Polyef continues to implement the project for the production of "green" PET granules

April 26/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) - Blagoveshchensk Polyef continues to implement a project to launch the production of "green" PET pellets containing secondary raw materials, the company said.

The enterprise loaded the first pile into the base of the production foundation. It is planned to launch the line in the first half of 2022.

It is noted that the production of PET containing recycled resources is an important part of SIBUR's strategy for sustainable development until 2025. The technology that is planned to be used at Polief is environmentally friendly and belongs to the advanced methods of involving recycled PET in the production cycle.

The "green pellet" produced by Polyef will contain up to 25% recyclable materials and will meet the highest regulatory requirements, meeting the growing market demand for packaging using recycled materials, and will provide its manufacturers with a complete solution that combines both primary and secondary PET. SIBUR also continues research and development work in order to increase the proportion of secondary PET in pellets without losing quality in the future.

Now the collection of used PET bottles in Bashkiria is 4 thousand tons per year. When implementing a set of measures aimed at increasing collection and sorting, according to expert estimates, the potential volume may be 20 thousand tons per year.

Earlier it was reported that in December last year, SIBUR Holding (Moscow) signed the first contract for the supply of raw materials for the project for the production of "green" polyethylene terephthalate (PET) granules at the Polief enterprise in Blagoveshchensk (Republic of Bashkortostan).

According to MRC ScanPlast, in February of this year, the estimated consumption of PET in Russia decreased by 3% compared to the same indicator a year earlier and amounted to 53,890 tonnes. According to the results of January - February 2020, 100,830 tonnes of PET chips were processed in Russia.

PJSC "SIBUR Holding" is the largest petrochemical company in Russia and Eastern Europe with full coverage of the industry cycle from gas processing, production of monomers, plastics and synthetic rubbers to plastics processing.
