to achieve such a result, the company took years of systematic work aimed at improving environmental safety and improving environmental protection. Almost since the founding of the company and to this day, respect for nature is one of the main priorities of PJSC “Nizhnekamskneftekhim”.

When created the chemical plant, its structure was almost immediately built a biological treatment plant (BOS). And they were ready to accept the effluent in 1966, when the company had not yet commenced operations. Later at the plant one after another appeared in the lab, and then a separate unit, which is environmental monitoring.

Monitoring of the environment, its evaluation and prediction play a key role in ensuring the environmental security of any industrial enterprise, petrochemical and even more. PJSC “Nizhnekamskneftekhim”, which, by the way, licensed in the field of Hydrometeorology, it is carried out by accredited departmental laboratories.

But 12 years ago the company implemented an automated system of monitoring of atmospheric air. The content of harmful substances is controlled not only around the perimeter of the industrial site, but in the sanitary protection zone, as well as on-site biological treatment facilities.

In 2019, the company purchased a mobile ecological post worth 24 million rubles, which allows you to monitor the condition of the air for 19 indicators. With the help of the professionals sampled in 25 different locations including residential neighborhoods of the city.

– It is of great help in the work, – says the head of the Department of environmental protection of PJSC “Nizhnekamskneftekhim” Svetlana Yamkova. – Employees environmental services has the opportunity to respond quickly to complaints in a timely manner to leave the place and to carry out analysis online.

Strictly follow the environmental and quality of wastewater. Last year, for example, at three points industrial sites have installed automated analyzers. They were every eight minutes, take samples and monitor the condition of the wastewater for pH and total organic carbon. So now, to identify the source of contamination and fix the problem specialists can in the shortest possible time.

a breakthrough in environmental protection activities of PJSC “Nizhnekamskneftekhim” has become a large-scale reconstruction of biological treatment plants, the second and very important stage of which was completed in 2019. To update the barefoot servants for the treatment of industrial and municipal effluents, and the company spent more than three billion rubles.

During the reconstruction of BOS continued to work in the same way. Wastewater treatment was carried out in former volumee, and quality control has not been canceled. But this did not prevent upgrade in 2019 as planned, the site mechanical cleaning of chemically contaminated effluents, where, incidentally, introduced one of the best of European technology – a method of biofiltration. And together with the Moscow colleagues to specialists of the scientific-technological center “Nizhnekamskneftekhim” managed to pick up a system of biofilters with the efficiency up to 95 percent.

in addition, in 2019 in the second phase, the company reconstructed and equipped with the modern equipment of the chemical Department of the laboratory boss. And built a new manifold for off-site transport waste water length of 15 kilometers.

as a result, has improved the quality of treated effluent, was provided safe transportation of effluents. At the end of last year, the contents in treated effluents, organic pollutants are COD and BOD, ammonium, phosphates, suspended solids, sulfate surfactants, and metals – have declined markedly. As it turned out, became clearer and the air. This was facilitated by the introduction of modern technology of screening and decontamination of vapor-gas mixtures, extending from polluted wastewater.

PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim is constantly seeking modern technical solutions that allow to improve the work of environmental protection facilities. They include not only barefoot, but also waste disposal facilities, as well as the buffer ponds are designed for mechanical cleaning of wastewater on the river Tongue and the stream Switches to Log.

– Ensure reliable protection of the environment is one of the main priorities of our company, said General Director of PJSC “Nizhnekamskneftekhim” Airat Safin. – Therefore we have invested heavily in the implementation of environmental programs aimed at reducing the negative impact on nature.

According to him, modernization of BOS is only part of the fourth in a row environmental programs of the company. Just last year, its implementation has been spent 2.12 billion. The program is designed for 2014-2020 and aims to improve the environmental efficiency of production, reducing the negative impact on the atmosphere, water resource protection, development of environmental facilities and the improvement of monitoring system and environmental management system.

in addition, the program includes improvement and landscaping of the enterprise and residential areas of the city, health care for suburban forests and development of unified sanitary-protection zone of the Nizhnekamsk industrial hub.

an Important focus of the program is resource conservation. Annually for the production needs, the company consumes about 67 million cubic meter��in fresh water and in ponds resets 45 million cubic meters of treated wastewater.

in order to more efficiently use recycled water in 2014-2019 years, PJSC “Nizhnekamskneftekhim” was reconstructed 11 cooling towers are designed for cooling large quantities of water. For this purpose spent 567,7 million rubles, while the energy savings amounted to 15 million kWh/year.

in Total under the program, starting in 2014, the company managed to reduce the consumption of technical water for 3 million 341 thousand cubic meters, to reduce specific consumption of raw materials by 9.7%, water for technical needs – 10.2 per cent, and heat at 6.2 percent, the fuel gas – 2.1%, and specific emissions of pollutants – 18.6 percent and reducing wastewater discharges to 2.8 percent.

the Total expenses of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim in environment protection for 2014-2019 amounted to 29 billion rubles.


as part of a pilot program of holding “TAIF” Group of companies which includes PJSC “Nizhnekamskneftekhim”, Nizhnekamsk will create a digital interactive map of dispersion of harmful substances. It is assumed that it will incorporate data from all inventories and results of continuous monitoring of the emissions in real time.

This will provide an objective picture of a condition of atmospheric air and to estimate the impact on it of the company.
