A fire at Sibur's petrochemical plant in the Russian city of Dzerzhinsk has been extinguished, emergency services said on Wednesday.
Sibur earlier said that it suspended production of ethylene oxide and glycols after due to fire.

We remind, ZapSibNeftekhim produced the first batches of colored polyethylene pipe grades in Russia — blue HD 03505 RC blue and orange HD 03505 PE orange — for water and gas supply systems. The main feature of pipes from RC grades is their bright color, which makes it easy to identify the intended purpose of the pipeline during installation or repair work. In addition, the presence of a colored layer makes it easier to detect damage to the pipe surface during installation.
