Sibur to Collaborate with Gazprom Neft in Production and Marketing of Polymer Road Materials
CHEMMONITOR.COM – The St. Petersburg-headquartered Russian oil and gas company Gazprom Neft and a Russian petrochemicals producer Sibur with a head office in Moscow will collaborate in the polymer road materials production and marketing.
Sibur will deliver styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) polymers to the facilities of Gazprom Neft. The materials are applied in the polymer-bitumen binders (PBB) manufacturing to improve the quality characteristics of the road surface and extend its service life.
Moreover, the parties are ready to carry out a joint research to develop the utilization of road materials based on polymers, in particular, to work up SBS polymers brands.
