PVC production in Russia rose 26% in the first seven months of 2017

August 16/2017
MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s overall production of unmixed polyvinyl chloride (PVC) grew in the first seven months of 2017 by 26% year on year, totalling 530,800 tonnes. All plants, except for Bashkir Soda Company, increased their output of resin, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report. 

July production of unmixed PVC in Russia dropped to 63,100 tonnes from 81,200 tonnes a month earlier, SayanskKhimplast and Bashkir Soda Company reduced their output because of scheduled shutdowns for maintenance. Overall PVC production reached 530,800 tonnes in January-July 2017, compared to 421,100 tonnes a year earlier. Only three plants out of four increased their output, and this year"s high level of production growth was caused by the long forced outage at SayanskKhimPlast in February-July 2016.

The structure of PVC production by plants looked the following way over the stated period.

RusVinyl (joint venture of SIBUR and SolVin) produced 24,700 tonnes of PVC in July, with 2,200 tonnes accounting for emulsion polyvinyl chloride (EPVC), compared to 25,400 tonnes a month earlier. Thus, RusVinyl"s overall production of resin reached 180,500 tonnes in the first seven months of 2017 versus 180,100 tonnes a year earlier.

SayanskKhimPlast shut down its production capacities for a 30-day turnaround on 24 July. Thus, the plant"s overall output reached 19,700 tonnes for the incomplete July, compared to 26,700 tonnes a month earlier. SayanskKhimPlast managed to produce 156,000 tonnes of resin over the stated period versus 42,800 tonnes a year earlier (the low output in 2016 was caused by the forced long outage from mid-February to July).

Bashkir Soda Company also shut down its production capacities for a two-week maintenance last month (the outage began on 15 July), the plant"s PVC output fell to 10,800 tonnes from 21,600 tonnes in July. The Bashkir plant"s PVC production totalled 140,700 tonnes in the first seven months of 2017, compared to 148,700 tonnes a year earlier. 

Kaustik (Volgograd) slightly increased its production last month, the plant"s suspension PVC (SPVC) output slightly exceeded 7,900 tonnes versus 7,300 tonnes in June. The plant"s overall production of resin reached 53,600 tonnes over the stated period, compared to 49,400 tonnes a year earlier.
