Specialists of Nizhnekamskneftekhim and experts discussed the problems of climate change and global warming

Can global warming be stopped? How can industrial plants reduce their greenhouse gas emissions? These and other issues formed the basis of the seminar on the topic “Global climate change and management of greenhouse gas emissions at the company level”, which was held for the specialists of the Company by the representatives of the International Center for Sustainable Energy Development under the auspices of UNESCO via video conferencing. The seminar was attended by Ekaterina Bliznetskaya, chief specialist of the Climate Policy Department of Carbonlab LLC, and Alexander Chernokulsky, Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, member of the Council of Young Scientists of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

The seminar was conducted in person at a meeting with the company's specialists, Mikhail Yulkin, an expert of the International Center for Sustainable Energy Development under the auspices of UNESCO. He is a member of the interdepartmental working group on economic aspects of environmental protection and regulation of greenhouse gas emissions under the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia. Mikhail Yulkin announced data on the current state of affairs in the field of global climate change and noted that natural disasters now observed in different countries of the world are due to the impact of so-called greenhouse gases on the environment. These include carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, ozone, synthetic chemicals, and water vapor. The excessive presence of these gases, which are sourced from industrial plants, has an adverse effect on the environment.

The world community considers regulation of greenhouse gas emissions to be one of the solutions to the problem. A similar system is currently in place in the United States and Canada. Russian industrial enterprises also follow this path.

Oleg Grishakov, Deputy Chief Engineer for Environmental Protection, Head of the Environmental Safety Department of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim, told the audience about the company's experience in this area. The company conducts annually an inventory of greenhouse gas emissions and participates in a project to disclose carbon reporting.

– Since 2016, Nizhnekamskneftekhim has been providing data - carbon reporting in CDP format at the request of global tire companies. In addition, the enterprise prepares reports on direct and indirect energy emissions on a voluntary basis according to the methods approved by the Ministry of Natural Resources of the Russian Federation, - said Oleg Grishakov.

He also noted that in July of this year, a new federal law on limiting greenhouse gas emissions was issued, which comes into force in December, 2021. And, accordingly, Nizhnekamskneftekhim will, like all organizations, execute it. The company is ready for this.

Svetlana Yamkova, head of the environmental protection department of the Сompany, also added that in connection with the ongoing changes, and based on the requests of product consumers, a climate strategy will be formed in the near future.
