Fifteen thousand sterlet fry were released into the Kuibyshev reservoir by the specialists of the PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim Environmental Safety Department. The action took place in the water area near the village of Betky, Tukaevsky district. It’s just the place where juvenile sterlets were transported from the Fish Hatchery using a special vehicle equipped to maintain the necessary conditions for fish life in the containers. This is only the first stage of the work. In total, in 2021, it is planned to release 125,616 sterlet fish (this is more than four tons of fish products). PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim is one of the largest water consumers in the Republic of Tatarstan.
The Company's Environmental Safety Department together with representatives of the Srednevolzhskiy Territorial Administration of Rosrybolovstvo monitored the release of juveniles. The commission confirmed that the fry condition before release was satisfactory and that all release requirements had been met.
Ecological compensatory measure for artificial reproduction of aquatic biological resources is carried out within the framework of the corporate program for preservation of biodiversity at PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim facilities location. The water intake facility in question is on the company's balance sheet. It is situated in the Krasny Kluch settlement and is intended for water intake for technical needs of Nizhnekamskneftekhim and for supply of potable water to the residents of Nizhnekamsk. The water intake facility has an effective fish protection device allowing to minimize damage to bioresources, but does not exclude the possibility of larvae and juvenile fish entering into the water intake device.
Therefore, for Nizhnekamskneftekhim, the replenishment of bioresources is an important component of nature-conservative measures taken at the enterprise. The amount of released fish depends on the volume of water withdrawn from the reservoir. The second stage of fry release will take place in October.
Joint activities in the field of sustainable development and the circular economy involve sharing of experiences and best practices, implementation of environmental initiatives, awareness-raising and educational projects aimed at increasing environmental culture and awareness.
Particularly, one of the directions will represent the development of plastic recycling. Thus, this year, Nizhnekamskneftekhim launched a pilot project to install reverse vending machines (fandomats) for collection of used plastic and aluminium packaging. The first devices were installed in six sponsored educational institutions, and two more fandomats appeared in the industrial area. Due to SIBUR's involvement, the collected plastic will be recycled, where after the prepared recycled material will be sent to POLIEF in Bashkiria to produce "green” PET-pellets Vivilen rPET. New bottles, consumer goods and packaging for them - with a smaller carbon footprint - can be produced from this environmentally friendly material with recycled content.
Today the Company executives got familiar with the operation of one of the fandomats located in the outpatient clinic of SOGAZ “PROFMEDICINA-NK”, LLC.
“From year to year Nizhnekamskneftekhim demonstrates high results of the large-scale environmental work. The new V Environmental Program for 2021-2025 accepted this year is the basic component of activity in the field of stable development. It is a purposeful systematic work organized at Nizhnekamskneftekhim, in the course of which for the first time in Nizhnekamsk our Company launched a pilot environmental project for separate waste collection. In our sponsored educational establishments - schools No. 25, 32, 36, 37, Lyceum No. 35, Lemaev College of Petrochemistry and Oil Refining we installed six fandomats designed for collection and primary recycling of aluminium and plastic packaging," said Airat Safin, General Director of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim.
He noted that almost all the pupils at the sponsored schools have become involved in separate waste collection and have learnt how to dispose of plastic containers.
“As part of the ESG agenda, we will continue this work together with SIBUR. Our common goal is to teach the younger generation of Nizhnekamsk residents to collect rubbish separately and recycle it, saving the planet from household waste pollution," said Airat Safin.“The project of Nizhnekamskneftekhim to install fandomats in schools and the efficient scheme of returning plastic containers to production formed by SIBUR is a striking example of a project in the field of sustainable development. Based on the results of the collection, transportation, recycling of plastic bottles into flakes and recycling into food-grade PET pellets, the PET bottle will get a new life! Schoolchildren of Nizhnekamsk participating in the collection as well as in educational programs held through mediation of SIBUR and Nizhnekamskneftekhim will have an opportunity to make a conscious contribution to the ecology of our country," said Alexander Petrov, SIBUR Board Member, Managing Director.
PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim Plastics Plant has started production of a new special grade of low melt -flow general purpose polystyrene - GPPS 30FEB. This product is intended primarily for producers of food packaging.
The new GPPS is distinguished by its high molecular weight and almost no residual styrene. These properties of the plastic make it suitable for extrusion of foamed products, for the production of foam thermal insulation sheets and biaxially-oriented (BOPS) polymer films. A food film made from GPPS 30FEB has a number of advantages - food packaging is safe for human health, withstands mechanical and thermal stresses, and does not react chemically with products.

Commissioning operations at the new CCGT-TPP of the Company are gaining momentum. After a number of necessary pre-commissioning works, another important event took place at the beginning of September – the first connection of the generator of the gas turbine unit No. 2 (SGT-5-2000E Siemens) to the grid with ramp up of electric power of 21 MW and the delivery of electrical energy to 110 kV distribution station “Zharkov” took place.
Concurrently with this, a whole complex of commissioning works (commissioning) of the main and auxiliary equipment is actively continuing, including the purging of the high and low pressure pipelines of the waste heat boilers No. 1 and 2 off garbage and scale following installation with steam dumping into the atmosphere through mufflers.
According to the plan, after completion of the blowdown of the pipelines and the complex of commissioning works at GT-1 and GT-2, at the end of September it is planned to restore the waste heat boiler pipelines to the design position with steam discharge into the condenser of the steam turbine, and to begin work on preparation for start-up and synchronization. with the electrical network of the third unit of CCGT-TPP main equipment, Siemens SST5-600 steam turbine unit.
Specialists of CCGT-TPP actively participate in commissioning works with the acquisition of experience from foreign specialists.
The new thermal power plant will provide electricity for the existing and future production facilities of Nizhnekamskneftekhim.
