POLYEF has completed reconstruction of terephthalic acid production facilities

On August 15, the reconstruction of terephthalic acid production (TPA), the only one in Russia, was completed at the SIBUR POLIEF enterprise in Blagoveshchensk. The ceremony dedicated to this event was attended by the Acting Head of Bashkortostan Radiy Khabirov, Deputy Minister of Energy of Russia Pavel Sorokin, Chairman of the Board of SIBUR Holding PJSC Dmitry Konov and General Director of POLIEF JSC Mikhail Yurin.

The terephthalic acid is the primary raw material for the synthesis of polyethylene terephthalate (PET), used in the production of plastic bottles for various drinks, synthetic fabrics, packaging materials, and medical products.

The volume of TPA consumption in the Russian market is about 500 thousand tons per year. Modernization of the existing production facilities at the Blagoveshchensk enterprise allows increasing the TPA production from 272 thousand to 350 thousand tons per year and significantly replacing imports.

As part of the project, a modern gas oxidation plant has been built, which will decrease emissions into the atmospheric air twofold. Due to the transition to pressure head rotary filters, the volume of industrial wastewater will be reduced by one and a half times.

Over 150 units of the main technological equipment, as well as most of the auxiliary equipment, were updated during the modernization. The volume of investments amounted to more than 6 billion rubles.
