MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s overall polyethylene (PE) production totalled 2,449,0000 tonnes in the first ten months of 2020, up by 68% year on year. Linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) accounted for the greatest increase in the output, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

October PE production in Russia was 244,900 tonnes, whereas this figure was 233,200 tonnes a month earlier, in the first month of autumn several producers stopped their capacities for repairs at once.

Production of all PE grades rose, but LLDPE accounted for the greatest increase, which was provided by ZapSibNeftekhim.

Russian plants" overall HDPE output reached 1,505,800 tonnes in January-October 2020, up by 104% year on year.

October total low density polyethylene (LDPE) production increased to 50,900 tonnes from 28,300 tonnes in September, as Ufaorgsintez, Tomskneftekhim and Kazanorgsintez shut their facilities for scheduled maintenance works. Thus, overall production of this PE grade totalled 519,100 tonnes over the stated period, down by 2% year on year.

October LLDPE production rose to 53,800 tonnes from 48,700 tonnes a month earlier, ZapSibNeftekhim increased its capacity utilisation.
