Russian producers increased PVC production by 75% in October

November 26/2012

MOSCOW (MRC) -- In October, Russian makers increased PVC output to 57,600 tonnes, up 75% from September. Over the past ten months, the growth of PVC output in Russia made about 500,000 tonnes, according to MRC ScanPlast.

In October, Russian producers increased PVC production (suspension and emulsion) to 57,600 tonnes, up 75% from September. Such a low index in September was due to a scheduled outage for maintenance at Sayanskkhimplast in September and the forced reduction of capacity utilization following the limited supply of ethylene from Kaustic (Sterlitamak). Last month, Sayanskkhimplast and Kaustic (Sterlitamak) showed record production volumes.

In October, Sayanskkhimplast produced record 27,000 tonnes of suspension PVC. In 2011, the plant produced 259,300 tonnes of PVC and, in 2012, the facility is going to increase the production volume by 4% to the level of 270,000 tonnes. Sayanskkhimplast is conducting a scheduled reconstruction and modernization of the polymer complex. By 2014, the company plans to increase its production capacity of suspension PVC up to 350,000 tonnes. Kaustic (Sterlitamak) also increased its capacity utilization after September restrictions of ethylene supply. The plant produced over 19,000 tonnes of the resin, which is two times higher compared to September.

In general, over the past ten months, the total production volume of PVC in Russia made about 500,000 tonnes, up 8% year-on-year. The output of suspension PVC grew to the level of 482,900 tonnes, up 8% year-on-year. All Russian makers increased production volume of suspension this year with the exception of Kaustic (Volgograd).

The only producer of emulsion PVC, Khimprom (Volgograd), keeps decreasing its output. Over the past ten months, the production volume of emulsion declined to 17,200 tonnes, down 5% year-on-year.
