Kaustik Volgograd shut PVC production
MOSCOW (MRC)–Volgograd Kaustik, Russia’s fourth largest polyvinyl chloride (PVC) producer, shut down its production for a scheduled turnaround, according to ICIS-MRC Price report.
A plant’s representative said PVC production was taken off-stream for scheduled repairs on 20 September. The outage will be quite long and will last for about 21 days. The plant’s annual production capacity is 90,000 tonnes.
This is the last shutdown for a scheduled maintenance at Russian PVC plants in 2021. SayanskKhimPlast and Bashkir Soda Company shut their production capacities in June-July. RusVinyl does not plan to carry out maintenance works this year.
