Ethylene plant of Nizhnekamskneftekhim produced its 17-millionth ton of ethylene.
Ethylene-450 plant with a capacity of 450 thousand tons per year produced its first product ethylene in June 1976. On the 31st of August of the same year the State Commission signed the commissioning report.
The first stage of reconstruction and modernization of Ethylene production facilities, which was launched in 1988-1992, resulted in increase in capacity up to 485 thousand tons of ethylene per year. The second stage of reconstruction which took place in 2002 – 2009 allowed to increase the design capacity up to 600 thousand tons of ethylene per year. Now the annual production of ethylene amounts to 607 thousand tons.
Since the start-up the plant has processed 57.6 million tons of pyrolysis feedstock and produced more than 33.8 million tons of core products, including ethylene, propylene, divinyl and benzene.
Nizhnekamskneftekhim representatives took part in the V International Polymer Technology Forum (IPTF) held in St. Petersburg in June.
Marat Fatykhov, the Head of the Polymers Promotion Division, has delivered the report on "Product line-up of Nizhnekamskneftekhim". He shared information on the company's development of new polypropylene grades (high-fluid grades of random copolymers and block copolymers, impact-resistant and frost-resistant propylene copolymers), polyethylene (for casting covers and caps, for rotational molding) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE).
The Company continues to work on substitution of imported grades of propylene copolymers. Their combined share in the total polypropylene output has increased from 58% in 2014 to 86% in 2016. The Company plans to develop bimodal block copolymer.
The key direction in the production of Nizhnekamsk polyethylene is to increase the output of LLDPE. In this regard, the Company specialists are working to expand the grades assortment of this type of polyethylene, including grades suitable for rotational molding, blow molding and multilayer film production. For this purpose, direct contracts will be signed with stretch film manufacturers.
During the discussion with technical experts of processing companies, discussed were the quality indicators and applications of the already existing plastic grades produced at Nizhnekamskneftekhim. At the same time, the Company's significant contribution to the replacement of imported polymers and the high quality of Nizhnekamsk plastics were noted.
Delegation of PJSC "Nizhnekamskneftekhim" led by Vladimir Busygin, chairman of the board of directors, Azat Bikmurzin, general director, and Timur Shigabutdinov, deputy general director - commercial director, held a meeting with the top management of Michelin in Clermont-Ferrand (France). On the part of Michelin, Jean-Dominique Senard, president and CEO of the company, took part in the meeting, and Jean Christophe Guerin, senior vice-president – executive committee member, Luc Muenge, vice-president for global procurement, Laszlo Toth, vice president, raw materials procurement.
The parties discussed cooperation issues paying special attention to the strategy of its development including the supply of new brands of synthetic rubbers developed by Nizhnekamskneftekhim. Cooperation in this area is based on high technical potential of Michelin in the production of high-quality tires and the 50-year experience of Nizhnekamskneftekhim in the history of synthetic rubber production. At the meeting, the contract was signed for supply of synthetic rubber.
Nizhnekamskneftekhim representatives visited the R&D center of Michelin, the field test site and the museum of the company.
