December 22, Styrene & Polyether Resin Plant of “Nizhnekamskneftekhim” INC produced a 5-millionth ton of styrene since it was put into operation.
The first ton of that product was made in October 1977. Since then, due to the innovative implementations of the Plant’s personnel, the capacity increased by more than 20%, wastes reduced 4 times.
The personnel keep on improving economic and ecological characteristics of the Plant. In particular, now a process of liquid phase dehydration of methyl-phenyl carbinol (intermediate material to produce styrene) is being polished. Implementation of that process will allow to reduce steam consumption by 40%, exclude using fuel gas, diminish waste water.
