Fast expansion has its challenges. In order to be competitive in the global market, large companies continually need to improve their performance and productivity. For SIBUR – one of the world’s largest petrochemical companies with production sites in the Confederation of Independent States, Central and Eastern Europe – that meant deploying a production system with the help of consultants from DuPont Sustainable Solutions. Since starting the process in 2009, the financial value of SIBUR’s pipeline of improvement projects has more than doubled. Through 2013, SIBUR estimates the financial benefits from the production system at twenty times its investment with DSS.
