PVC production in Russia grew by 3% in the nine months of 2013

October 10/2013

MOSCOW (MRC) - Russian producers increased their production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) by 3% in the nine months of this year, despite a complete shutdown at the site of SIBUR, according to MRC ScanPlast.

September output of unmixed PVC  (suspension and emulsion) in Russia exceeded the level of 51,000 tonnes. In general, Russian production of PVC totalled about 454,400 tonnes in January - August, against 442,500 tonnes in the same period of 2012.

The increase in production in Sayansk, Sterlitamak and Volgograd allowed to compensate a complete shutdown of the capacities at the site of SIBUR-Neftekhim in April of this year.

Production of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) exceeded the level of 442,000 tonnes in the nine months of this year, while in 2012 this figure was about 426,500 tonnes. Industry leader - SayanskKhimPlast increased its PVC production to 206,000 tonnes over the reported period with an increase of 7%. Bashkir Soda Company (formerly Kaustik (Sterlitamak)) improved its production to 155,700 tonnes against 144,000 year on year. KAUSTIK (Volgograd), traditionally shuts on the turnaround in April - May, but this year it shifted the maintenance works to September - October, as a result, its production of SPVC in January - September totalled more than 70,000 tonnes, from 63,300 tonnes year on year.

The only Russian producer of emulsion polyvinyl chloride (EPVC) - Khimprom (Volgograd) significantly worsened its output. Producer has decreased its production to 12,300 tonnes against 16,100 tonnes because of the emergency shutdown in mid-July (the roof cave-in in the workshop of vinyl chloride monomer production), and the deterioration of the equipment.
