On Tuesday, December 26, at the soap plant of the group of companies "NMGK" (Nizhny Novgorod), a new air purification system of general exchange and emergency ventilation was launched. The launch of the new systems was attended by the First Deputy Minister of Ecology of Nizhny Novgorod region Mochalina Natalya Nikolaevna, representatives of Rospotrebnadzor and FGBU "Center for Laboratory Analysis and Technical Measurements in the Volga Federal District".
New systems for general exchange and emergency ventilation were installed as part of the re-equipment of air purification systems at the soap plant. This systems provides for additional emission cleaning system. The new solution is fundamentally different from the system of odor blocking, which has been in operation since 2012. The system uses FK-IS contact filters, the design of Belarusian company “Imatek”. The principle of chemical oxidation of odor causing substances and the absorption of oxidation products is in the basis of three-stage air purification. The active substance of the filters is sodium hypochlorite (NaClO): the reagent neutralizes smelling substances and provides purification efficiency of up to 95%. Two three-stage systems that provide air intake and complex air purification were installed at the soap plant in the department of distilled fatty acids. During preliminary tests the new technological solution has already demonstrated stable operation even at high air humidity conditions and low atmospheric pressure, when blockers fail.
Earlier, in March 2017, NMGK announced the project of re-equipment of emission cleaning systems at the soap factory of the holding during a round table on ecology. Investments in the project amounted to 41 million rubles. The project is completed and launched according to the schedule.
"The launch of new filtration systems will ensure a high degree of air purification and will significantly improve ecological efficiency of the facility," said technical director of JSC "NMGK" Andrei Gachegov. "We started to work on this project in March and promised to start commissioning in December and launch all new systems. I am proud to say that we succeeded. Of course, the project on air purification systems at the soap plant is only a part of a large set of work to create modern, environmentally friendly and "smart" production. This also includes a number of projects to reduce consumption of fuel and energy resources, such as gas, water, electricity, as well as a large-scale project of local treatment facilities, which we plan to implement in 2018."
