Taneko and MOL begin construction of a rubber-modified bitumen plant

July 19/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Tatneft and the Hungarian MOL Group have launched a project to build a plant for the production of rubber modified bitumen (RMB) at the TANECO complex, said the company.

The ceremony of starting the construction of a plant for the production of rubber-modified bitumen (RMB) with a capacity of 25,000 tonnes per season was held on June 6 in Nizhnekamsk.

The construction of the section is carried out using the technology of the Hungarian MOL Group at the Taneco oil complex and it is expected that it will also provide recycling of up to 500 thousand tires per year. The launch of the enterprise is scheduled for mid-2023. The total investment will amount to Rb1.2 bn.

The rubber-modified bitumen produced by the technology of the Hungarian company MOL is a product of innovative technology and combines the advantages of existing methods for the production of rubber bitumen. The project belongs to "green technologies" and reduces the negative impact on the environment.

It is assumed that the joint investment project of JSC TANECO and MOL Group will be a good contribution to the expansion of Russian-Hungarian cooperation at the regional level.

As it was said earlier, Tatneft will step up production in Kaliningrad. The company confirmed plans for the development of the Kaliningrad Ekopet plant. The acquisition of Ekopet will enable Tatneft to implement the plans for the development of the petrochemical business, taking into account the Company's goals of reducing greenhouse gas emissions along the entire value chain.

As per MRC ScanPlast, total estimated PET consumption increased by 15% in May compared to the same indicator a year earlier and amounted to 85,850 tonnes. Total estimated consumption amounted to 349,940 tonnes of PET in January-May 2021 in Russia, up 22% year on year.

Tatneft is one of the largest Russian oil companies today and is an internationally recognized vertically integrated holding. The industrial complex of the Company includes steadily developing enterprises of crude oil and gas production, petroleum refining, petrochemicals production, the tire-manufacturing complex, network of filling stations and services.
