KSTOVO, RUSSIA: The RusVinyl inaugurated its polyvinyl chloride (PVC) production facility in Kstovo (Nizhny Novgorod Region), ranking among Russia’s largest petrochemical investment projects. RusVinyl is a joint venture between Sibur and SolVin.

This greenfield project, with an investment exceeding RUB 60 billion (€ 1.4 billion), entirely complies with Russia’s strictest environmental regulations. Thanks to cutting-edge vinyl technology, fully automated production and state-of-the-art equipment, the facility’s environmental footprint is marginal. Each section of the facility has multi-tier safety systems. An advanced membrane method prevents hazardous substances from being formed during electrolysis. Finally, RusVinyl uses a patented technology that makes electrolysis completely waste-free.

“Sibur has increased its production capacity of ethylene in Kstovo, which guarantees the supply of the raw material to the new PVC complex. This has ensured the creation of a new, competitive and cutting edge industrial facility. The best global practices and technologies have been introduced to the Russian market due to the realisation of the latest large scale investment project. The new petrochemical facility will beneficially impact Russia’s economic development by meeting the challenge of import substitution,” said Leonid Mikhelson, Chairman of Board of Directors, Sibur.
