Penoplex to resume GPPS production in Kirishi on 5 September

September 03/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Penoplex, Russia"s largest producer of extruded polystyrene foam, plans to resume general purpose polystyrene (GPPS) production at its Kirishi plant on 5 September, according to ICIS-MRC Price report.

This plant with a capacity of 50,000 tonnes of GPPS per year was shut for maintenance on 5 August 2019.

There was an acute shortage of material, including GPPS, in the Russian polystyrene (PS) market in late August, which was partially caused by the outage at the Kirishi plant.

In addition, the resumption of Gazprom neftekhim Salavat"s GPPS production after a scheduled turnaround was delayed for several weeks. The plant�s production capacities were taken off-stream for maintenance in July, and premium GPPS grades had not yet entered the market as of the end of last week.

Penoplex is a large Russian producer of polymer-based building and decorative materials. The company began its activity in 1998 with the launch of Russia"s first line for the production of heat-insulating materials from extruded polystyrene foam under the PENOPLEX trademark. The company has eight production sites, seven of which are located in Russia and one - in the Republic of Kazakhstan (Almaty region), with a total production capacity of 4 million cubic metres.
