Associated petroleum gas (APG) — it is a by-product of hydrocarbon extraction and processing.
SIBUR facilities separate APG into dry stripped gas, stable natural gasoline (SNG), and natural gas liquids (NGL). These components then undergo further processing:
NGLs are separated into individual hydrocarbons — methane, ethane, propane and butane, and their mixtures
They serve as feedstocks for ethylene and propylene production, in home heating, or as an eco-friendly gas engine fuel.
Ethane, propane and butane
are exposed to high temperatures in a low-pressure environment, which transforms them into substances with new properties called monomers (ethylene, propylene, etc.).
These hydrocarbons then become feedstocks for various polymer compounds.
As a result of complex chemical reactions
monomers convert to polymers, which include polyethylene, polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride, polystyrene and others.
These basic polymers are used by manufacturers of packaging, hot and cold water piping, construction and decorative materials, medical and household goods, automobile parts, etc
One of our key goals is incorporating recycled plastics in production to make environmentally friendly and easily recyclable polymers.
Under our Vivilen brand we do just that, putting out sustainable materials that are used in manufacturing containers, packaging, FMCG products and industrial goods.
