Petrochemical project in the spotlight - Biological treatment facilities launched at SIBUR's Perm site
In November 2018, SIBUR officially opened their new Nijhuis BIOCTOR biological treatment facility. The biological facilities were upgraded to ensure high-quality wastewater treatment at volumes exceeding 3 millon cubic meters per year and compliance with Perm’s local regulations, which are more stringent in every aspect than applicable federal laws. By reducing the load entering the city’s treatment plants, the new facilities will help increase the readily available municipal capacities and create more development opportunities for other local industrial operations and civil engineering.
A total of RUB 663 m was invested in the project, which was supported by the Perm Administration and implemented in cooperation with NOVOGOR-Prikamye – the company responsible for all water supply and wastewater management activities in the city.
The facilities at SIBUR’s Perm site were constructed in line with global best practices. In 2015, the first stage of the project was launched featuring mechanical and chemical treatment technologies. The second stage of the treatment process involves 24 tonnes of living organisms (20 species) to ensure a 12 times reduction in organic matter volumes within the wastewater.
