, and the shareholders, that is, compliance with all environmental standards. Today we are completing the second stage of reconstruction and moving towards the third stage. There are always many environmental issues at any large industrial enterprise. However, I am sure that we will solve all issues with the support of the republic, the president, and with our active work; and the environment in the city and in the region will be better than anywhere in the world. The chemistry enterprise must be “green”, environmentally friendly, such technologies are available now”, added Ruslan Shigabutdinov.
The general designer of the 1st stage of the BOS reconstruction was JSC MosVodoKanalNIIProject, the technical writer of the technical documentation was OOO ASP-AKVA.
The first stage was carried out in 2016. The entire unit for mechanical cleaning of household wastes was rebuilt and re-equipped, the building of grids with a receiving chamber, aerated sand traps, a mixer for household and chemically contaminated streams, mixers emptying pump house, electric cable racks were installed, and special units for combined-gas mixes treatment were erected. The entire complex is equipped with the up-to-date equipment and leak-proof, the smelling emissions are now neutralized.
The implementation of this stage made it possible to trap suspended substances and wastes from the drains with a tolerance of 5 mm minimum, to save household organics as much as possible, which positively affects the concentration of sludge in aeration tanks and, in turn, improves the quality of biological treatment, resulting in reduce of iron concentration in drains by 19%, aluminum - by 16%, sulfates - by 17%, phenols - by 35%, formaldehyde - by 52%, and methanol - by 71%
The company reimbursed 610.4 mln rubles (VAT incl.) to the first stage of the reconstruction of the domestic wastewater mechanical treatment unit.
In 2018, the second stage of the reconstruction of the biofeedback began. The unit of reception and mechanical treatment of the industrial wastewater underwent dramatic changes. The developer of the design documentation is OOO ASP-AKVA, and the supplier of the process equipment and technology is JSC NPK Mediana Filter
As part of the second stage, new buildings and structures were reconstructed and built at the industrial wastewater treatment unit as follows: a receiving chamber, a polymer chip collection basin with a gas drain, sand traps, a volatile hydrocarbon removal unit and a gas treatment unit. All facilities are absolutely airtight. Thus, a possibility of unpleasant odors ingress into the atmosphere during the treatment of wastewater is prevented. Another feature is the latest gas treatment plants - biofilters. They are block boxes that are inhabited by special types of bacteria. The microorganisms neutralize unpleasant odors. This technology is one of the best in Europe. The efficiency of gas effluents treatment reaches 95%.
In general, the reconstructed facility has a number of the following significant advantages: the entire wastewater treatment process runs in conditions of complete tightness and ensures the reliability of the system for transporting wastewater to BOS; the use of a pool to collect a trapped product is intended to capture oil products from wastewater; the use of closed aeration tanks will allow you to blow off and trap unpleasant chemical odors released during wastewater treatment; the use of activated sludge (a group of special bacteria) will improve the efficiency of wastewater treatment removing organic compounds and oil products.
Also, as part of the second stage, the chemical department of the biofeedback laboratory was reconstructed with modern equipment. Here they control the quality of incoming domestic and chemically contaminated wastewater, surface and groundwater, daily monitor the microorganism number involved in wastewater treatment. A video panel appeared at the sewer treatment plant, which displays on-line analytical monitoring of the sewage.
The modernization of the second stage of the biofeedback reconstruction costs Nizhnekamskneftekhim 1.25 bln rubles (VAT incl.).
Concurrently from March 2019, the construction of a new off-site collector for industrial stream drainage is underway. It is almost 15 kilometers long. The collector is laid by two methods: an open method and microtunneling. The latter is used when laying the pipeline over road and railway crossings. The new collector will increase the throughput of the system for transporting wastewater to sewage treatment plants, increase its safety and reduce the environmental impact. The cost of implementing this project is 1.501 bln rubles (VAT incl.)
The total cost of the BOS reconstruction, including the construction of a new collector, amounted to over three bln rubles, VAT incl.
As a result of a large-scale reconstruction of the biofeedback, the following was ensured:
- reliable wastewater treatment in the pace of development of the Company production capacities of Nizhnekamsk industrial hub and the city infrastructure.
- increase of the throughput and reliability of the system for transporting waste water to the treatment facilities and the release of the treated wastewaters into water bodies;
- comfortable living of residents of the city of Nizhnekamsk and nearby settlements, since it eliminates the ingress of unpleasant odors into the atmosphere, and pollutants into the water bodies and soil.PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim, having implemented the most advanced technologies and the latest equipment during the biofeedback reconstruction, successfully implemented an important environmental project aimed at a comprehensive solution of environmental issues. Thanks to the reconstruction of the biofeedback, a basis has been provided for the environmentally friendly development of Nizhnekamsk city and the region under conditions of sustainable industrial growth.
