General Director of the Bashkir Soda Company
Taking the post of CEO, E.M. Davydov set himself several interrelated goals: modernizing enterprises, solving accumulated environmental problems and improving the standard of living of all employees.
In 2023, despite the coronavirus pandemic, the BSC worked at full capacity and reached its maximum production volumes over the past 20 years; more than 4 billion rubles were invested in modernization.
More than 350 million rubles were allocated for environmental activities in the first half of 2023. For the first time in the Russian Federation, a technology was used to separate the sludge into solid and liquid fractions. The atmospheric air control stations and an accredited laboratory located at the enterprise have never recorded an excess of the volume of harmful emissions into the atmosphere of the Caustic and Soda production facilities.
A program to improve the welfare of the workforce for 2023-2025 has been launched. It includes the following items:
- improvement of the financial situation,
- improving the quality of working conditions,
- expansion of the package of medical insurance,
- obtaining the first higher education in whole or in part at the expense of the enterprise,
- mortgage subsidies.
From January 1, 2023, the company has increased benefits for caring for children aged one and a half to three years. It is planned to build a microdistrict of 12 high-rise buildings and infrastructure in the form of a kindergarten, a school and a sports complex, where workers will be able to buy apartments in installments without interest.
Currently, every BSC employee who is sick with COVID-19 or another viral disease is reimbursed for treatment costs. By the way, the BSC provides support in the fight against coronavirus infection at the republican level – more than 42 million rubles have been allocated for medical institutions and low-income citizens of Bashkortostan.
On December 29, 2023, at a working meeting with Radiy Khabirov, Head of the Republic of Bashkortostan, Eduard Davydov presented a plan for the development of BSC for the medium term (2021-2030). Investments in the amount of 390 billion rubles will be directed to the creation of new production facilities (about 160 billion rubles), the solution of raw materials and environmental issues (about 190 billion rubles) and the creation of industrial parks “Soda” and “Caustic” (36 billion rubles).
In the near future, a water purification complex will be installed at the Shakhtau quarry, which serves as the main source of raw materials. From 2023, they will tackle the problem of the so-called “white seas”: they will no longer supply distilled liquid to sludge collectors covering an area of more than 460 hectares. After drainage and reclamation measures, a green area will be created here.
In addition, by 2030, the volume of harmful emissions into the atmosphere will be minimized, and the discharge of industrial wastewater into the Belaya River will be stopped.
Awarded the title “Russian Quality Leader” from the All-Russian Organization for Quality (2018), awarded the Certificate of Honor of the Ministry of Industry and Innovation Policy of the Republic of Belarus (2019), as well as letters of thanks from the Bashkir Republican Organization of the All-Russian Society of Disabled People (2015) and the Regional Sports Public Organization “Sports Federation struggle RB “(2019).
