The company raised its phenol capacity up to 100,000 tonnes/year, and acetone capacity up to 62,000 tonnes/year, SANORS said in a statement on 21 August. It was not confirmed what the previous capacities were.
The expansion process took place in 2010-2013. The new capacity will be used to supply customers in central Russia, it added.
Total investment in the modernisation and capacity increase of its units was over roubles (Rb) 973m (€22m), SANORS said.
In October 2012, SANORS, formerly known as Samaraorgsintez, started operation of its new 300,000 tonnes/year tertiary amyl methyl ether (TAME) facility that cost around €18m to build. Last year, SANORS produced 59,700 tonnes of TAME.
SANORS also plans to build a major petrochemical complex at its premises to produce up to 1m tonnes/year of polyolefins.
