July PVC output in Russia grew by 1%

August 28/2013

MOSCOW (MRC) -- The total output of unmixed polyvinyl chloride (PVC) in Russia increased by 1% in July, despite an emergency shutdown of production at Khimprom (Volgograd) and reduced capacity utilisation at SayanskKhimplast, according to ScanPlast MRC.

The July production of unblended PVC (emulsion and suspension) in Russia rose to 53,830 tonnes from 53,200 tonnes in June. The increased capacity utilisation of the Bashkir Soda Company (formerly Kaustik (Sterlitamak) allowed to offset lower production at SayanskKhimplast and Khimprom (Volgograd).

The July production indices in volume terms are, as follows:

Russia"s largest PVC producer SayanskKhimplast reduced capacity utilisation by 5% last month, its PVC output fell to 26,600 tonnes. The Bashkir Soda Company increased its PVC capacity utilisation in July by 7% from June to 18,400 tonnes. Kaustik (Volgograd) kept the June"s level of capacity utilisation, its PVC production amounted to 7,870 tonnes.

As already mentioned, Russia"s only producer of emulsion PVC Khimprom (Volgograd)  was forced to stop production of polymer on 15 July because of the collapse of part of the roof at the vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) unit. The Volgograd plant produced less than 1,000 tonnes of emulsion PVC in less than a month period.

The overall output of unblended PVC in Russia totalled 381,700 tonnes in the first seven months of 2013, an increase of 3% year on year. The output of suspension PVC rose to 361,400 tonnes and, on the contrary, the production of emulsion PVC dropped to 10,000 tonnes.
