Production of Catalysts and Organic Synthesis Products
Novokuibyshevsk catalyzers plant
In 2017, an “outside the reactor” catalyst regeneration unit was put into operation at the plant in December 2016 under license from Porocel (US). The new unit regenerated more than 1.3 thousand tonnes of hydrotreating catalysts for the Company’s oil refineries in 2017, and about 300 tonnes for third parties.
Angarsk catalyzers and organic synthesis plant
Since 2017, the Kuibyshev and Saratov Refineries have been utilizing gasoline reforming catalysts produced at the Angarsk Catalyzers and Organic Synthesis Plant (ACOSP) as part of a program to substitute imported catalysts and additives. As a result, the share of ACOSP’s reforming catalysts used by the Company’s refineries exceeded 60%.
The plant continues supplying its anti-wear additives to the Angarsk Petrochemical Company, the Komsomolsk and Achinsk Refinery, and pour point depressant additives to the Syzran Refinery, the Saratov Refinery, and Bashneft-UNPZ.
