CJSC "SIBUR Holding" is the leader of petrochemistry in Russia and Eastern Europe. The Company operates across the entire petrochemical process chain from gas processing to the production of monomers and plastics, mineral fertilizers, tyres and synthetic rubber items, as well as the processing of plastics.

 

It is a great pleasure for us to be actively involved in the IYC celebrations in Russia.

Widespread promo-actions and PR-campaigns will be held in Moscow and other cities and regions, where our factories and subsidiaries are situated. Activities will be aimed at attractivation of petrochemistry and will appeal for breaking negative stereotypes about petrochemical industry and its influence on environment in Russia. Our goal is involvement of highly experienced experts in cooperation in the spheres of production, science and sales.

 

Another part of our IYC celebrations program will be allotted to social activities and focused events. The International competition of innovative ideas in the sphere of production and application of petrochemical products is our second big project devoted to IYC 2011. It refers to searching innovative ideas in the sphere of manufacturing and application of petrochemical products, aimed at polymeric material market development and modernization of petrochemical branch of Russian Federation.

The competition will be held in the following categories:

•Innovative solutions in the sphere of production and application of synthetic rubber;

•Innovative solutions in the sphere of production and application of plastics;

•Innovative solutions in the sphere of production and application of monomers for synthetic rubber;

•Innovative solutions in the sphere of ecological problems, connected with manufacturing and recycling petrochemical products.
