Laboratory of oil and natural bitumen processing

Laboratory of the Oil and Natural Bitumen Processing was established in 2008 on the basis of the Laboratory of Chemistry and Oil Geochemistry. The Head of the Laboratory is Doctor of Science Mahmut R. Yakubov.





Main research activity

  • Development of scientific background for technology of heavy oil and natural bitumen primary processing and preparation for transport with the possibility of obtaining the unoxidized asphalt bonders. The solvent technology of heavy oil and natural bitumen processing has been developed.
  • Development of fundamentally new mechanisms of asphalt bondersmodification.
  • Study of the processes and development of new technologies of solid and liquid oil sludge (oil-containing waste) utilization processes. The method for thermo-mechanical dehydration of ultrahigh viscous emulsions has been developed.
  • Development of motor fuel components manufacturing technologies from renewable raw materials.
  • Development of petroleum sulfoxides obtaining processes and searching for the ways of their application
  • Utilization of molybdenum-containing alkaline wastewater of propylene oxide and styrene production.
  • Studyand simulation of pyrolysis process in order to increase its producing capacity and selectivity.
