Gazprom neftekhim Salavat will build first production of superabsorbent polymers in Russia

October 26/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Gazprom neftekhim Salavat will build Russia"s first production of superabsorbent polymers Gazprom neftekhim Salavat has signed an agreement for the development of a basic design and a license agreement for the use of Songwon Industrial technology for the production of superabsorbent polymers (SAP), said the company.

The company will continue the chain of converting acrylates into superabsorbent polymers at its production site. In Salavat, crude acrylic acid, butyl acrylate and glacial acrylic acid are already being produced at the facilities of the acrylic acid and butyl acrylate production complex commissioned in 2017. In the production of products, we use our own raw materials - propylene from EP-355 and butanol from shop No. 52.
The production of SAP will be a logical continuation of the development of acrylate processing. In addition, superabsorbents based on acrylic polymers are included in the �Action Plan for Import Substitution of the Chemical Industry of the Russian Federation� approved by order of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia dated 06.07.2021 No. 2471. The implementation of the import-substituting project will allow the company to cover 60-70% of the needs for superabsorbents in Russia. Investments in a new project with a capacity of 45 thousand tons / year will be approximately Rb11 bn.

According to ICIS-MRC Price report, GNS resumed the production of LDPE after the scheduled maintenance works from 1 October. The outage was quite long and started from 20 July. The plant"s annual production capacity is 45,000 tonnes.

OAO "Gazprom neftekhim Salavat" (formerly OAO "Salavatnefteorgsintez") is one of the leading petrochemical companies in Russia, carrying out a full cycle of processing hydrocarbon material. The list of products manufactured by the plant includes more than 140 items, including 76 grades of the main products: gasoline, diesel fuel, kerosene, fuel oil, toluene, solvent, liquefied gases, benzene, styrene, ethylbenzene, butyl alcohols, phthalic anhydride and plasticizers, polyethylene, polystyrenes, silica gels and zeolite catalysts, corrosion inhibitors, elemental sulfur, ammonia and urea, glycols and amines, a wide range of household products made of plastics, surfactants and much more.
