May 13/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Kazanorgsintez (part of TAIF Group) has begun a gradual restart of its low density polyethylene (LDPE) production capacities after shutdown for a scheduled turnaround, according to ICIS-MRC Price Report.

The plant"s representatives said consecutive works on resuming operations at Kazanorgsintez"s 3rd LDPE line began on 5 May. The full shutdown of this LDPE line was carried out on 12 April, and the full capacity utilisation was expected to be reached by the end of last week. The third line"s production capacity is 140,000 tonnes/year.

It is also worth noting that next shutdowns for maintenance at Russian LDPE plants are scheduled for July. Thus, Angarsk Polymers Plant and Gazprom neftekhim Salavat will take off-stream their production capacities for turnarounds.

To date, the plant produces PE, polycarbonate (PC), PE pipes, phenol, acetone, bisphenol A. Kazanorgsintez is Russia"s only PC producer. It manufactures a total of 170 items of products. Kazanorgsintez"s annual output is 1.6 million tonnes. The plant is Russia"s largest producer of high density polyethylene (HDPE). The plant"s annual HDPE production capacity is 540,000 tonnes and its annual LDPE capacity is 225,000 tonnes.
