The World Skills movement will continue its activities in 2020 taking into account the new realities of life in the context of the coronavirus pandemic, and Tatarstan will take part in it. This was the outcome of the meeting of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Tatarstan on the participation of the national team in the qualifying competitions and the final of the national championship “Young Professionals”, which was held on May 14, 2020 with the involvement of specialists from educational organizations and enterprises of the Republic.
Renata Asylgareeva, the laboratory assistant of the production workshop No. 3601, the Technical Control Department, will represent PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim in the final of the national championship in 2020 in the competence of "Laboratory Assistant for Chemical Analysis". She has won this right by winning the regional championship. She will be thoroughly trained by experts before the finals.
Pilot tests of the new polystyrene brand GPPS 535M, intended for manufacturers of refrigeration equipment, have been completed at the Plastics plant, PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim.
The new polystyrene brand, developed by the plant’s specialists together with scientists of the company's scientific and technological center within the frame of the import substitution, is similar in its characteristics to a foreign polystyrene brand Styrolution crystal 165N of INEOS STYROLUTION.
120 tons of finished products had been produced during the tests, samples of which underwent extensive research at the scientific and technological center. During testing it was found that the molecular parameters of General Purpose Polystyrene 535M and Styrolution crystal 165N are comparable. In addition, the Nizhnekamsk polystyrene brand is characterized by a more stable melt flow and an increased level of physical and mechanical properties. Experts also noted the relatively high thermal (glass transition temperature) and thermal (oxidation onset temperature) properties of General Purpose Polystyrene 535M.
At present, end users are testing the new General Purpose Polystyrene of 535M brand.
The activities of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim involve the use of a large amount of water, which, after use undergoes treatment and disposal. It is the new technologies and methods for water purification that the specialists of the wastewater laboratory of the company's scientific and technological center (STC) are engaged in. Dozens of different physicochemical and biological methods, as well as devices for high-quality water purification, disposal of sewage sludge and gas emissions, have been developed and successfully implemented here.
Today, the priority area of the wastewater laboratory’s work is the treatment of wastewater and associated gas emissions using various microorganisms, whose vital activity is the result of wastes from petrochemical industries. Bacteria, utilizing various harmful substances from chemically contaminated wastewater, have been distinguished because of researches. The purification technologies are developed in detail on the Sartorius laboratory bioreactor and other recently purchased laboratory equipment.
Also, the laboratory performs studies on effluents from structural units of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim, using special techniques and test objects, and issues recommendations on how to neutralize them.
The S &T Centre microbiologists and biotechnologists made a huge contribution to the development of technology and commissioning of biofilters at biological treatment facilities, which helped to improve the air quality in the district. Biofilters are block boxes inhabited by special types of bacteria. These particular microorganisms neutralize unpleasant odors by feeding on volatile hydrocarbons. This technology is one of the best in Europe; gas emission cleaning efficiency reaches 95%.
These days the laboratory celebrates its 45th anniversary. The lab is founded in May 1975 for solving issues related to wastewater treatment. Lyubov Dubrovskaya was the first head of the laboratory. From 1983 to April 2013, Olga Yakusheva headed the laboratory, and then the young goal-oriented scientist Guzel Gilaeva took up the baton. Since 2019, the laboratory is by Valentina Nikolaevna Nikonorova, who has been working here since 1988.
Competence, outsight, responsibility, high professionalism are characteristic features of all laboratory staff, whose work created and is creating the entire experimental part of scientific developments regarding wastewater treatment. The environmental protection service, the water supply, sewerage and wastewater treatment departments, all the plants of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim closely work with the laboratory.
