YANOS - “The Leader of Environmental Protection Activities in Russia-2018”


For the second year in a row, JSC “Slavneft-YANOS” has become the winner of the All-Russian Contest “Leader of Environmental Protection in Russia”, this time in the nomination “The Best Environmental Policy in the Field of the Oil Refining Industry”. 

Every year, YANOS implements a set of environmental protection measures, reducing the risk of air pollution, water pools and soils. In 2018, in order to reduce the amount of air emissions, a scheme for removing the residual products from pumps in a closed, hermetic collection system was installed at Section 300 “Production of oils and paraffins” (KM-2).

In order to reduce the content of oil products in wastewater, the work was continued on cleaning the buffer ponds from bottom sludge with its subsequent processing. In addition, the utilization of bottom sediments from YANOS wastewater treatment facilities by a specialized company reduced the amount of previously accumulated waste by 2,650 tons, and it is planned to completely recycle and handle them until 2026. 

In order to meet the requirements of the legislation in regards to the terms of water use, a scheduled maintenance of fish protection devices was conducted at “Vodozabor” station located on the Kotorosl River. As a part of the program targeted at organizing the sanitary protection zone of the Southern industrial hub of Yaroslavl, 100 trees were planted. During the first nine months of this year, JSC “Slavneft-YANOS” allocated over 90 million rubles to the implementation of environmental protection measures. 

The environmental competition “Leader of Russia's Environmental Protection Activities” is held annually on the initiative of the international forum “World Experience and the Economy of Russia”. The jury of the competition included representatives of federal ministries, relevant committees of the Council of Federation and the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, leaders of public organizations, famous scientists and rectors of universities.
