MOSCOW (MRC)–Imports of polypropylene (PP) into Belarus increased to about 106,400 tonnes in first eleven months of this year, up 1.5% year on year, with the greatest increase in homopolymer PP, according to MRC DataScope.

November PP imports into Belarus dropped to 9,000 tonnes from 9,100 tonnes a month earlier, with local companies increased their purchases of injection moulding propylene copolymers in Russia, while homopolymers flows were steady over the same period at a little under 6,800 tonnes

November imports of propylene copolymers to Belarus were about  2,200 tonnes versus 2,300 tonnes a month earlier, as local companies decreased significantly their procurement of injection moulding block-copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymer) from Russian producers.
