Dec '12
Mogilevkhimvolokno, part of the state run Belarus chemical company Belneftekhim, will import paraxylene (PX) from Kazakhstan to manufacture polyester fibre, Belneftekhim has announced.
Last month, a joint proposal was signed between Belarus and Kazakhstan for construction of a new US$ 300 million pure terephthalic acid (PTA) plant in the Mogilevkhimvolokno scheme, which will be supplied with Kazakh paraxylene.
Around 50 percent of the expected annual polyester fibre production of 600,000 tonnes by Mogilevkhimvolokno will be exported to other countries.
OAOA Mogilevkhimvolokno is a leading manufacturer of dimethyl terephthalate, PET chips, polyester fibers and yarn. The goods manufactured comply with the world quality standards and more than 65 percent of the goods are exported to more than 30 countries in the world including Russian Federation, Ukraine, China, USA, Germany, Italy, Poland, Romania, Lithuania, Latvia.
