Participants of Moscow international chemical summit are invited to Ufa to join the forum “Big Chemistry”
The VIII international chemical summit started working in Moscow on Thursday, March 17, in Moscow. The deputy Prime-Minister of the Government RB Uri Pustovgarov has taken the floor with the report. The Vice-Premier was talking about state and prospects of oil-chemical production and consumption in the region. He suggested that an oil-chemical cluster should be founded in the region.
“The shortage of the stuff for ethylene production is the main problem, preventing full-fledged development of the oil-chemical complex in Volga federal district” – the Vice-Premier reported. Its regular deliveries are possible only if to construct a product pipeline from Siberia. In opinion of Uri Pustovgarov it can become an incentive for further wide-scaled modernization and development of oil chemistry not only in Bashkiria but in Volga federal district in a whole.
Uri Pustovgarov has presented the First international forum “Big Chemistry” in Moscow. This forum will be held in Bashkortostan on May 26-28, the press-service of the Government RB reports.
For the reference: the Bashkir hydrocarbon complex is the biggest in Russia and the leader on manufacturing of ten sorts of chemical output: the complex holds the first place on manufacturing of the soda ash (60% of the all-Russian output), butyl and isobutyl alcohol (more than 50%), the second place on manufacturing of synthetic resins and plastic mixture (about 15%), the third place on production of hydrate of sodium (about 20%) and the fourth place on polyethylene and synthetic caoutchouc (more than 13%). In the post-Soviet time the Republic has managed to launch the production of food polymers – polyethyleneterephthalate – in addition to already available productions of polyethylene, propylene and ethylene. For today JSC “POLYEF” is the only enterprise in Russia, producing the terephthalic acid – the main stuff for production of polyethyleneterephthalate.
