(MRC) -- The index of chemical production in Russia over the nine months increased by 6.6%. All products, except for caustic soda, showed the growth of production. The largest increase was recorded in the sector of production of plastics in initial forms, according to MRC ScanPlast.

The index of chemical production over the nine months made 106.6%, compared with the same period in 2010, including in September Ц 101.6%. In January-September 2011, there was observed an increase in production of styrene polymers in initial forms, propylene and other olefins in initial forms, synthetic rubber, synthetic filaments, mineral fertilizers, polymers of ethylene in initial forms. The production of caustic soda, on the contrary, decreased.

In January-September, production of mineral fertilizers (calculated as 100% of nutrients) grew by 5.6% year on year and made 14,063 million tonnes, including nitrogen fertilizers Ц 7.6%, phosphorus fertilizers - 4.6%, potassium fertilizers - 3.9%. Total production of caustic soda over the nine months decreased by 4.7% to 750,000 tonnes (calculated as 100% of the basic material), which was due to decreased consumption of chlorine by JSC Caustic (Sterlitamak).

In January-September, the production of polymers in initial forms increased by 8.1% and made 3,956 million tonnes. The greatest increase in production showed the polymers of styrene in initial forms - 15.3%, which made more than 193,000 tonnes. Total production of polypropylene increased by 11.8% (510,000 tonnes), polymers of ethylene in initial forms - by 5.1% (1,15 million tonnes). The production of PVC has reached 411,000 tonnes.

Over the nine months, output of rubber and plastic products increased by 15.1% year on year, including this September Ц by 7%. When excluding seasonal and calendar factors, last month there was 0.7% decline in the production of rubber and plastic products compared with August.
