December 9, 2005

RUSSIA: Nizhnekamskneftekhim (NKNH) and Ballestra have signed contracts for the provision of a sulphonation plant, which is intended to be the first step in forming the production of a full range of anionic surfactants necessary for the detergent industry. The new sulphonation plant will be one of the most modern in Russia and the CIS Republics. It will be located in Nizhnekamsk, in the Volga River basin and east of the Ural mountains. NKNH will become one of the major Russian manufacturers of detergent intermediates such as alpha olefin sulphonates, LABS and ethoxylated fatty alcohol sulphates, most of which are not yet available in Russia.
