PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim Ethylene Production Plant (EP-450) still remains unique in Russia, that has no equals in our country. It was built in record time - main equipment installation took only 14 months. The first modernization of the EP-450 Complex was completed in 1981. One more reconstruction which took place in 1988-1992 allowed to increase the capacity from 450 up to 485 thousand tons of ethylene per year. In 2011 the reconstruction and modernization of Ethylene production facilities resulted in increase in capacity up to 600 thousand tons of ethylene per year. Ethylene plant of Nizhnekamskneftekhim produced its 17-millionth ton of ethylene in July, 2017

Now the annual production of ethylene amounts to 616 thousand tons.  It was the result of putting into operation of two new pyrolysis furnaces of the SRT-VI type.  The history of the plant began with furnaces of the SRT-II type, and now they are replaced by the new type Production capacity and environmental safety are not the only highlights of the new equipment. This project allowed to improve performance reliability of the furnace unit, as well as reduce the amount of flue-gas emissions into the atmosphere.
