BASF has developed two pilot projects on the improvement of efficiency of Ekaterinburg's utilities sector.
The "Ekaterinburg - Energy Efficient City" is the first step in the activities of RUDEA, the Russian-German Energy Agency established in early 2009. The cofounders of RUDEA are the Russian Ministry of Energy (80%) and the German Energy Agency Dena (20%). BASF, Siemens, Viessmann, E.ON Ruhrgas and other companies are involved in the implementation of the "Ekaterinburg - Energy Efficient City" project.
BASF's press service informed RusBusinessNews that the first project envisages the energy rehabilitation of a block of flats built over 30 years ago. Heat insulation of the roof, walls and basement will be carried out in a five storey building. The energy metering equipment will also be installed and the amount of energy consumed will be automated. The heat energy loss reduction will result in saving of 2.1 million roubles per year. This practice can be applied in 3 thousand similar buildings in Ekaterinburg.
The second experimental energy saving model for the harsh Urals winter will be tested on a two kilometre long piece of heating pipeline. BASF experts reckon that energy saving on pipe heat transportation may amount to 98% providing the company's technologies and innovation products are used. In Russia these are made by Elastokam Ltd, a joint venture established by OJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim and Elastogran GmbH, a BASF SE subsidiary.
