History of YTU
The construction of the YTU plant started in Yaroslavl in 1962. Initially the construction was performed as a carbon black production attached to the Novo-Yaroslavskiy oil-refining plant. Since May 6, 1963 the carbon black production was segregated into an independent factory.
In 1993 for the first time in the industry the plant pioneered the implementation of the water recirculation system through water treating facilities reconstruction and the cessation of water discharge to nearby ponds.
In 2000 the operation of the production lines on the plant was entirely computerized.
In 2001 the plant put its own power station into operation. By burning the waste gas in the utilization furnaces (leftover from carbon black production) and converting the produced steam to electric energy YTU completely covers the energy needs of the plant.
Today Yaroslavskiy Tekhnicheskiy Uglerod pays great attention to the quality of the products, production management and control systems. It has own research laboratory where all the quality standards are tracked and maintained.
