Hereby the issue is the rubber plant BR PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim: halobutyl rubber (HBR) - chlorobutyl rubber and bromobutyl rubber, as well as food butyl rubber BR 1675P. Nizhnekamsk started the development of HBR in 2000. Experts of OJSC Yarsintez, the process designer of butyl rubber production, helped the petrochemists to achieve their old dream. The design center LLC GSI Giprokauchuk and the Russian Research Center Applied Chemistry were also involved in this project. The whole process of development program of the halobutyl rubbers production at Nizhnekamskneftekhim took less than five years.
The first Halobutyl Rubber bale was produced on March 13, 2004. And with the putting into operation the bromine production unit, the first bromobutyl rubber bale was produced on May 28, 2004.
The initial production capacity of halobutyl rubber was 30 thousand tons per year. As a result of revamping activities undertaken during 15 years, the production capacity was increasing. Annual production reached almost 150 thousand tons (maximum capacity) of Halobutyl Rubber by 2017.
Today the strategy to increase the production of these types of rubbers is in action in Nizhnekamskneftekhim. Halobutyl rubber is mainly used in the production of tubeless tires, therefore it is in a great demand. The main consumers of Nizhnekamskneftekhim rubbers are the major foreign manufacturers "Michelin", "Goodyear", "Pirelli", "Continental", "Bridgestone", "Cordiant", PJSC Nizhnekamskshina. Halobutyl rubbers are also used in mechanical-rubber and pharmaceutical industries.
The Nizhnekamskneftekhim company is one of the leaders in the production of food rubber in Russia. Several years ago, petrochemists began production of food rubber BR 1675P. It was the order of a foreign company that uses it as a glue base for chewing gum. To come in the market of production of food rubber the company implemented the Food Safety Management System with associated the FSSC 22000 Certification. Modernization of some equipment was required to ensure the compliance of production processes with high food safety requirements. The system’s readiness for certification began in 2014. A Certification Audit of the Food Safety Management System (FSMS) in the production, packaging, storage and marketing according to the ISO 22000 took place at PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim in 2015. The FSSC 22000 Certification Audit was carried out in 2016, which incorporates ISO 22000, ISO 22002-1 and five additional requirements This Certification was a part of the consumers’ requirements.The confirmation of compliance of Certification proper was carried out during commercial production of the food grade rubber with the requirements of the Regulations on the 25-27th of March in BR Plant. Nizhnekamskneftekhim passed the Certification Audit. Compliance was confirmed. For 3 years now from this moment the company is widely regarded as a manufacturer of food rubber and produces it at order. The company employees have received the next order on it in the middle of March. And in April 350 tons of produced food rubber will be exported to the United States consumer.
Ethylene plant of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim produced its 18-millionth ton of ethylene since the start-up in 1976.
PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim Ethylene Production Plant (EP-450) still remains unique in Russia, that has no equals in our country. It was built in record time - main equipment installation took only 14 months. The first modernization of the EP-450 Complex was completed in 1981. One more reconstruction which took place in 1988-1992 allowed to increase the capacity from 450 up to 485 thousand tons of ethylene per year. In 2011 the reconstruction and modernization of Ethylene production facilities resulted in increase in capacity up to 600 thousand tons of ethylene per year. Ethylene plant of Nizhnekamskneftekhim produced its 17-millionth ton of ethylene in July, 2017Now the annual production of ethylene amounts to 616 thousand tons. It was the result of putting into operation of two new pyrolysis furnaces of the SRT-VI type. The history of the plant began with furnaces of the SRT-II type, and now they are replaced by the new type Production capacity and environmental safety are not the only highlights of the new equipment. This project allowed to improve performance reliability of the furnace unit, as well as reduce the amount of flue-gas emissions into the atmosphere.
In December 2018, the plant completed the start-up operations at the benzene extraction unit, an it has already covered the production capacity by March 2019.Ethylene is the most significant component of many productions not only of Nizhnekamskneftekhim, its products are also sent for further processing to the petrochemical facilities of the city of Kazan and Bashkortostan Republic.
Three employees of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim have been awarded with the title of "Honored Chemist of the Republic of Tatarstan”. Two more employees have been awarded with the title of “Honored Power Engineer of the Republic of Tatarstan”. Farid Mukhametshin, the Chairman of the State Council of Tatarstan, personally awarded the employees of the company at the official ceremony that was held in the Kazan Kremlin on March 22.
Andrei Yankin, the chief engineer of the design center, Vladimir Panarin, the equipment operator of the 5th category of halogenation of the butyl rubber plant, and Valentina Kuznetsova, the equipment operator of the 5th category of the ethylene plant, have been awarded with the title of "Honored Chemist of the Republic of Tatarstan”.
Vladimir Soldatkin, an electrician of the 6th category of the management for the electrical equipment operation and repair of the II industrial zone, and Marat Shakirov, an electrician of the 6th category of the power supply management, have been awarded with the title of “Honored Power Engineer of the Republic of Tatarstan” .In total, 48 Tatarstan citizens were honored with government awards of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Tatarstan - these are employees in the fields of mechanical engineering, petrochemistry, government, education, health care, science, culture and other industries.
