A large industrial enterprise has launched its work in the Uzbek city of Nukus, according to the information published on the Uzbekistan's government portal.
The construction of the Nukus Polymer plant with a total cost of 27.1 billion soums was put into operation in a short period of time.
The plant processes polyethylene and polypropylene granules, which are used to make modern plastic pipes for systems of gas supply and water drain.
By the end of this year, after the launch of the third and fourth lines of production, as many as 138 people will be permanently employed.
Twelve types of pipes with a diameter of 16 to 630 millimeters will be manufactured here annually out of 8,000 tons of polyethylene and polypropylene granules.
Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev during his January trip to the Republic of Karakalpakstan (Uzbekistan) instructed to build a plant for the production of polymer products noting the need to ensure employment of the population through the organization of enterprises for the production of import-substituting products.
