SIBUR to improve polybutadiene rubber production efficiency in Voronezh

February 14/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- SIBUR has decided to launch an investment project aimed at enhancing polybutadiene rubber (Nd-BR) production efficiency at its Voronezh facility (Voronezhsintezkauchuk), as per the company's press release.

The project will involve a large-scale upgrade to boost operational efficiency of the existing facility and ensure a consistently high quality of the manufactured goods. A 13 ktpa capacity ramp-up will increase total capacity to 48 ktpa and enable the Company to meet the strong demand for Nd-BR in the target markets of the CIS and Europe.

Currently, the project is at the design stage, with completion slated for 2021.

NIPIgaspererabotka, a leading Russian centre for facility design, supply, logistics and construction, was selected as the general designer for the project. Russian contractors will also be engaged for the construction and commissioning works.

In addition to boasting enhanced durability and wear resistance, Nd-BR is an environmentally friendly and energy-efficient grade, which guarantees a better quality of rubber products, does not contain harmful oligomers and can be used as an up-and-coming feedstock for the production of eco-friendly tires. In 2018, Nd-BR rubber from SUBURs Voronezh facility won a prize at the XXI Voronezh Quality contest (regional stage of the 100 Best Goods of Russia nationwide competition) in the nomination for Industrial and Technical Goods.

As MRC wrote before, in June 2018, SIBUR said its plans to build a gas chemical complex in Russia's Far East will require preliminary investments of up to USD8 billion and it is still looking for Asian partners. SIBUR said a year ago that it had been in talks with a number of Chinese investors about participating in the project to build the complex in Amur.

SIBUR is a uniquely positioned vertically integrated gas processing and petrochemicals company. We own and operate Russias largest gas processing business in terms of associated petroleum gas processing volumes and are a leader in the Russian petrochemicals industry. As of 31 March 2014, SIBUR operated 27 production sites located all over Russia, had over 1,400 large customers engaged in the energy, chemical, fast moving consumer goods (FMCG), automotive, construction and other industries in approximately 70 countries worldwide and employed over 27,000 personnel.
