Nouryon to supply CiD technology to Ukrainian PVC producer

February 05/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Nouryon (formerly AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals) will license its innovative continuous initiator dosing (CiD) technology to Karpatnaftochim, Ukraines largest polyvinyl chloride (PVC) producer, as per the company's press release.

Nouryons patented CiD technology allows PVC producers to increase reactor output by up to 40 percent, improve product quality, and make the production process intrinsically safer all with minimum capital expenditure.

"The agreement with Karpatnaftochim once again confirms our strong offering to customers in the PVC market," said Johan Landfors, Managing Director Polymer Chemistry. "Many customers have made the shift to CiD technology, and we expect interest for this technology to continue to grow as more users realize its advantages."

In conventional PVC production, the organic peroxide initiator is added in one step - this generates a lot of heat and the reactor output is determined by the cooling capacity. With CiD technology, the initiator is added continuously, reducing the amount of heat produced, making the process safer and increasing the effective capacity of the reactor. 

Ivan Pidsadyuk, General Director of Karpatnaftochim, added: "Nouryons CiD technology introduces unique benefits for us and our customers. As an important manufacturer in a competitive market, we aim to incorporate solutions that give us an advantage."

As reported earlier, Karpatneftekhim resumed operations on 9 June 2017, after a five-year outage.

Karpatneftekhim is one of the largest enterprises of Ukraine's petrochemical complex. Currently, the plant can produce annually 300,000 tonnes of PVC, 200,000 tonnes of caustic soda, about 180,000 tonnes of chlorine, as well as 250,000 tonnes of ethylene and 100,000 tonnes of polyethylene.
