LONDON (ICIS)--The planned site of a surfactant manufacturing joint venture between Russia-based petrochemical firm SIBUR and France-based producer Rhodia has successfully passed an environmental assessment, SIBUR said on Monday.

The capacity and financing details for the plant in Dzerzhinsk, Russia, were not disclosed. According to a joint statement in April, the companies expect the plant to be operational in 2014.

The environmental assessment of the site was carried out by Golder Associates.
