OZSK to launch nano-coated glass container production in Far East

29 Feb '12
Glass container manufacturer OZSK group of companies intends to build the “Far East Glass Container Plant” in Khabarovsk, RusNanoNet reports.

The project will reportedly receive regional government support in $114m state guarantees.

Glass containers at the new plant will be covered with strengthening nano-coating. The company has been using the nano-coating technology at its existing plant in Orekhovo-Zuevo, Moscow region.

Using nanotechnologies in glass production results in lower consumption of raw materials and energy materials (natural gas, electricity), as well as lower environmental impact.

The new plant will be located in the Southern industrial zone of Khabarovsk. Its projected annual capacity is 450 million glass containers. The plant will have two galss furnaces to make colored and colorless containers. Production will ensure adequate supply for Far East and Eastern Siberia markets. Under plans, the factory will make various glass products, including beer and vodka bottles, flasks, stof-bottles, preserve cans and others. The production facility will create 700 jobs.

The plant is scheduled to reach its projected annual capacity in 2014. The company has already struck an agreement with large brewery Baltika for supplying 160 million bottles annually from the new plant, accounting for 40% of the produced amount.

Currently Khabarovsk region and Far East Federal District on the whole mostly buy glass containers from plants in West Siberia, Volga and Central Federal Districts. Due to transportation expenses cost of glass containers doubles, hindering development of the regional brewing, distillery and food industries.
