In early December, gas-cycle reactor was put into operation at Omsk polypropylene plant – the joint venture of GC "Titan", SIBUR and "Gazprom Neft". As a result of such reactor operation, it is planned to reach an increase of saleable product output.

Gas-cycle reactor, intended for copolymer production, is the part of polymerization unit complex. The technical solution, applied by the specialists of "Poliom" Ltd. together with the company-licensor LyondellBasell within this investment project implementation, considers the start and use of the reactor for homopolymerproduction.

At the end of November, six Italian specialists-representatives of LyondellBasell and manufacturer of rotating equipment NuovoPignone arrived at the enterprise site for commissioning performance. The following activities were carried out with the participation of Italian specialists: compressor and pumping equipment testing, testing of instrumentation, including gas chromatograph and level indicator. On 7 December, the reactor was switched to full cycle.

Currently, "Poliom" specialists stabilize the equipment operation. They have already tested the release of several polypropylene grades, including three special grades. According to the laboratory of production control, the physical and mechanical properties of the product obtained under the new technology comply with the standards. The first batches of polypropylene were shipped to processors. At present, economic indicators of production are being analyzed.
