The construction of a landfill for the processing of oil sludge at the Shchelyaure oilfield is stipulated in the agreement on interaction between the PJSC LUKOIL and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology of Russia to reduce the negative impact on the environment. TDP-2-800 plant of IPEC make is going to be the central object of the landfill. The function of the unit is the processing of oil-contaminated soil and oil-containing waste generated as a result of oil and oil product spills.
The Government of the Komi Republic notes the planned positive effect of the plant’s operation – timely disposal of especially hazardous wastes from the oil industry and prevention of environmental pollution risks, but also the environmental safety of the equipment itself. According to Roman Polshvedkin, First Deputy Minister of Industry, Natural Resources, Energy and Transport of the Republic of Komi, pollutants are formed only from burning fuel at the burner to release thermal energy, and the emission is minimal – 0.7 tons per year, ‘for comparison, potbelly stove release 0.4 tons of pollutants a year and fouls up the air.’
Also, a representative of the authorities notes that the TDP plant is a modern environmental facility that technical parameters exceed the characteristics of analogues, for example, the system operating in the Usinsk district.
