RusVinyl is a Russian-Belgian joint venture created for the construction of a 330,000 tonnes per year Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Integrated Plant near Kstovo in the Nizhniy Novgorod region.
The joint venture partners are SIBUR and the Belgian company SolVin, a leading PVC manufacturer in Europe. SolVin is a joint affiliated company of Solvay, an international group of chemical and pharmaceutical companies, and the German group BASF.
The plant will use cutting-edge European technologies (BAT — Best Available Techniques) to ensure the necessary range of PVC with low process costs, and will comply with the most rigorous environmental requirements of the Russian Federation. The plant will produce 300,000 tonnes of PVC- suspension, 30,000 tonnes of PVC- emulsion and 235,000 tonnes of caustic soda. If the current growth rates of PVC consumption across the CIS territory persist the plant’s working capacity will be extended under the terms of the joint venture.
SIBUR owns 50% of RusVinyl.
