Specialists of Rosneft United Research and Development Centre (part of the corporate R&D complex of Rosneft) together with LLC RN-Lubricants (a subsidiary of Rosneft) have developed and patented a method of production of green technical oil TDAE (Treatment Distillated Aromatic Extract) to use for production of synthetic rubbers, tyres and rubber products.

Technological potential development is one of the key items of the Rosneft-2022 Strategy. The Company pays special attention to innovation and breakthroughs, recognising the technological leadership as an essential element for competitive performance on the oil market.

The TDAE technical oil’s characteristics meet the requirements of the European Union Decree 2005/69/EU that establishes the limit on dangerous components in rubber goods and tyres. The innovative product of Rosneft is not inferior in quality to imported counterparts, and surpasses them in some of the indicators. In particular, due to the lower content of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, TDAE is safer to use.

The method of obtaining TDAE proposed by the Rosneft United Research and Development Centre is distinguished by high economic efficiency and can be implemented in all the oil blocks of the Company in a short time without significant capital expenditures, which will increase their efficiency and expand the range of products.

The implementation of this method will make the Company the leading manufacturer and supplier of safe and high-quality TDAE oil for production of synthetic rubbers, tyres and rubber goods by 2020.
