The commissioning ceremony of a production unit for BIOROS, a new oil biodegradation agent, took place on 7 July at the facility of the Safe Technologies company in St. Petersburg. The event was attended by Oleg Aksyutin, Member of the Management Committee and Department Head at Gazprom.
The new substance was developed by Gazprom VNIIGAZ, the company's core research centre. BIOROS is an innovative product for oil spill cleanup. It is more effective than similar products made in Russia and abroad, as it provides for, among other things, quicker oil spill removal at a greater range of temperatures, from 5 – 45oC.
It was noted at the ceremony that the production of the BIOROS biodegradation agent was a result of Gazprom's fruitful co-operation with domestic companies aimed at manufacturing competitive import substituting products.
