The successful experience in the development and manufacture of analogues of imported complex technological equipment at Russian machine-building enterprises as part of this project phase is unique. The modernization will allow to process propylene oxide and ethylene oxide in total in the amount of at least 50 thousand tons per year.
The aim of the comprehensive investment project is the technical re-equipment of oxyalkylation lines with a deep reconstruction of production at the production site of Zavod sintanolov LLC, due to both the modernization of the main production lines and the creation of an appropriate enterprise infrastructure.
