The propylene produced at Tobolsk-Polymer's propane dehydrogenation facilities was registered under the European Union's REACH chemical safety regulations. EU certification of the polypropylene product opens up the export markets of member states. The core product is made at the new Tobolsk facility using propylene as the feedstock.

Tobolsk-Polymer is a world-class state-of-the-art facility. The Company's production processes comply with international safety and quality standards. The registration of this polypropylene feedstock under the EU REACH Regulations is another milestone confirming the Company's commitment to high quality standards and use of modern, environmentally friendly technologies.

REACH, the European Union's regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals, came into force in 2007. Chemicals without a REACH registration will not be allowed to be produced, imported, sold or used in EU countries. The main aims of REACH are to ensure a high level of protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals.

At least thirty thousand existing and new chemicals will be registered under the regulation in the coming years.
