KPI Inc. LLP, operator of the Integrated Petrochemical Complex for production of polypropylene, became the golden partner of the Atyrau Oil and Gas University named after S.Utebayev – presentation of the symbolic sign was held within the framework of the First Bolashaq Energy Forum. The topic of the forum was to discuss the prospects of energy transition in the country, introduction of renewable energy sources and their role in development of the region's infrastructure.
The forum was attended by large companies of the energy and construction sector of Kazakhstan, graduates of the Bolashak program, holding key positions in industry organizations, representatives of the Atyrau region Akimat, professors, researchers and students, as well as everyone interested in promoting UN SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) in Kazakhstan.
At the session "Energy transition potential in Kazakhstan", Daniyar Tiyessov, Chairman of the Management Board of KPI Inc. LLP. described the project.
"KPI is aimed at producing 500 thousand tons of polypropylene per annum. This means that it will be possible to produce more polymer products fr om this plant alone than Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan combined. One plant will produce approximately 35% of the polypropylene of the entire Russian Federation or 1% of the total world production. These are significant figures. I want to note that our company has entirely Kazakhstani management for the period of construction and operation."
Regarding the environmental friendliness of the project, D. Tiyessov dwelt on water issues – "This is the first project in Kazakhstan and, as far as I know, the first in Central Asia, wh ere the release of wastewater and evaporator fields is not provided. We have no discharges. Steam condensate, according to the project, will be at least 80%," he said.
Also, within the framework of the forum topic, he raised the issue of responsibility not only of producers, but also of consumers.
"The needs are growing, the country has embarked on industrial development, all this is possible with an increase in electricity consumption. The consumer should also contribute to making our country more environmentally friendly and safe. For example, if we make a regulatory decision in winter to reduce temperature of heating to 24-25 ° C. Yes, it will be cooler at home, but this will lead to a significant reduction in electricity, which will allow significant and rational use of resources."
Speaking about the relationship between educational institutions and the Partnership, the Chairman of the Management Board focused on importance of introducing curricula in engineering specialties: Fundamentals of Industrial Safety; Occupational Safety and Health; Fundamentals of Fire Safety and Environmental Safety, with mandatory testing or examination in order to improve production culture.
