This production plant for emulsion polyvinyl chloride (EPVC) products was started up in year 1988 and was kept continuously updated with several improvements during years.
Initial technology was supplied by Enichem, and continuously improved, therefore now is a proprietary know-how of plant owner.
Nominal production capacity is rated at 75,000 MTPY, but could be increased by 15% with grades mix rationalisation and other minor improvements.
Today, a plant with such capacity should cost some 95 million euro, with about 45 million euro just as equipment cost.
Battery limits include bagging lines for pvc powder, waste water treatment, control motor center, air compression section, etc.
Operations are managed from remote control room by means of a Valmet DCS (today Metzo Jap.) which runs all plant sections. All technical documentation is available.
Plant shut down occurred in year 2009, and equipments are kept with close lids, under N2 atmosphere. Only one vessel still contain some vcm and is planned to be emptied and cleaned by plant operators, shortly.
