August GPPS and HIPS production fell in Russia by 19%

September 20/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russian plants reduced their output of general purpose polystyrene (GPPS) and high impact polystyrene (HIPS) in August 2019 by 19% year on year to 27,280 tonnes, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

This figure was at 33,5400 tonnes in August 2018.

Russia"s August GPPS and HIPS production decreased by 15% from July 2019.

Last month"s reduction in Russia"s polystyrene (PS) production was mainly caused by a long launch of the standard output at Gazprom neftekhim Salavat after a period of shutdown for maintenance and by the shutdown for a turnaround at Penoplex"s plant in Kirishi from 5 August to 13-14 September.

PS production slightly increased in the Russian market in January-August 2019. Thus, the increase was 1% year on year: 251,690 tonnes versus 248,150 tonnes a year earlier.
