Sterlitamak "Kaustic" solves technological and ecological issues itself
Sterlitamak "Kaustic" has been solving technological and ecological issues itself for decades investing for these purposes a lot of own money. Even in the most non favourable 90th the technical re-equipment and modernization of acting facilities have been going on. For instance in the severe conditions in 1996 there has been constructed a huge complex on vinyl chloride and poly vinyl chloride with facility capacity boosted 6 times. The management of Republic Bashkortostan and the President of Bashkortostan Murtaz Rahimov by himself actively supported this initiative and they managed to "clear the bar".
At the beginning of April the staff marked the 10th anniversary of this event as well as the beginning of new stage in vinyl chloride and poly vinyl chloride - the enlargement of facilities up to 200 thousands of tons per annum. In today's market conditions the realization of this task requires both moral efforts and material investments.
The core of the investment project is simple: by application of innovational approach to carry out some radical changes in 2008-2009 that are able to drastically change the ecological situation by means of large scale modernization, implementation of energy-saving solutions and own know-how.
The complex investment program includes 3 main directions: firstly, the investment into modernization of technology of production of monomer vinyl chloride, secondly modernization of technological cycle of polyvinylchloride production, thirdly investment in merely ecological objects including the reconstruction of biological treatment plants with envisaged investment of 100bln roubles. The gross investment sum with the investment into environmental protection for 2008-2009 period will amount approximately to 80bln Euros.
The financing of the projects that are at different stages of realization, but with rationally placed priorities, more precisely - the contract signing dates, equipment acquirement, supply of repair parts was open in the end of 2007. The schedule is tight made foe every month. The third part of all sums on each direction of the 2008 works has already been paid and amounts to 11bln Euros. To make it more clear let us admit the following: cooperating with such native and foreign suppliers like JSC "PoliHimServis", state unitary enterprise "Salavatgiproneftehim", JSC "Research and Development establishment Turbocompressor", "Alfalaval", "Kokh-Glich", FerroSteel and many others the specialists of JSC Kaustic do not leg behind from the tight schedule concerning terms and financing.
As a result of the work completed work projects are carried out, the channels for supply of special equipment, pipes, pumps and repair parts were worked out. Final terms for supply of principal equipment for center of pyrolysis of dichloroethane have been drawn.
According to the Chief engineer Fedor Afanasyev the result of the developed program will be the solution to a lot of ecological problems, among which the considerable decrease of the steam consumption, approximately by 20 % in the production of polyvinylchloride. There are and others advantages that will come out during the operation after the completed modernization.
JSC Kaustic Sterlitamak is the constant co-investor of the city ecological programs. For instance in the state agreement where the main client is Ministry of Nature and city administration the investment participance of "Kaustic" at first stage of the creation of new modern monitoring ecological program is evaluated at approximately 3,2bln roubles without VAT. 30% prepayment will be completed in May of current year that is more than 1bln roubles. The acceptance of the first stage will be in October 2009. It is planned to install primary sensors at the sources of dichloroethane and chlorovinyl emissions that will give signals to the station near the plant about the emissions of hazardous substances into the atmosphere. In its turn it will fix the percentage of the harmful components. This local system will belong to every enterprise of the city that participates in the program. This statistic installation operating in on-line mode will be in the plant zone and will be its property. The information will be send to a special check point where it will be analyzed thoroughly at the special equipment. In the same year 2009 it is scheduled to complete the second stage more expanded with the implementation of the monitoring on concrete components. For "Kaustic" these components will embrace dichloroethane, chlorovinyl, ethylene, chlorine, that are mostly referred to vynilchloride and polyvinylchloride complex. And all this will last till complete differentiation of all specific components.
As we can see the today financial possibilities and achievements of scientific technological progress let the enterprise make a decisive step towards the implementation of science intensive and energy saving technologies, as public relations department of JSC "Kaustic" informs.
Japanese philosophy to the Bashkortostan enterprises
"Economical production" - one of the popular themes in the machine building not only in Bashkortostan but also in the whole world. Its actuality is explained by the strengthened rivalry on the background of substantial growth in economy, exhaustion of the resource of the non-investment growth, the limits in the possibilities for the investment growth.
As the first deputy to the director Robert Vagapov said during the latest enlarged meeting of the Ministry of industry, investment and innovational policy board the key instrument of the competitiveness growth in the row with the technical re-equipment is the organizational innovation. One of them is "economical production" that originates from Japan. Per se it is a system of constant improvements management. It is aimed at the development of the company's possibility to constantly boost labor productivity, decrease the net cost of the product, to decrease the terms of shipping and other expenses and losses of the production.
The introduction of the system is non-investment project. It is of organizational character. The main in this philosophy is a human factor that is team work. On the opposition to the traditional management under team work it is understood not corporative meetings and discussion of the tasks together. The ideal variant is that at the enterprises implementing the system of economical production should exist life employment, the atmosphere of mutual help and family. The principles that are spread inside the company should expand on its clients and suppliers. If there are any problems they are solved together. Frankly speaking this system that is called Lin in the Country of Rising Sun can be compared with the soviet collectivism and rationalism.
To express it more scientifically every worker should realize and feel the necessity of self organization and exclusion of exceeding of some rational minimum. At the same time there is need to give some delegations and to explain strategic aims to the workers in accordance with their qualification and possibilities. Such work is combined with the marketing technologies and building of the chain of inner consumers and suppliers that are oriented on the consumers. Workers, engineers and managers directing their efforts on the elimination of the reasons of non-correspondences and useless expenses with joined efforts are capable of to create "economical production" as the highest form of effective business. It refers not only to production but also to other processes on the enterprise.
The world experience of the effectiveness of this system is rich in examples. The famous company "Jeneral Electric" saved from 8 to 12bln dollars having implemented Lin system, the largest aluminum company of USA "Alkoa" saves more than 1bln dollars per annum.
The process of implementation of new fashion philosophy stirred up at many Russian enterprises. Such being the case "Severstal-Avto", "ZMZ", "GAZ" and others auto giants demand the supply of the details and parts according to the principle "right on the button".
Robert Vagapov thinks that it is a high time to spread "economical production" on the enterprises of republic.
Bashkortostan people will taste Darjeeling Tea soon
The negotiations are still running concerning the agreement about the tea supply to Bashkortostan from North Bengal. According to the agreement not signed yet 20 tons of Indian tea of TGFOP and FOP standards will be supplied monthly to the tea-packing plant "Teastan".
According to the words of plant commercial director Valeriy Abramov the talks about mutual cooperation were started even before New Year, when there was a visit of delegation of business circles of India to Bashkortostan. Now the consortium of producers and sellers of tea is operating in North Bengal that will carry out the realization of the agreement from Indian side.
Generally speaking we have not had yet direct providers of this level. Indians promise to gladden Bashkortostan citizens with Darjeeling Tea - the most elite tea of four types of Indian tea sold pure.
