PVC production in Russia increased by 5% from January to November 2014

December 30/2014

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s overall production of unmixed polyvinyl chloride (suspension and emulsion PVC) rose by 5% over the first eleven months of 2014. The increased output was largerly due to the commissioning of new plant in the Nizhny Novgorod region, according to MRC ScanPlast report.

The overall November production of unmixed PVC in Russia rose to 70,000 tonnes from 48,100 tonnes (scheduled outages for maintenance of two suspension PVC (SPVC)producers - Bashkir Soda Company (BSC) and Kaustik (Volgograd). The overall PVC output of Russian producers increased to 589,100 tonnes from January to November 2014 versus 561,400 tonnes a year earlier. The increased production was caused by a start-up of a new plant in the Nizhny Novgorod region (RusVinyl), BSC also accounted for a considerable increase in production.

The PVC production structure by producers looks the following way over the stated period.

SayanskKhimplast produced 24,900 tonnes of PVC in November versus 26,500 tonnes in October. The plant"s overall PVC output dropped by 1% from January to November 2014 and reached 258,100 tonnes.

Bashkir soda company produced 17,700 tonnes of PVC last month compared to 8,900 tonnes in October (because of a two-week shutdown for a turnaround). Due to the increased capacity to 230,000 tonnes per year, BSC raised its production to 200,800 tonnes over the first eleven months of 2014 versus 193,500 tonnes a year earlier. Next year the producer plans to increase its capacity to 240,000 tonnes per year.

Kaustik (Volgograd) produced 7,800 tonnes of SPVC in November, whereas in October the figure was 3,300 tonnes because of nearly a three-week outage for maintenance. The plant increased its PVC output over the said period to 82,900 tonnes from 81,800 tonnes a year earlier.

Volgograd Khimprom completely shut down its production of emulsion PVC (EPVC) in early November because of economic inefficiency, the plant managed to produce a little more than 100 tonnes of resin during a few days of operation. According to unofficial information, the plant"s PVC production will never be resumed. The plant"s overall PVC production totalled 15,300 tonnes over the first eleven months of 2014.

RusVinyl (JV of SIBUR and SolVin) increased its capacity utilisation in November, the plant"s November production rose to 17,500 tonnes from 8,000 tonnes in October. The overall RusVinyl"s SPVC production totalled 31,900 tonnes from September to November 2014. The plant"s annual capacity is 330,000 tonnes.
