SIBUR's POLIEF site in Blagoveshchensk, Republic of Bashkortostan, launches the production of green PET granules, which, among other materials, will rely on some 34 kt of recycled plastics annually. PET flakes derived from used food packaging will serve as an input for primary polymers.
SIBUR has published its Sustainability Report that covers the Company’s 2019 operations and performance related to HSE, human resources, local communities, R&D, investments, etc. This is SIBUR’s fourth Sustainability Report, which is a testament to its consistent and comprehensive approach to promoting non-financial reporting, as well as the focus on information transparency and constructive dialogue with stakeholders.
SIBUR has diversified its export supplies of polypropylene and polyethylene to China by leveraging Russia’s rail transportation infrastructure. Until 2020, the Company mainly relied on sea transportation to ship its products to the region. Today, thanks to China’s One Belt, One Road initiative, products from our Tobolsk and Tomsk sites are also supplied to Chongqing and Chengdu by rail.
