The Mineralovodsky Polymer Plant (MPZ), situated in the Stavropol Territory, Russia, has witnessed a remarkable surge in the production of recycled polymers, achieving a twofold increase since the onset of January 2024. The monthly output has now soared to an impressive 1.5 thousand tons. This substantial growth is indicative of the plant's commitment to sustainable practices and underscores its pivotal role in the burgeoning field of recycled polymer production.

Starting from February 2024, the company embarked on a strategic expansion, diversifying its product range to include stretch film made from primary materials. A cutting-edge production facility, boasting a capacity of up to 450 tons per month, was inaugurated to facilitate this initiative. The Mineralovodsky Polymer Plant's dedication to innovation is evident in its multifaceted approach, combining increased recycled polymer production with the introduction of new facilities geared towards primary material-based stretch film manufacturing.

Within the refinery's production infrastructure, there are four dedicated lines dedicated to the creation of secondary regranulate, complemented by five extruders specifically designed for the production of secondary stretch film. This collective capacity exceeds an impressive 18 thousand tons annually, reflecting the substantial scale of the plant's operations. The emphasis on secondary regranulate and stretch film underscores the versatility of the plant, catering to various industrial applications and market demands.

The Mineralovodsky Polymer Plant specializes in the production of secondary granules, particularly those composed of high-density polyethylene (HDPE). These granules serve as essential raw materials for the extrusion film manufacturing process, as well as for the creation of diverse products through casting techniques. Furthermore, the plant engages in the production of secondary stretch granules designed for extrusion applications, adding another dimension to its comprehensive range of offerings.

A notable development highlighted by the plant's representative is the incorporation of machinery dedicated to the production of high-tech machine stretch film using primary raw materials. With a substantial capacity exceeding 5 thousand tons per year, this machinery represents a significant advancement in the plant's capabilities. The installation of this equipment underscores the company's forward-looking approach, incorporating cutting-edge technology to enhance its production capabilities and meet evolving market demands.

The incorporation of Italian and Turkish equipment attests to the global perspective adopted by the Mineralovodsky Polymer Plant, leveraging the expertise and technology offered by reputable international manufacturers. By integrating advanced equipment and employing rigorous quality control measures, the plant positions itself as a key player in the field of polymer production, contributing to both regional and global demands for sustainable and high-quality materials.
