According to NKNKh, the facility has a capacity to produce 60,000 tonnes/year of ABS.
NKNKh previously expected the ABS unit to start operation in November 2012. However, the facility was only test-launched on 24 November last year.
Based in Tatarstan, central Russia, NKNKh is the country's major petrochemical manufacturer. It produces more than half of Russia's total styrene and butyl rubber output, and nearly half of the country's isoprene rubber and polystyrene (PS) output.
