Russia"s overall PP production reached 1,063,700 tonnes in January-July 2020, compared to 854,500 tonnes a year earlier. Five out of eight producers raised their capacity utilisation, with a new producer - ZapSibNeftekhim - accounting for the main increase in the output.

ZapSibNeftekhim, the second Tobolsk manufacturer, produced 39,100 tonnes of PP in July versus 20,100 tonnes in June, when there was a scheduled two-week shutdown for maintenance. The plant"s overall output totalled 241,700 tonnes in the first seven months of 2020.
