- Technical and cord yarn – 8,6 kt (92,6%);
- Dipped cord fabric – 12,0 mln running meters (157,5%).
The decrease in production volumes for some products is related to scheduled turnarounds in Q3, 2017.
The company continues to implement projects for the construction of the 5th polyamide-6 production plant, the ammonium sulfate compacting plant in the form of a joint venture with the company Trammo (USA) and the ammonium sulfate-nitrate production plant.
Joint venture with German company Linde for the ammonia production started operation in the commissioning mode.
A joint venture of PJSC KuibyshevAzot and MET Development S.p.A, a design division of Maire Tecnimont S.p.A (Italy), was established for the purpose of developing, constructing, financing, maintaining and operating a new production of granulated urea to be located on the industrial site of KuibyshevAzot in Togliatti. The total amount of investment in the project is estimated at about 160 million Euro. (10.9 billion rubles). The production capacity will be 525 thousand tons of urea per year (1500 tons/day).
The company started production of liquid nitrogen sulfur-containing fertilizer, use of which allows increasing the yield and improving agricultural products quality.
The reconstruction of the waste water treatment facility at the urea plant was completed, this allowed to stop the chemically polluted effluents from this production and to reduce the consumption of river water by more than 200 thousand m3 per year.
The construction of the treatment facilities for the storm water runoffs of the Northern industrial hub and part of the Central district of the city of Togliatti is continuing. This project provides for the effluents treatment at the modern sanitary requirements level, which will positively affect the state of water in the Saratov water reservoir (the Volga River) and the region ecology in general.
In June 2017, KuibyshevAzot successfully passed a certification audit for compliance of the quality management system with the requirements of ISO / TS 16949 in the field of application: design, development, manufacture and supply of dipped cord fabric. The introduction of the new standard will allow continuing the systematic work on the quality of the products supplied to the enterprises of the automotive industry.
All the projects are aimed at ensuring the long-term development of PJSC KuibyshevAzot, reducing the consumption of raw materials, heat and energy resources, reducing the impact of production on the environment, and maintaining the company's market position in an increasingly competitive environment.
