St. Petersburg, Russia,
Astoria Hotel 5*
International forum "Petrochemistry and Polymers PRO," organized by INFOCONNECT PRO, brought together representatives from major petrochemical and refining companies such as SIBUR, TITAN, LUKOIL, Gazprom Neft, TAIF-NK, RUSVINYL, Kirishinefteorgsintez, Polymir, and others to discuss issues related to the investment projects implementation and import substitution in technologies, equipment, and catalysts.

Experts concur that for competitiveness in the global market, enterprises need to continue deepening raw material processing processes and producing chemical products with high added value. Own solutions for import substitution in oil and gas chemistry technologies were presented by SIE EUROCHEM, A.V. Topchiev Institute of Petrochemical Synthesis, and VNIIOS-Nauka. The main problem facing the industry is the significant gap between technology and catalyst development processes by research institutes and their implementation in refineries and petrochemical plants. During the round table on import substitution and implementation of investment projects in new conditions, participants concluded that the creation of state project organizations, which will become the "drivers" of industry development, is necessary for a smoother transition from science to engineering and operation.

Significant attention at the forum was devoted to import substitution in equipment and improving the efficiency of production processes. Papers were presented by: Elma-Asterion, Technokhim, EnTechMash, TECHNIQUE LLC, Datana, IBS, PROPTIMIZE, NAUKA, United Catalyst Technologies, AVK, GAZPROM NEFT, SIBUR Digital and SIBUR Polylab. Additionally, two technical site visits were organized for forum delegates: to the production of pump and mixing equipment for corrosive liquids to Elma-Asterion and to the production of internal column devices, tanks, and pressure vessels to Technokhim.

Environmental issues and the development of alternative energy and "green" petrochemistry were also addressed. KEPT provided a comprehensive overview of climate risks and their consequences, HPBS presented calculations for optimizing and compensating for the carbon footprint according to international standards for oil and gas chemical companies, and the A.V. Topchiev Institute of Petrochemical Synthesis prepared a report on advanced technological developments in this area.
