      Russian fibre and yarn output rose in January-July

      In January-July 2010, Russia’s chemical production rose by 18.4% compared with the same period in 2009, reports the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade. The output of rubber and plastic products grew by 22.4%. The output of coatings was up by 23.2% year-on-year. The production of chemical fibres and yarns amounted to 68,000 tonnes in January-July, a 22.2% increase from a year earlier. The growth can be attributed to a gradual increase in consumption and the relatively low 2009 benchmark. The output of textile yarns increased by 46.4%, technical yarns by 2.5 times, cord yarns by 18.7%, and staple fibre by 5.2%.

      The output of virgin ethylene-based polymers amounted to 918,700 tonnes in January-July (up by 13.4% y-o-y) owing to expanded output by Stavrolen (+43.8%); Angarsk Polymer Plant (+40.5%); Kazanorgsintez (+10.5%). The output of virgin propylene-based polymers and other polyolefins in January-July declined by 17.5% compared with January-July of 2009 due to a scheduled overhaul at NPP Neftekhimiya.

      The output of PVC amounted to 369,900 tonnes in January-July (+13.5%). Expanded output was posted by Nizhnekamskneftekhim (+16.1%); OAO Plastic (+97.6%), Angarsk Polymer Plant (+0.8%). The output of chemical and mineral fertilisers in January-July is estimated at about 10.4 million tonnes, up by 28.1% year-on-year.
