PE production in Belarus rose by 10% in Jan-Aug 2018

September 11/2018
MOSCOW (MRC) -- Belarus"s overall production of low density polyethylene (LDPE) totalled 42,800 tonnes in the first eight months of 2018, up by 10% year on year, reported MRC analysts.
According to the National Statistics Committee of Belarus, the local LDPE producer - Polymir reduceded its capacity utilisation in August and produced slightly over 5,500 tonnes of polyethylene (PE) versus 6,200 tonnes a month earlier. Thus, Polymir"s total LDPE output was slightly over 42,800 tonnes in January-August 2018, compared to 38,900 tonnes a year earlier.

As reported earlier, the Belarusian producer plans to reach full capacity utilisation at its PE production by late November. Because of the fire at the ethylene unit in June 2016, Polymir was forced to reduce its capacity utilisation at LDPE production by almost two-fold.

Polymir (part of Naftan) is Belarus" largest petrochemical company, producing a wide range of chemical products, such as low density polyethylene (LDPE), acrylic fibers, products of organic synthesis, hydrocarbon fractions, etc. Polymir was founded in 1968.
The producer uses technologies of the largest foreign companies from Great Britain, Japan, Germany, Italy (Courtaulds, Asahi Chemical Co. Ltd, Kanematsu Gosho, SNIA BPD, etc.), as well as the developments of scientific research institutes and design institutes of the CIS countries. The plant"s annual production capacity is 130,000 tonnes.
