June 02/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- SIBUR -Neftekhim and Linde Gas Rus signed agreements on implementation in 2021-2022. a project for the utilization of carbon dioxide (CO2) generated in the technological process of the Sibur enterprise in Dzerzhinsk, the company said.

SIBUR -Neftekhim will build an infrastructure for the transportation to the Linde Gas Rus site of crude CO2 obtained as a by-product in the process of ethylene oxide synthesis. In turn, Linde Gas Rus will build a unit to bring the quality of this gas to the level of a commercial product, applicable, among other things, in the food industry, and will sell it to end consumers.

Thus, it is planned to utilize about 25 thousand tons of 100% CO2 annually. All work, including at the SIBUR production site, will be performed by Linde Gas Rus under an EPC contract.

The implementation of the project is an integral part of SIBUR's sustainable development strategy, which provides for a 15% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2025.

Earlier it was reported that production problems arose at the SIBUR ethylene glycol production facility in Dzerzhinsk at the end of February. Market sources said the problems were resolved in the middle of the week by 1 March.

Ethylene and propylene are the main feedstocks for the production of PE and PP, respectively.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 576,270 tonnes in the first three month of 2021, up by 4% year on year. Low density polyethylene (LDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) shipments increased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market totalled 410,890 tonnes in January-March 2021, up by 56% year on year. Supply of homopolymer PP and PP block copolymers increased.
