Moscow, 28 May 2013. SIBUR has begun integrated equipment testing at the propylene storage facility and trial production of the first polypropylene line at the company’s Tobolsk-Polymer complex, according to the commissioning timetable. This follows testing of the first production line at the extrusion plant and the polypropylene packaging and dispatch plant.
Over the course of the next few months SIBUR will continue commissioning operations across all production facilities and expects to begin production at the complex by the end of 2013, once all approvals have been granted.
