Sibur launched EPS, ethylbenzene and styrene production

November 09/2010

(Sibur) -- Today the company Sibur-Khimprom held a ceremonial launch for three interrelated products Ц Alphapor ethylbenzene, styrene and expandable polystyrene. The total investment in the renovation and construction of new capacity was more than 8 billion rubles.

The reconstruction of the styrene production facility gave an increase in productivity of 100,000 tonnes per year to 135,000 tonnes per year. During reconstruction, production was transferred to vacuum dehydration thereby reducing consumption of the raw material Ц ethylbenzene, as well as reducing energy consumption.

The new production of Alphapor expandable polystyrene with a capacity of 50,000 tonnes was built by the Austro-Norwegian technology company Sunpor. The new product of European quality will be produced in Russia for the first time.

All the brands of expandable polystyrene meet stringent European standards for fire safety, grain composition, density and physical-mechanical characteristics. The brands of expandable polystyrene designed for the manufacture of building insulation will necessarily contain flame retardants preventing the spread of fire.
