Sibur starts full production of TPEs at its Voronezh Site

"The new facility proceeds to operate in the production and maintenance mode," says Viktor Kuklinov, CEO of Voronezhsintezkauchuk. "From now on, the consumers will receive extra volumes of cutting-edge polymer materials for the road building industry and roof coatings." The Russian company commenced the start-up and commissioning operations at the new facility on 23 May 2013, with the event attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Sibur said in a note to the announcement that the planned 85,000 t TPE capacity of the Voronezh facility is enough to produce more than 2 million t of polymer-modified asphalt cements, which in turn is equivalent to more than 20,000 km of four-lane highways - over 50 % of Russia's federal highway network.
