MOSCOW (ICIS)--?xml:namespace>Russia’s total plastic and synthetic resin production was up by 8.9% year on year at 3.5m tonnes in January-August 2011, Russian statistics agency Rosstat said on Friday.
The country’s overall output of synthetic rubber was up by 8.3% at 950,000 tonnes, according to the agency. Russia’s total fibres and yarns production was up by 7.5% at 93,700 tonnes, said Rosstat.
Earlier in September, Russia’s industry and trade ministry said in an overview of the country’s chemical sector that since the beginning of 2011 plastics output was increasing. It said this was a result of strong performance by major domestic producers including Nizhnekamskneftekhim (NKNKh), Tomskneftekhim and Gazprom Neftekhim Salavat. NKNKh also increased its synthetic rubber production.
Fibres and yarns output was up because of the stable operations of Kurskhimvolokno and Sibur-Volzhsky plants, the ministry said.
