The total declared volume of the project financing amounted to approx. 1 billion roubles. A land plot of 16 901 m2 was reserved for the project. , The licensor was Johnson Matthey Formox AB.

The commissioning of the facility should increase the production of formaldehyde by 50,000 tons per year in equivalent to 100% formaldehyde, and cover the most of internal plant’s needs. 

The main part of the commissioning is planned to be completed in December 2017, the full completion of the project and putting the object into operation is planned in January 2018.
