MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s overall production of high density polyethylene (HDPE) totalled 831,100 tonnes in the first five months of 2021, up by 7% year on year. At the same time, only one Russian producer increased its HDPE output, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

May total HDPE production in Russia grew to 177,600 tonnes, whereas this figure was at 147,700 tonnes a month earlier, all producers raised their capacity utilisation. Thus, overall HDPE output reached 831,100 tonnes in January-May 2021, compared to 778,400 tonnes a year earlier. Only ZapSibNeftekhim"s production increased, whereas three others reduced their output.

Kazanorgsintez"s total HDPE production grew to 38,600 tonnes last month from 29,000 tonnes in April, the increase in the output  was due to lower linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) production. Thus, overall HDPE output totalled 174,900 tonnes over the stated period, down by 23% year on year.

Stavrolen produced 26,300 tonnes of HDPE in May versus 26,900 tonnes a month earlier. Overall output of this PE grade exceeded 134,300 tonnes in the first five months of 2021, down by 1% year on year.

Gazprom neftekhim Salavat"s total HDPE production reached 11,400 tonnes last month, compared to 10,200 tonnes in April. Thus, the Salavat plant"s overall production of this PE grade totalled 48,900 tonnes in January-May 2021, down by 8% year on year.
