PVC production in Russia up by 5% in Jan-Aug 2021

September 13/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s overall production of unmixed polyvinyl chloride (PVC) totalled 664,100 tonnes in the first eight months of 2021, up by 5% year on year. Three producers increased their output, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

August production of unmixed PVC increased to 83,600 tonnes versus 64,600 tonnes a month earlier, the increase in production was caused by the end of scheduled turnarounds at two producers, which took place in July. Overall output of polymer totalled 664,100 tonnes in January-August 2021, compared to 632,200 tonnes a year earlier. Three producers raised their output, whereas one manufacturer maintained its last year"s production.

The structure of PVC production by plants looked the following way over the stated period.

RusVinyl produced 24,200 tonnes of PVC in August, with emulsion polyvinyl chloride (EPVC) accounting for 2,200 tonnes, compared to 31,700 tonnes a month earlier, technical issues led to lower capacity utilisation. RusVinyl"s overall output of resin exceeded 231,100 tonnes in the first eight months of 2021, compared to 216,600 tonnes a year earlier. Higher production was mainly caused by the absence of a shutdown for maintenances this year.

Sayanskkhimplast significantly increased its capacity utilisation last month and produced slightly over 28,000 tonnes of suspension PVC (SPVC) versus 14,200 tonnes in July, the low July figure was caused by a shutdown for maintenance. The Sayansk plant managed to produce 199,100 tonnes of PVC in January-August 2021, compared to 188,700 tonnes a year earlier.

The Bashkir Soda Company (BSK) produced 24,000 tonnes in August, compared to 11,600 tonnes a month earlier, the low July figure was also caused by a two-week turnaround. Baskhir Soda Company"s overall output of resin reached 176,200 tonnes in January-August 2021, which corresponds to the last year"s figure.

Kaustik (Volgograd) produced 7,400 tonnes of SPVC last month, whereas this figure was 7,100 tonnes in July. The plant"s overall production of resin reached 57,700 tonnes over the stated period versus 50,800 tonnes a year earlier.
