MOSCOW – The Moscow company Soyuztekstil-ST intends to expand the production of polyester synthetic yarns in the city of Kursk, investing 2 billion rubles in the production, Kommersant reports.

According to Mikhail Aksenov, chairman of the committee on industry, trade and entrepreneurship of the Kursk region, Moscow Soyuztekstil-ST is already installing equipment in workshops within the city. “Investors own land and industrial buildings. They reconstructed them for almost the whole of 2019 and are now preparing to launch the torsion section, the full commissioning of production is planned for 2023,” M. Aksenov said.

Soyuztekstil invests about 2 billion rubles in a new project. own and bank funds (the lender is not disclosed). The total production capacity is estimated at 15 thousand tons of synthetic polyester yarns per year. They can be used as a cord for tires. “At the initial stage, the company focuses on the Russian market, export is possible in the future. We are ready to provide state support to the investor, but so far the company has not requested it from us. But with the participation of the regional administration, the project has already been submitted to the Ministry of Industry and Trade,” he said.

One of the main buyers of cord at the enterprise may become a large Russian tire manufacturer Cordiant, which is close to the project beneficiaries.

The initiators of the project of the polyester yarn factory are also associated with the Kurskrezinotekhnika company, a large representative of the Kursk chemical industry.

Kursk already has a large producer of synthetic fiber. This is the structure of the Kuybyshevazot holding company Kurskkhimvolokno, which produces technical threads and fabric for cords, among others: the company invested 1.5 billion rubles in 2010 to create the production of these products. Kurskkhimvolokno produces more than 70% of polyamide technical threads in the domestic market. Soyuztekstil plans to produce polyester yarns slightly different from polyamide in terms of stiffness, hygroscopicity and light fastness.

The owner of 100% LLC Soyuztekstil-ST Yuri Ankudinov is the general director of the synthetic fiber and tire cord plant of Tekskor JSC in the city of Volzhsky, Volgograd Region. The majority shareholder of Tekskora is St. Petersburg’s Cordiant, one of the main legal entities for tire manufacturers. From 2012 to the end of 2018, Texcor was an asset of Gazprom and was called Gazprom Khimvolokno. Since 2000, he was part of the SIBUR holding under the name Sibur-Volzhsky.

MOSCOW – The spot price range of monoethylene glycol (MEG) in Europe has narrowed to EUR475-500 per tonne, CIF NWE, ICIS reports.

After a limited supply period at the beginning of the month on the European market for monoethylene glycol (MEG), spot supply increased by the end of January.

This year, consumers have reduced contract volumes and, in some cases, have chosen spot agreements. This led to expectations of increased liquidity in the European spot market. In early January, prices rose, as the increase in demand coincided with delays in imports.

Several sellers participated in a spot tender, which ended in the week ending January 24, but activity was lower than expected, as buyers took a wait and see attitude.

Imports continue to come from the United States, and several players regularly supply materials.MEG Europe Monoethylene Glycol

The Asian market is calm due to Lunar New Year celebrations, and prices have fallen this week due to lower demand. Despite the reduction in price differences between Europe and Asia, sales to Asia remain more profitable than Europe. Although the extended Lunar New Year holidays due to the coronavirus can affect the demand abroad.

Prices in southern Europe were higher than in the north, with price levels in Spain and Italy being around EUR520-530 per tonne, FCA.MEG Europe Monoethylene Glycol

MEG, along with terephthalic acid (TFA), is one of the main raw materials for the production of polyethylene terephthalate (PET).

According to ScanPlast of Market Report, the estimated PET consumption in December 2019 decreased by 16% compared to the previous year. In total, according to the results of 2019, the total estimated consumption in Russia increased by 1% and amounted to 696.81 thousand tons of PET (690.13 thousand tons in 2018).

Thus, the contract price of styrene monomer in Europe was finally agreed at EUR1 017 per tonne for January deliveries, which is EUR64 per tonne higher than the level of the previous month. European contract price polystyrene

The supply remains sufficient, although this week was somewhat more limited due to the fact that suppliers closed their orders in January to resume operations in February. Import was also not offered due to the celebration of the Lunar New Year in Asia.

In the second half of January, there was a stronger buying interest than in the first half.

However, the packaging sector, in particular disposable packaging, is likely to face a significant impact this year from the EU ban on the use of disposable plastics by 2021.

Therefore, customers are switching to alternative products. This includes players switching from OPS / M to the use of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) and polycarbonate (PC).

Demand for construction in the second half of January remains stable, and it is expected that it will grow from the end of the first quarter or second quarter as weather conditions improve. European contract price polystyrene

The sector was seasonally low earlier this month due to low temperatures. According to sources, this year interest in household appliances will grow.

According to ScanPlast of Market Report, the estimated consumption of PS and styrene plastics in Russia for the eleven months of 2019 amounted to 458.77 thousand tons, which corresponds to the same indicator of consumption a year earlier. European contract price polystyrene

In November, the estimated consumption of PS and styrene plastics in the country increased by 2% compared to November 2018 and amounted to 49.21 thousand tons.

Genomatica Hits Industry-First Milestone in Nylon Sustainability

Clean manufacturing leader produces the world’s first ton of renewable nylon intermediate

Eighty years after nylon’s first commercial production, clean manufacturing technology leader Genomatica achieved a new milestone for the material — its production of the world’s first renewably-sourced ton of the key ingredient for nylon-6, made from plants instead of crude oil. Nylon, the first totally synthetic fiber to be made into consumer products including apparel and carpet, is responsible for an estimated 60 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year through traditional production which begins with crude oil. Genomatica Industry Nylon Sustainability

Genomatica’s innovation, alongside partner and major European nylon producer Aquafil, will produce 100% renewably-sourced nylon that delivers equivalent performance to the conventional nylon that touches millions of people’s lives, but with lower environmental impact. Genomatica Industry Nylon Sustainability

This bio-based nylon has the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in a $10 billion global industry that produces over five million tons of nylon-6 per year, to make carpet, clothing, car interiors, engineered plastics and food packaging.

“DuPont’s landmark production of nylon eighty years ago introduced a highly versatile staple material to the apparel, textile and engineering product industries,” said Christophe Schilling, CEO of Genomatica. “It’s a terrific material, and now, with the power of biotechnology, we can reinvent where it comes from. This is a major step forward in offering a new, more sustainable future with a better nylon for the full range of industries it serves.” Genomatica Industry Nylon Sustainability

With the rise of fast fashion and the ongoing demand for nylon-based products, more sustainably sourced nylon ingredients are essential to reducing the industry’s environmental impacts. The Ellen MacArthur Foundation echoed this sentiment in its 2017 report: A New Textiles Economy, which cited making effective use of resources and moving to renewable ingredients as one of four core ambitions to realize this vision of a new global textiles system.Genomatica Industry Nylon Sustainability

Genomatica Industry Nylon Sustainability

Genomatica’s technology to make a naturally sourced nylon, recently recognized as a special mention in TIME’s Best Inventions, is made possible by fermentation — similar to making beer. The company engineered a microorganism and production process that ferments the sugars found in plants to make the chemical intermediate for nylon-6. This milestone marks Genomatica’s successful scaling of this process to produce one ton of the intermediate. The chemical is then converted into nylon-6 polymer chips and yarn by Aquafil in Slovenia. Genomatica Industry Nylon Sustainability

Global partners have played a key role in accelerating Genomatica’s bio-nylon program. Aquafil was the first to join Genomatica’s program, bringing funding support and nylon-related chemical, quality and market expertise. Additionally, Project EFFECTIVE, a consortium with 12 partners including major brands like H&M, Vaude, Carvico and Balsan, was formed to drive the production of more sustainable bio-based fibers for widely-used consumer products made from renewable feedstocks.Genomatica Industry Nylon Sustainability

“Ninety five percent of Americans think sustainability is a good goal and we’re seeing consumers demand more sustainable products,” Schilling went on to say. “Our technology provides brands with a solution to meet this consumer demand for better-sourced products.”
