The new melamine plant will add 60 jobs in the Gubakha County of Russia’s Perm Territory.
Despite the modest number of new jobs, the project is still very important for the local economy in terms of investment – the RUR 19.7 bln ($310 mio) facility will increase the annual output of this kind of products by as much as 40K tons.
It is a second production unit of the Ammonia-Carbamide-Melamine integrated facility, which is currently being built in Gubakha.
For reference, melamine is a durable and wear-resistant artificial material, resistant to both moisture and mechanical stress. Due to its glossy look, it is often called “artificial veneer” and used in the manufacturing of furniture.
