The plant, which will produce ammonia and methanol, has been under construction in Tatarstan since 2011. Methanol will be used to cover the needs of Tatarstan petrochemical companies. Ammonia will be converted to urea and ammonium nitrate, which are used for agricultural purposes. Seventy per cent of granular urea is expected to be sold in the former Soviet Republics, the European Union and Asia, while 30% will be used to cover the domestic needs. According to plans, the plant’s daily output will reach 2050 tonnes of ammonia, or 1400 tonnes of ammonia and 680 tonnes of methanol. The site occupies more than 35 hectares, with more than 100 facilities under construction.

China National Chemical Engineering Co., Ltd (CNCEC) CEO Yu Jinbo has suggested that CNCEC and the Tatarstan government authorities discuss the possibility of moving Chinese chemical plants to the Republic, according to the Prime Business News Agency. “With the consent of the government of the Republic of Tatarstan, we are ready to assist in exploring the Chinese chemical industry,” Jinbo said. The matter was discussed during a meeting with interim President of the Republic of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov in Kazan. The parties will explore the possibility of opening Chinese chemical plants in Tatarstan within the framework of the expanded long-term Russia–China cooperation, the press office of the Tatarstan regional administration reports. Minnikhanov suggested that a working group be established to examine the Chinese chemical plants that can be moved to Russia – and to Tatarstan in particular.

CNCEC is involved in the construction of the Ammonium facility for the production of ammonia, methanol and granular urea, which will be launched in Mendeleyevsk in August. The plant’s annual output is expected to be 717,000 tonnes of ammonia, 717,000 tonnes of urea, 236,000 tonnes of methanol and around 300,000 tonnes of ammonium nitrate. “Yu Jinbo expressed his confidence that the project will become a springboard for long-term cooperation between Tatarstan and China. According to the representative of the Chinese corporation, as of today, the development of chemical industry in China has reached the point where many chemical producers are willing to grow and move their plants to other regions. The Chinese government supports these projects,” the news release reads.
