Gazprom neftekhim Salavat has purchased a second mobile environmental laboratory, it is set to conduct round-the-clock monitoring of atmospheric air.


The laboratory is fitted with equipment from domestic manufacturers

The new mobile environmental laboratory based on the GAZelleNext vehicle is equipped with modern gas analyzing equipment of domestic manufacturers. The equipment includes gas analyzers of the sum mass concentration of hydrocarbons C2 — C10 and methane, ammonia and nitrogen oxides (LLC ETEK, Moscow), gas analyzers of sulfur dioxide and hydrogen sulfide, carbon oxide (JSC OPTEC, St. Petersburg), gas chromatographs for aromatic hydrocarbons and organochlorines (LLC EKAN, Moscow). Additionally, the mobile environmental laboratory (MEL) is equipped with a modern complex of meteorological parameters, generators of gas mixtures, pure nitrogen, pure hydrogen, heated sampling probes, sampling bags, and filter holders.


Mobile environmental laboratory on the basis of the GAZelleNext vehicle

The software of the new MEL, Ecological Software System (LLC KMP-SOFT, Moscow), is a specialized modular program complex designed to work as part of environmental monitoring systems.

At present, the mobile environmental laboratory based on the GAZelleNext vehicle has been mastered and put into operation. Trial visits to the control points in the residential area and on the border of the Company's sanitary protection zone with atmospheric air sampling were conducted. After passing the next confirmation of the accredited laboratory's competence in 2024 with the expansion of the accreditation area for this mobile facility, MEL will begin to carry out 24-hour monitoring of atmospheric air.


Annually, employees perform more than 60 thousand tests of atmospheric air samples when monitoring the residential area of Salavat, including complaints from city residents, as well as on the border of the sanitary protection zone and in the industrial site of Gazprom neftekhim Salavat.

The company already operates a mobile environmental laboratory on the basis of a KamAZ vehicle, which makes it possible to promptly collect and measure (test) atmospheric air samples around the clock. In 2023, the accredited ecoanalytical laboratory performed 34,316 tests (measurements) in the residential area of Salavat. Of these, 7,116 tests (measurements) were taken following complaints from city residents only. Since the beginning of 2024, the laboratory has done 10,564 tests (measurements) in the Salavat residential area, including 4,122 tests (measurements) in response to complaints from citizens.
