Petrochemical technology and industrial ecology


Department of Petrochemical Technology and Industrial Ecology as a result of structural reforms at ADNSU in February 2016 on the basis of chairs "Technology of oil, gas chemistry and processing", "Engineering bases of chemical technology", "Technology of organic substances and industrial ecology" was created. Training of specialists in this department was carried out at the Faculty of Chemical Technology in the specialty "Technology of Petroleum", "Petrochemistry", "Chemistry of Oil, Gas and Processing Technology".

The academics such as R.H.Ismayilov, M.F. Nagiyev, A.M. Guliyev, M.I. Rustamov, A.M. Aliyev were graduated this department.

In different years, the department was headed by Academician R.I. Ismayilov, prof. L.A. Quxman, prof. K.Y. Adzhamov, prof. A.M. Trekubov, prof. C. M. Volox, prof. R.A. Lambambaranski, prof. M.Q.Mammadli, prof. I.A.Shikhiyev, prof. F.F. Mukanlinski, prof. N.A. Salimova, prof. R..I Zeynalov, prof. C.H. Ibrahimov, prof. S.A. Mustafayev. Since 2016, the head of the department is Professor A.A. Hasanov.

Hasanov A.A.  was born in 1948. He is Azeri.

In 1966, he was admitted to the Chemical Technology faculty of the M. Azizbeyov Institute of Oil and Chemistry (now Azerbaijan State Oil and Industry University). In 1971 he graduated from profession of "Chemical Technology of Oil and Gas Processing". In the same year he was hired as an engineer at the Institute of Petrochemical Processes of the ANAS. In 1980 he has defended Candidate's dissertation under the direction of Corresponding Member of ANAS N.M. Huseynov: "Research and development of the direct oxidation process of formaldehyde in the presence of silver catalysts in small-scale catalyst-based reactor".

In 1981 he was hired as an assistant to ASOİU by competition.

From 1981 to 2010 he worked as an assistant, docent in the department “Engineering bases” of the faculty “Chemical technology” of ASOİU, in 2010-2016 he has worked the head of the department “Development of mineral deposits”.Since 2016 he has been working the head of the department and as a professor "Petrochemical Technology and Industrial Ecology ”.

From 1989 to 1992 he represented the Republic of Azerbaijan in the Algerian People's Democratic Republic.

In 2010, by the Decree of the President  of Azerbaijan Republic , he was awarded the “Progress” medal for his effective work in education. AA Hasanov has 48 years of scientific and pedagogical experience.

A.A. Hasanov defended his doctoral dissertation in 2015 on "Development of scientific bases of technology of cleaning of automotive wastewater by liquid phase extraction", received a doctor of technical sciences degree.

The main directions of scientific activity of Professor  Hasanov A.A. are heterogeneous catalysis, oil and gas chemistry and technology of their processing, oil refining, processes and apparatus of petrochemical industry, mathematical modeling, ecology. A.A. Hasanov is the author of 170 scientific works, including 2 copyright certificates, 4 patents, 2 monographs, 20 textbooks, teaching aids and methodical manuals.

The department trains bachelors in the following specialties: 050641 - "Chemical Engineering", 050649 - "Environmental Engineering"  and masters are trained in  060641 - Chemical Engineering and 060649 - Environmental Engineering.

The department carries out scientific work on the theme: "Development and optimal design of the process of rational use of processing gases" of H.Aliyev refinery (2016-2020).

For the first time in the history of the University, the department of ''Petrochemical technology and industrial ecology" has established partnership relations with a number of manufacturing companies. He has signed production contracts with a number of businesses to enhance the student's internship opportunities.

Agreements have been signed with the Institute of Radiation Problems of ANAS, SOCAR and Kazakhstan TOO International Oil Services Kazakhstan, and Azersu JSC is on the eve of signing a contract with the Institute of Chemistry of ANAS.

Students studying at the department have internships at major companies such as SOCAR and BP and work on graduation and master's thesis on the organization and implementation of various production processes at these facilities.

The chemical engineer at BP - Kenan Tagiyev, has taught on the subject "Environmental Impact Assessment" at the Department of "Petrochemical Technology and Industrial Ecology".

Amin Mousavi Khanegah, PhD in nutrition at Campinas State University in Brazil, has conducted a number of faculties on academic writing and food security.

Currently 7 professors, 25 associate professors and 3 assistants are involved in the educational process.

The department has 6 teaching and 1 scientific research laboratory. There are 13 laboratory assistants. The department was established base chair at the Institute of Petrochemical Processes of ANAS. At the department, 21 people continue their scientific work on philosophy and four PhD programs.

In 2019 staff of the department published 76 articles, 14 textbooks and manuals, 6 patents, 35 theses.

At the department the purchase of alternative fuels from Azerbaijan's fossil fuels, the efficient use of gases at refineries, the acquisition of natural oils from oil, the study of oil and gas chemical waste, chemical industry and apparatus, environmental and oil industry and optimal design. research is underway.
