Atmospheric Air Protection
In accordance with federal laws On Environmental Protection and On Protection of Atmospheric Air, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Transneft Long-Term Development Programme up to 2023, the Company aims to reduce its negative environmental impact by cutting down specific air pollutant emissions by 1% in 2018.
Specific air pollutant emissions went down by 0.0016 kg/t (1.05%) in 2018 and stood at 0.1514 kg/t. The plan for specific air pollutant emissions reduction in 2018 was completely fulfilled.
Overall, the Company caught and decontaminated 11,000 tonnes of harmful pollutants during the year under report, including 10,850 tonnes of pollutants via JAOVRU (jet absorption oil vapour recovery unit) of Transneft Volga Region and RU (recovery unit) of Transneft Kozmino Port.
The main volume of greenhouse gas emitted from Transneft’s operating facilities comes from stationary fuel combustion in boiler houses to generate thermal energy for own needs. The boiler equipment installed at the Company’s facilities is manufactured by Transneftemash, a Transneft Upper Volga’s factory. The equipment harnesses state-of-the-art technical solutions, ensuring minimum fuel consumption and high efficiency leading to minimum CO2 emissions. In 2018, greenhouse gas emissions amounted to 453,300 tonnes.
