Azerkimya, State-owned chemical maker and its subsidiaries have not restored the full capacity after returning on stream. MP Ikram Israfilov told APA-Economics that ethylene-polyethylene plant has restarted operation while chlorine branch is not expected to resume production soon.
“The Emergencies Ministry imposed a ban on the only operational workshop in the Synthesis- Caoutchouc Plant after explosion,” he added.
The employers of the plant have not received their salaries for March.
Sumgait-based Azerkimya shut down on January 25 because of the energy prices rise in the country, saying it sold its products under the terms of agreements concluded before the price jump and all the products had become “loss leaders”. The Cabinet of Ministers made a decision to restart the state-owned company by applying favorable conditions.
Azerkimya and its subsidiaries employ more than 8,000 people. /APA-Economics/
