TechnoNICOL receives award for polystyrene processing
30.11.2016

On November 22, the results of the 4th Annual Award Polymers of Russia 2016 were announced in Moscow. The TechnoNICOL Corporation received the prize as the best company in Processing polystyrene. This is the second companys award in polymer processing over the four-year history of the prize.

The «Polymers of Russia 2016» is the only Russian independent award in the segment of polymers and their processing. In 2016, the prize named the best companies in processing polypropylene, ABS-plastic, polyvinyl chloride, polystyrene, polyethylene and PET (polyethylene terephthalate). The prize features the achievements in processing and defines the best anti-crisis solutions. This year welcoming words to the participants of the event were sent by Russian public officials: Deputy Minister of Energy Kirill Molodtsov and Deputy Minister of industry and trade Sergey Tsyb.

TechnoNICOL was awarded the prize as the best company in «Polystyrene processing». The company purchases polystyrene raw material to produce extruded polystyrene (XPS). This building material is used in cottage and low-rise construction, industrial and civil objects, improvement and repairs of apartments and road building construction. The product is popular due to excellent physical-mechanical properties: low thermal conductivity, lightweight and low moisture absorption.

TechnoNICOL produces extruded polystyrene at its plants in Ryazan, Saint Petersburg, Novoulyanovsk, Uchaly, Urga, Khabarovsk, Mineralnye Vody and Dneprodzerzhinsk (Ukraine). The first line for the production of XPS was launched in 2006 at the Technoplex plant in Ryazan. By its 10th anniversary, the plant became one of the largest production sites for XPS in Europe. The three German production lines of the factory ensure the total output of 800 thousand m3 per year. The enterprise is charged to 90% of its capacity, and the export supplies have risen five times over the last 5 years.

The prize in «Polystyrene processing» highlights the company’s achievements in the Russian and international markets. The jury experts underlined, that «TechnoNICOL has strengthened positions within the country and started external expansion due to efficient business management. The total rise of company’s export supplies has risen four times over the past 2 years».

Receiving the award, Director of the Polymer insulation business unit of the TechnoNICOL Corporation Vasily Tkachev stated: «We are grateful to the organizers of the award for high evaluation of our work. TechnoNICOL has deserved this award: our polystyrene consumption volume exceeds 60 thousand tons per year — this is a significant figure for the national market of polymer raw materials. As a big player in this segment, we see the importance of eco-friendly and socially oriented business. First of all, this means the development of primary processing and further recycling of polymers and development of recycling centers. By comparison, Europe recycles 80% of polymers, and Russia only 10%. In 2017, our country prepares to hold the Year of Ecology. This is a good reason to pay more attention to the environment preservation and development of the civilized market of recycled polystyrene. Our company puts strategic priority on supporting the government actions and the contribution of processors and suppliers of secondary raw materials in this field.

The «Polymers of Russia 2016» was held in the framework of the IX Forum «Polymers of Russia», which traditionally unites top managers and proprietors of Russian polymer enterprises. Over 150 companies regularly attend the event. This year the forum was held under the motto «Develop processing». Experts stated that the polymer industry has developed product assortment and decreased import supplies. Nevertheless, very few companies had successes in recycling. The experts discussed ways to resolve the problem and opportunities for further growth of the national production.
