Equipment supply contract concluded for new expandable polystyrene production

SIBUR subsidiary Sibur-Khimprom CJSC has concluded a contract for equipment design and supply and management of construction and assembly for an expandable polystyrene (EPS) production unit with the German company Chemieanlagenbau Chemnitz GmbH.

SIBUR decided to implement the construction project for the new expandable polystyrene production facility at Sibur-Khimprom CJSC in Perm at the end of 2007. The estimated capacity of the first stage of the new complex is 50,000 tons per year, with a potential for future expansion up to 100,000 tons per year.

Technology developed by the Norwegian company Sunpor Technology S.A. will be used at the EPS production facility. Sunpor Technology S.A. has experience in successful operation of similar production facilities in Austria.

The first stage of construction and assembly operations are slated for completion by the end of 2010.
