The Russian producers reduced PP production in January by 2%

February 18/2011

MOSCOW (MRC) -- The Russian producers lowered overall polypropylene (PP) production in January 2% compared to December 2010 to the level of 56.6 KT, according to MRC ScanPlast.

A non-significant reduction of production was marked at Stavrolen (LUKOIL group)  and Tomskneftekhim (SIBUR Group). The main reason is increase of produced PP assortment. In other production sites the volumes of production remained in the level of December.

Tomskneftekhim (SIBUR Group) in October started production of new grades of homopolymer propylene. By February the enterprise mastered more than 15 new PP grades.

Stavrolen (LUKOIL group)  in January presented only one new grade for cast films production. The release of propylene copolymers is not excluded.

According to preliminary estimates, in February a non-significant reduction of PP production is expected in the Russian enterprises. It is stipulated by some technical problems in separate production sites.
