“Nizhnekamskneftekhim” company has received nine million tons of propylene

At the ethylene plant of one of the largest petrochemical companies in Eastern Europe, “Nizhnekamskneftekhim” company, the 9 million tons of propylene have been received for 44 years of work.

Today, the plant’s capacity is 616.6 thousand tons of ethylene and 300 thousand tons of propylene per year. This was achieved as a result of two stages of ethylene production modernization, as well as with the commissioning of two new SRT-VI type pyrolysis furnaces.

Performance and environmental safety are among the advantages of new equipment. The implementation of this project allowed to increase the reliability of the furnace unit, as well as reduce the amount of flue gas emissions into the atmosphere.

Propylene is an essential component of many production facilities of “Nizhnekamskneftekhim”. It is used for the production of polypropylene, acrylic acid nitrile, isopropyl and butyl alcohols, isopropylbenzene, propylene oxide, glycerol and other organic products.
