The thrust of the education program is to provide support to gifted children from regional communities showing promise and with proven achievements in the fields of chemistry and engineering to help bolster their professional growth and social advancement. The objective is to help senior school students acquire advanced competences in line with SIBUR’s vision of “an engineer of the future” and to prepare them for enrolling in relevant study programs at higher education institutions.
SIBUR’s grants are used as a vehicle for hand-picking, via a contest-based selection, talented school seniors to attend a specialized career-guidance session at the Sirius Education Center in Sochi.

The Session’s Program

The program includes:
— execution of a research or an engineering/technology-development project focusing on various aspects of analytical chemistry or engineering;
— a series of master classes;
— a series of lectures by, and interactive sessions with experts representing the Sirius Education Center, SIBUR Holding, and the company’s partner universities;
— learning about SIBUR’s operations via meetings with the company’s top management and heads of its production facilities, company presentations and other types of events.

Examples of cases in the field of engineering and technology development

— running complex production cycles using chemical solutions with capsulated agents;
— fertilizer micro-dosing;
— clean-up of land spills of petroleum products;
— a pump for a continuous-flow chemical reactor;
— recovery of oil from the bottom of water bodies;
— pumping small volumes of fuel at high pressures;
— transferring contaminated water into a holding tank by pumping;
— injection of low volumes of tracer fluids into material for analysis;
— dosing liquid reagents in a process plant;
— removal of toxic corrosive gases from viscous products at raised temperatures;
— a plant for maintaining a continuous reaction with high-viscosity agents.
