Successful environmental and social programmes
The oil refining company is successfully implementing an environmental programme. In 2017, the company completed the large-scale reconstruction of the biological local industrial wastewater treatment plant. On the site of the outdated equipment, modern facilities have been built with the unique for Russian oil refining technology of final purification, which allows to remove 99,99% of pollutants in the form of oil products from the waste water of the enterprise. Treatment facilities are capable of processing up to 500 cubic metres per hour of various effluents. Due to this system, purified water can now be returned to the production. As a result, the company has minimized the consumption of fresh water from the Kama River and emissions of pollutants into the atmosphere. 3,7 billion rubles were allocated for the reconstruction of treatment facilities. The solemn launch ceremony of the industrial wastewater local treatment plant was held in June 2017 with the participation of President of the Republic of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov, Director General of TAIF Group Albert Shigabutdinov, Head of the Volga Federal Environmental, Industrial and Nuclear Supervision Service Boris Petrov, Head of the Federal Natural Resources Supervision Service to the Republic of Tatarstan Farit Khairutdinov.

Significant funds are allocated for social programmes implemented at the enterprise. Since 2005, employees of TAIF-NK can obtain an apartment under the programme 'Social mortgage' and the Additional corporate mortgage programme, which is designed for employees of TAIF Group. Over this time, thanks to the work of these programmes, 740 families have received new houses: 635 people received a housing under 'Social mortgage', 105 people — under the additional mortgage programme.
