Biaxplen, part of Russia's petrochemicals giant Sibur, has expanded its export of biaxially-oriented polypropylene (BOPP) film to the European market.
Biaxplen states that its products are now being shipped to Spain and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
“The European market with its well-developed infrastructure and transparent practices is one of the most attractive for Biaxplen. Over the last year, we geared up to expand Russian supplies to this market as two new BOPP production lines were launched, in Tomsk and Novokuybyshevsk, boosting Biaxplen's overall capacity by over 60 percent. Today, our company's five sites are capable of producing up to 180 metric tons of BOPP film yearly," said Ilya Papusha, sales and marketing director of Biaxplen in a news release.
Biaxplen says its European Union exports of BOPP film account for 17 percent of total sales.
