The treatment of 21 % of municipal effluents of the city and 79 % of effluents of enterprises, located at industrial site, is taking place here.
It is the very first environmental facility of the Company put on stream in 1966. Already for more than 50 years, PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim has Biologic Treatment Facilities on its balance sheet and carries out their reconstruction.
Currently, the second stage of this large reconstruction is carried out which was started in 2015. The first reconstruction stage of Biologic Treatment Facilities was implemented in 2016, its costs have made over 600 million rubles. As a result, the concentration of suspended matter in purified effluents reduced in 2017 for 26 %, the content of benzene, toluene and ethyl benzene reduced for more than 90 %, content of methanol for 32%, concentration of sulfides for 27%, phenols for 14% and formaldehyde for 6 % compared to those of 2016.
Today, within the scope of the second stage, a reconstruction of mechanical treatment unit for chemically contaminated effluents is going on at Biologic Treatment Facilities site. 922 million rubles will be provided for financing.
Installation works of pipelines of storm water sewage, of modular type pump house for pumping off storm water, as well as piles for process chutes of sand catchers are complete today. Currently dismantling of out of operation methane tank is in process, lay out of underground communications, reinforcement of buildings and construction of preaeration tanks, as well as of the pump house and inlet chamber, is carried out. Within the scope of reconstruction, a replacement of the boiler house, operating on fuel oil, by the gas boiler house of block-modular type is planned.
Pilot scale tests are at the moment in process at Biologic Treatment Facilities: the specialists are working on the process of removal of light volatile hydrocarbons from chemically contaminated effluents and system of their subsequent treatment. This process will permit to improve the state of atmospheric air.
Petrochemical workers intend to start this year the construction of offsite storm water header. Its length is 15 kilometers. The header will be installed at a considerable distance from residential area. Its construction will cost the Company about 1.6 billion rubles.

Over 50 employees of the Plant received Certificates of Appreciation and memorable gifts in celebration of the date.
On July 28, 1973, the first bale of butyl rubber was produced at the chemical complex. At that time, it was produced by only two companies, in Canada and USA, therefore, this product was short supplied at the world petrochemical market. Other companies of the former Soviet Union also tried to start the production of butyl rubber. However, the start of the plant in Azerbaijan was not a success, but petrochemical workers of Nizhnekamsk managed to start its production.
At present, the Butyl Rubber Plant of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim is the third world supplier of butyl rubber and has a share of 17.9 % at the world market. During the period of 45 years, the production capacity of the Plant was increased for 7 times, from 30 to 220 thousand tons per year. Currently the Plant is exporting 90% of its production. Large tire companies of the world use butyl rubber in the production of tires. On May 18, 2016, its three millionth ton has been produced.
Butyl Rubber Plant is also one of the largest world producers of halobutyl rubbers (HBR) applied in the production of tubeless tires. PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim started the production of this type of rubber in 2004. On April 24, 2017, a millionth ton of halo butyl rubber has been produced.

It was designed based on state-of the art technical and instrumentation solutions, that enabled to increase the production capacity of the equipment, stabilize the quality of products and exclude harmful impact on the environment. As a result, the production capacity of 220 thousand tons per year was achieved.
Particular attention is paid to improvement of the quality of commercial products, as well as of labor conditions at the Plant. Automatic rubber bale palletizing systems have been installed for that purpose – now the manual labor of the batch makers is replaced by the operation of three robotized palletizers.
One of the main goals of Butyl Rubber Plant personnel is production of butyl and halobutyl rubbers of high quality, which is implemented by further improvement of all production processes respectively.
PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim became the first Russian petrochemical company to implement a legally significant Electronic Document Management (EDM) integrated with the company’s management system to work with international companies.
Technologically, the documentation is managed via platform Kontur Diadoc of EDO AO PF SKB Kontur operator.
In 2017, Nizhnekamskneftekhim started up a project of switching to a legally significant EDM to work with domestic counterparties.

EDM with non-residents did not require significant efforts due to the interest of counterparties in establishing electronic exchange and the simplicity of the paperwork procedure proposed by SKB Kontur for the approval of legal significance by the parties.
The scope of the first stage of the exchange project included powers of attorney for the receipt of finished goods, which significantly shortened the processing time for shipment to overseas customers and saved the cost for documentation processing. In the future, the company plans to expand the list of documents to be exchanged electronically.
use of international EDM will have a positive effect in the interaction between
partners and will widen their coverage, as well as allow to indirectly facilitate
the company’s document flow with currency control agents (customs, banks, tax
