HDPE production in Russia up by 84% in H1 2020

July 28/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s production of high density polyethylene (HDPE) totalled 892,800 tonnes in the first six months of 2020, up by 84% year on year. ZapSibNeftekhim accounted for the main increase in the output, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

June HDPE production in Russia was 114,400 tonnes, whereas this figure was at 176,400 tonnes a month earlier, the largest producer - ZapSibNeftekhim - shut its production capacities for a scheduled maintenance. Thus, overall HDPE output in the country reached 892,800 tonnes in January-June 2020, compared to 486,400 tonnes a year earlier. All producers raised their output, but ZapSibNeftekhim accounted for the greatest increase.

After the Tobolsk plant, Gazprom neftekhim Salavat and Stavrolen showed good indicators of growth in the output of material over the stated period, these producers increased their HDPE production by 5% and 6%, respectively, to 163,900 tonnes and 64,400 tonnes.

Russia"s second largest polyethylene (PE) producer - Kazanorgsintez - accounted for a minimal increase in HDPE production: the output rose to 271,100 tonnes, up by 1% year on year. The growth in production of linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) was the main reason.
