About project

Irkutsk Polymer Plant is the first plant in Eastern Siberia with its own feedstock to produce polymers from ethane. Irkutsk Polymer Plant is part of the gas chemical cluster aimed to create of a system of enterprises for the production, treatment, transportation and processing of gas into a product with high added value. INK Group has been systematically implementing this project since 2014.
  • Investments in the construction of Irkutsk Polymer Plant will amount to about 200 billion roubles, about a third of which has already been deployed and spent.

Global consumption of polyethylene is growing on average by 4.0–4.5 % per year amounting to about 105 million tons in 2020, therefore, the capacity of Irkutsk Polymer Plant will be in demand both in the domestic and foreign markets. The polyethylene grades planned for production at Irkutsk Polymer Plant are used in mechanical engineering, medicine, heavy industry and consumer goods industry, including for the production of pipelines, structural parts, various types of films, and specialized medical products.
