For expansion of production capacities took place the public hearings
On 25th March were carried out the public hearings for the facility of the state ecological expertise — project documentation of “Formalin-3 production plant”, which contains preliminary documents for estimation of the environment impact. Additional capacities of formalin production at Metadynea LLC site in Orekhovo-Zuevo will allow to increase the resins production.
In the project hearings participated around 100 people, including representatives of administration, Metadynea top management, representatives of the project documentation preparation and works on estimation of environment impact company, Engineering and Technological Center Metafrax LLC, as well as representatives of community from Orekhovo-Zuevo urban district. Public hearings were carried out on 25th March in “Malodubenskiy dom cultury”.
The hearings were started by the Deputy Chairman of the Commission, Head of the Housing and Utilities Department of the Administration of the Orekhovo-Zuevsky District Roman Apatenko, who introduced for everybody the event procedure and called on LLC Metadynea general director Igor Spasskiy and Roman Bayazitov, deputy general director – engineering director of Engineering and Technological Center Metafrax LCC.
Igor Spasskiy told to the hearings participants about current work of LLC Metadynea and perspectives of its development.

Roman Bayazitov, who spoked next, provided the main information about the project “Formalin–3 production plant”. As per the speech of the engineering director of the ETC Metafrax, the design capacity of the plant will be 91 thsd. tons of concentrated low methanol formalin per year.
During the hearings the questions were also asked about the project ecological safety. According to the chief specialist of the ETC Metafrax process section Ilya Ershov, gas treatment equipment foreseen by design ensures effective catalytic treatment of the atmosphere exhausts.

Concentrated low methanol formalin is a water formaldehyde solution, which is a raw material for production of phenolformaldehyde, melamineformaldehyde and ureaformaldehyde resins and products of organic synthesis.
Ureaformaldehyde and melamineformaldehyde resins are used for production of chip boards and medium density fiber boards, phenolformaldehyde resins for production of thermal insulation materials, impregnated resins for coating of wood materials with decorative paper, edge film, for laminating, as well as plywood resins for plywood production.
