ZAVKOM was founded in 1933 as a chemical machinery plant.
The following milestones in the company’s history are noteworthy:

The first equipment for the chemical industry was manufactured: units for separating coke cooling and distillers.

Large apparatus from corrosion-resistant and heat-resistant steels were produced.

Distilling plants and heat-exchange equipment were first manufactured for the shipbuilding industry,
including equipment for the nuclear-powered icebreaker Lenin.

By Decree of the Praesidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR, for ensuring high growth rates in the
production of complex chemical apparatus, the enterprise was awarded the Red Flag Order of Labour.

Technology was developed for the manufacture of equipment from bi- and tri-metal for especially aggressive
products and research in nuclear physics.

The first turnkey projects in biotechnologies were implemented.

The production of installations for gas purification and treatment was mastered. The company developed
active collaboration with OJSC Gazprom.

The production of equipment for nuclear power stations was mastered. Equipment was designed,
manufactured and delivered for the Kola Nuclear Power Station.

The company engaged in scientific research in the design and production of innovative nano-materials,
investing its own funds in the venture.

The company was restructured and rebranded.

As heavy crude cannot be transported by pipelines given its viscosity and can not be refined at existing oil refineries.

The conditions and equipment for obtaining ETBE are the same as for MTBE. hydrocarbons by 7-8%). which significantly enhances the safety of its storage and use. The advantage of ETBE over MTBE is that ethyl alcohol is used to produce ETBE. ETBE has a high research octane number – 109-113. improves the economic and power characteristics of engines and reduces harmful emissions (carbon monoxide by 15-30%. ETBE is a so-called oxygenic additive for gasoline.  . During heating it can decompose into isobutylene and ethyl alcohol. MTBE is produced by using isobutylene or a butane-butylene fraction obtained from the reforming stage at refinery and methanol in the presence of acid catalysts. The introduction of this additive is especially effective for straight-run petrols and catalytic cracking petrols. ZAVKOM possesses latest technologies for the production of octane booster additives. our R&D centre designs cost-effective and advanced engineering solutions. Its use decreases the volatility of the petrol mixture and reduces the carbon monoxide content in exhaust gases. plant-based raw material.10 BUSINESS UNIT “PETROCHEMICAL TECHNOLOGIES” CATALYTIC PROCESSES MTBE AND ETBE Methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) is an effective. unlike many other simple ethers. which is obtained from a renewable. Additives such as MTBE enable the production of high-octane petrol using base gasoline. Isobutylene and ethyl alcohol are synthesized at a temperature lower than 100°C and a pressure of 1-2 MPa in the presence of acid catalysts. it does not form peroxide compounds. Ethyl-tert-butyl ether (ETBE) is a simple ether. Together with our partners we are well placed to offer the turnkey construction of MTBE and ETBE production plants in accordance with customer requests. The introduction of MTBE into petrol in the amount of 10-15% by volume significantly raises the antiknock rating of petrols. non-toxic and high-octane component that is added to gasoline. The speed of the decomposing increases in the presence of acid catalysts. Its chemical properties are typical for this class of compounds but.
