Production of Catalysts
Novokuibyshevsk Catalyzers Plant
In December 2018, the construction and installation operations were completed and the commissioning of the pilot industrial site for the production of hydroprocessing catalysts began. Once commissioned, this site, starting from Q2 2019, will allow for practicing and working-out technologies for the full-scale production of catalysts developed in the laboratories of the Corporate Research and Design Institutes (LLC RN-TsIR - Corporate Joint Research and Development Center, and JSC VNII NP - Russian National Research Institute for Oil Refinery) and third-party research and development institutes to assess the effective use of new catalysts at refineries and to optimize their qualitative characteristics.
Angarsk Catalyzers and Organic Synthesis Plant
In 2018, ACOSP produced and supplied, to replace the imported ones, the catalysts for steam reforming of methane for hydrogen production units at the Kuibyshev Refinery, the Ryazan Oil Refinery Company, Bashneft-Ufaneftekhim, and Bashneft-Novoil. Due to replacements made, the share of ACOSP steam reforming catalysts for hydrogen production at the Company’s refineries reached 77%.
