Russian producers of polypropylene left capacity utilization at rollover from the January

March 16/2012

MOSCOW (MRC) -- In February, Russian producers of polypropylene left capacity utilization at rollover from the January. The total volume of polypropylene production made slightly more than 48,000 tonnes, according to MRC SkanPlast.

Last month, Russian producers of polypropylene left the capacity utilization at rollover from the January. The total production of polypropylene made 48,140 tonnes. In January, this figure was 48,650 tonnes. In February, Russian producers reduced the production of raffia and switched to the injection moulding grades of homopolymer of propylene. Volumes of production of propylene copolymers also decreased.


This year, three Russian producers increased the level of capacity utilization. The volume of polypropylene production at Ufaorgsyntez grew by 29% due to the use of external supplies of feedstock. Tomskneftekhim and Petrochemicals did not increase production so significantly: by 9% and 2%, respectively.

Over the weekend, the third largest Russian producer of polypropylene Stavrolen began working on a shortened schedule. Earlier this week, there were produced first lots of the injection moulding polypropylene, but the company still does not force the events. The shipments of polypropylene in the domestic market are not underway yet .


Because of the accident on December 15, 2011 at the gas distribution unit, company had to switch to imported propylene, which affects the level of capacity utilization.
At the end of the second quarter a new production at the Polyom site in Omsk is expected to be launched with a capacity of 120,000 tonnes per year on technology of LyondellBasell.
