Herewith we are submitting to
your consideration the proposition to cooperate in field of commercial
ecology. Underlie the relations we believe should be your capabilities
and interests and exclusive intellectual property of "VarTech
International Co.". The pilot phase of the said cooperation
could well be the realization of the project BJ-16. Our company
is author and executor of this project.
Under the data of the survey of the State Mines
Technical Supervision of Russian Federation, Russia witnesses
annually ca. 30 thousand breakdowns on oil production pipelines
and 50 breakdowns on main oil pipelines. The long years of operating
the oil refineries have resulted in significant volumes of oil
slime, fuel oil spreads and soil polluted by fuel oil. The rivers
flowing in the regions of oil extraction and oil refineries have
been saturated with crude oil, becoming proverbial "oil bearing
rivers", whereof a telltale example is the river of Ob. The
impending danger of cross border transfer of pollution, including
into the Arctic Ocean is clear as day, at the current moment.
The scales and consequences of this ecological calamity, as assessed
by experts, are next to only the Chernobyl disaster.
The project BJ-16 envisages the industrial recovery of oil from
the surface of water and soil, its on-the-spot preliminary purification
and subsequent pumping into the production pipeline. The equipment
for the said project adapted to natural climatic conditions prevalent
in the CIS have been elaborated by our company, on the basis of
a Finnish manufacturing company. The international patent and
exclusive rights in the CIS are the outcome of a significant financial
and intellectual investments made by "VarTech International
Co." from 1989.
The project BJ-16 has been elaborated in detail.
Currently available are the project and technological
economic documentation for realization of phased works during
a five-year period, with the use of Western and domestic equipment
at the estimated cost of 170 mln. USD; available, too is the necessary
contractual basis (in need of updating) with Western and Russian
partners. The project has been supported by the Government of
the Russian Federation, with two respective Decrees issued by
the Council of Ministers. The project envisages the development
and use of domestic and western scientific-technological basis
under the scheme: recovery of pollutants, their recycling, reclamation
of soils and reservoirs.
