Dear colleagues and friends,
Association of the Russian chlor-alkali industry “RusChlor” is now preparing at full throttle its Ninth International Technology Conference entitled “Chlorine and its derivatives 2015: Best Available Techniques”. The conference will be held in Moscow at the conference hall of “Baltschug Kempinski” hotel on March 31 through April 01, 2015.
Each of the eight such conferences previously held by RusChlor was a great success in both the scope of the themes considered and prominence of the conference’s attendees, which makes the incoming event the most important forum on the problems currently felt by the chlor-alkali sector in the Russian Federation. We expect that most of the prominent Russian and foreign engineering companies, scientific organizations, producers of equipment and instruments who are currently dealing with chlorine will take part in the conference along with all the Russian chlor-alkali producers.
In composing the programme for the conference we aimed mostly at staging a proper discussion of the feasible development options available for the Russian chlor-alkali industry. Therefore the programme will consist of the following major blocks of themes:
1. Current state of the industry vs conditions guaranteeing its future sustainable development:
· National development strategy for the Russian chemical industry through to the year 2030 built on the assumption that the chlor-alkali subindustry should be considered the industry’s base sector.
· The current state of the chlor-alkali industry vs Technical Policy’s implications for the further development of the chlor-alkali and organochlorine products industries in the Russian Federation.
· Outcomes of the reform of the system for the technical-and-normative regulation and supervision over the hazardous industrial facilities.
· Major novelties introduced into the legal and business practice by the approval of National Standards “Safety Rules for Production of Chlorine and Chlorine-containing Substances” on August 11, 2014.
2. Engineering, construction, modernization, and commissioning projects carried out for both the brand-new and old facilities. Achievements vs Problems
· The problems felt in reconstruction and extension of the production of chlorine and its derivatives;
· Experience gathered in designing, constructing, and commissioning the brand-new chlorine production facilities.
3. Modern technological equipment, pipelines, fittings, fixtures, and control instruments employed by the clor-alkali production processes.
4. Outcomes of the latest WCC Annual Meeting (Houston, Texas, October 15 through 17, 2014)
All the interested in participating in the conference should turn to the organizing committee.
