industry.
A unique innovative technology applied in work progress,
enables to solve problems that were set by the
customer, qualitatively and in time.
Tasks and objectives

The purpose of our work is not only to


obtain our own profit, but also
optimization of customers costs, and
maintaining their business reputation in
connection with their possible negative impact to
the environment. To achieve these objectives we
apply environmentally friendly technologies,
equipment and materials; regularly increasing the
environmental awareness of our staff and experts,
who directly perform works at the facilities; we
monitoring all the latest technologies in the field of
construction and environmental protection.
Resources
Technology and qualified specialists of the NNIAT
allow to carry out various complexity professional
works, and to quickly find innovative solutions
when it is necessary. NNIAT has its own park of
construction and special machinery, as well as
the original patented equipment designed by our

All the materials and equipment used in the
process of execution of works are explosion-proof.
All applied methods and techniques are
environmentally safe and aimed at
environmental restoration. Material and
technical potential of the company allows to
work simultaneously at various locations and to
fulfill the obligations under the contracts in
shortest terms in compliance with all criteria of
quality.

Oil-contaminated wastes neutralization

Microbiological remediation method

An important activity of the NNIAT is the recycling


and utilization of oil-contaminated wastes and
recultivation of contaminated lands.

NNIAT successfully performs full range


recultivation services of contaminated lands.

Technological and manufacturing capabilities


allow NNIAT neutralize oil sludge, contaminated
soils, and liquid oily wastes. Waste treatment can
be performed by one or several cycles,
depending on the amount oily wastes, thickness
of the layer, area of spills and availability of sites
for recultivation.
Sludge biological treatment takes from 2 weeks
to 2.5 months as it depends on its composition
and volume.

Tec
hnolo
gies of
NNIAT are
in demand
worldwide and
successfully
implemented in
Europe and in the
Middle East.

If the amount of hydrocarbons in the oily wastes is


greater than 25%, we return hydrocarbons into
production. To return the useful part and to
reduce the amount of wastes to be microbial
decontamination, oily waste are recycled in
centrifuges. Formed sludge cake is recycled with
microbiological method at the remediation
area, or by energy-intensive process in closed
containers.
Oil-contaminated soils recultivation

Applied technologies:
contribute to the
improvement of ecological
situation
help to reduce waste volumes of the company
reduce the costs for environmental
management
help customers to extract additional profit

For several years, we have successfully applied


the method of soil decontamination both on the
surface, and on the entire depth of
contamination without excavation (soil
washing).

The process consists of two stages:


removal of oil and oil products from the
structure of soil,
soil remediation (technical and biological
stages).
Depending on demands and possibilities of the
customer top layer of soil can be removed and
transferred to the site of bioremediation for later
neutralization.
Upon completion of work, recultivated area is
safe for human health and the environment.
Soil flushing to the entire depth of contamination
without excavation
Main advantages of the technology:
the process of contaminated soil and
groundwater cleaning takes place without the
excavation of soil
stoppage of the migration of the
contaminated groundwater
elimination of the risk of contact of materials
and reagents beyond the area of contamination
during the works
elimination of hydrocarbons on the
groundwater level
complete cleaning of contaminated soil
stoppage of oil seepage of oil into artificial
and natural ponds and groundwater

FULLY INTEGRATED SOLUTIONS OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS


IN THE OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY

Stoppage of oil seepage of oil into artificial and


natural ponds and groundwater

Localization, stop of migration and extraction of


petroleum product plume

Contamination of soil and groundwater occurs


when lost oil products (for example, as a result of
accidental spillage) infiltrate into the deeper
layers of the ground. Contaminated
groundwater can be hazardous in case of
hydrocarbons seepage in the surface water
objects.

When oil seeps into the deeper layers of ground


hydrocarbons can exist in underground
conditions and in the free form in the form of socalled lens, migrating together with groundwater
without mixing with it.

To solve this problem, we have developed a


technology, assuming an impenetrable wall
device, isolating the source of contamination into
groundwater and water bodies, installing of
impervious cards and water purification

We have experience in the construction of


separation walls, preventing the spread of
contaminated groundwater and purification of
polluted areas. The applied methods of
remediation are capable in a short time to restore
the ecology of the territory near the source of
contamination.
A result of application of this technology:
Stopped seepage of hydrocarbons into the
Moscow River along the front of 150 m in length by
ground claying with arrangement of underground
biologically active filters for groundwater offloading. The source of contamination into the
Moscow River water protection zone eliminated;
groundwater purification of hydrocarbons
contamination performed.

To solve such problems, our specialists have


developed a set of measures to stop migration
and extract groundwater lenses.
At the area of enterprise during the year were
recovered and transferred to the customer 24 000
tons of oil containing liquids from underground

l e n s e s
under the
industrial site
the company.
Average daily
e x t r a c t i o n o f
hydrocarbons from the
surface of the ground water
was about 100 tons, which
further were involved in the production. The
whole area of the plant was equipped with a
network of casing wells (more than 700 pcs.) for
pumping hydrocarbons accumulated over the
life of the enterprise.
It is worth mentioning that before works started,
engineering survey have been held by our
company to determine the distribution
boundaries of oil containing liquid and the depth
of its occurrence under the industrial site.
The result of the application of developed
technology was not only qualitative
performance of works, but also the subsequent
implementation of the project for drilling and
completion of exploratory wells and monitoring
for availability of objective control of oil
containing liquid, groundwater level
measurement and hydrogeological monitoring
the situation in the main streams of
hydrocarbons.

COMPLETE STORAGE TANK SERVICE

Nizhny Novgorod Institute Applied Technologies


provides a full spectrum of works on servicing of all
types and sizes of tanks, design, installation,
repairing, cleaning, and demounting.
During the use of storage tank as well as for crude
oil or various kinds of products, accumulation
inside the oil sludge occurs which makes it difficult

Comprehensive solution of environmental


problems
One of the priorities of the Nizhny Novgorod
Institute of Applied Technologies is the design
and development of an integrated approach to
solving environmental problems, which is a
guarantee of intensifying and accelerating the
process of improving of ecological situation.
Nizhny Novgorod Institute Applied Technologies
offers you a method of closed cycle recycling of
oil-contaminated wastes withe the possibility of
extracting a useful hydrocarbons part and
minimize the amount of wastes to be
microbiological decontamination. Such
approach assumes there is no need to recycle
wastes at the landfill, and therefore no additional
costs to the customer, associated with the
removal, utilization and the negative impact to
the environment. Due to developed and applied
technology, we can return separated oil to the
Customer and the remaining wastes can be
neutralized by microbiological method at the
bioremediation site, or energy-intensive process
in closed containers. After recycling soil mixture
can be used for road filling, elimination of gullies,
backfill pits to create a lawn or align the terrain at
the enterprise, according to 711-001-93754080-2014.
As a result of the integrated approach:
since August 2013 we recycled more than 150 000
m3 oily wastes, useful part of the oil was returned
into the production cycle of enterprises.

manufacturing processes and wear of pipelines


and there is a small amount of oil in the residual
sediment, which facilitates their utilization and
has a positive ecological effect. Multiple reviews
and letters of appreciation we received on the
results of our work, it is the proof of reliability of the
developed technology.
Technology and qualified specialists of the Nizhny
Novgorod Institute of Applied technologies allow
performing works at complicated, emergency

neutralized more than


60 000 m3 oily wastes
using microbiological
method
65,000 m3 of oil-contaminated
soil were remediated without
excavation in Moscow river water
protection zone and more than 785 000 m3 at
the territory of enterprise.
Integrated system of solving environmental
problems that are associated with the
formation of oil-contaminated wastes,
developed by Nizhny Novgorod Institute
Applied Technologies is the most profitable
for the customer enterprises.
All applied methods, technologies and
materials are environmentally friendly and
aimed at environmental restoration.
It should be noted that works this kind and
scale have not conducted in Russia before.

to use and makes


it necessary to
clean the tank, to
transport and recycle
wastes. Since 2006, Nizhny
Novgorod Institute of Applied
Technologies successfully applied "know-how"
technology to accelerate the removal of solid
sludge from the tanks of all types and sizes. The
applied technology can significantly reduce the
cleaning costs and further storage or waste
disposal.
Please note that this technology
allows bringing sludge into the
liquid condition and
returning to the
production cycle up
to 97% of the
organic oil that is
certainly a net
profit for Enterprise, this profit often significantly
exceeds the expenses for tanks cleaning. (at
large sediments profit of the company can be
several millions of dollars), and the costs of
enterprise for disposal of sludge are reduced
almost to a minimum.
Important advantages of this technology is that
the pumped oil is substantially free of mechanical
impurities, as a result there is no violation of

tanks, which were refused to maintain by other


service companies.
For example, successfully completed work on
cleaning tank PBC-10000 with emergency
floating roof at the Moscow Refinery (July August 2006), PBC-20000 "LUKOIL-Perm Refinery"
with the emergency pontoon, fallen to the
bottom of a tank (may 2006 ), PBC-20000 JSC
"Sibneft-Omsk Refinery" with a fallen pontoon to
the bottom and with a broken bottom (August
2007), PBC-5000 with the emergency and
partially collapsed to the bottom pontoon at
Afipsky Refinery" (April 2009), -50000
Private Joint Stock Company LINIK with
penetration corrosion of the bottom (October
2010), PBC-50000 OJSC "Saratov Oil Refinery"
(December 2012), PBC-20000 "LUKOILVolgograd" (October 2013), PBC-50000 of
"TANECO" (March 2015), and others.

As a result positive reviews and an invitation to
further cooperation were received.


BIOTECHNOLOGIES

BIOTECHNOLOGIES

Decomposition of oil and petroleum products in


the soil in the natural environment - is a long
biogeochemical process. Functional activity of
the microorganisms affects the rate of
decomposition, ensuring complete
mineralization of oil and oil products particles to

the elements of water and


carbon dioxide.
We have developed a technique for
eliminating the effects of oil pollution that
took place:
when installing pipelines during construction,
maintenance, land reclamation and other
works
when dismantling of military bases, railway
facilities, fuel storages and gas stations
in the mining and extraction of peat
Efficiency applied technologies allows to
neutralize up to 99% of a mineral oil.

There are microbiological scientists among the


staff of institute, involved in the development and
experimental production of biological products.
