On March 5, at the Kazanorgsintez Chemical Company, Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov took part in launching a new line for the production of tubular three-layer FFS film, designed for the production of bags on high-performance packaging machines for further packaging of polymer products manufactured by the company.
The old building of one of the plant's workshops was completely reconstructed and modern equipment was delivered to launch the new line. Investments in the project amounted to about 316 million roubles. The planned output is 2,590 tonnes per year.
The new production line will make it possible not to purchase the imported packaging at all, as well as to increase the volume of own processing of the produced polyethylene. The economic effect will exceed 51 million roubles a year.
Speaking at the event, Minnikhanov noted that today Kazanorgsintez is the leading enterprise of the petrochemical industry of the republic, and the TAIF Group of Companies in general is the largest producer of polymers and rubbers. "These products need modern packaging, which used to be purchased abroad. Now, the TAIF will fully provide the production with packaging material. Therefore, this project is of great importance as part of import substitution," Tatarstan President emphasized.
According to Minnikhanov, the TAIF needs 10,000 tonnes of packaging film per year. "The launch of this production line is a start to addressing this issue," he said.
