DYM Resources inicia la venta de alcohol isopropílico como desinfectante

En este periodo de crisis del COVID-19 en el que nos vemos envueltos, la desinfección rutinaria de superficies es una de las medidas más eficaces para impedir la propagación del virus. En DYM Resources, conscientes de la relevancia del problema, hemos decidido dar un paso adelante e incluir alcohol isopropílico (IPA) en nuestro catálogo. Esta medida es un paso esencial para ayudar a satisfacer la demanda mundial de desinfectantes de manos y de superficies.

El alcohol isopropílico o isopropanol es un disolvente de bajo coste que se emplea en la formulación de algunos químicos como antisépticos, desinfectantes y detergentes. Puede ser también utilizado en lociones para después del afeitado, lociones de mano u otros cosméticos.

Esperamos que la demanda de productos desinfectantes continúe hasta final de año, ya que probablemente el mundo tendrá que seguir haciendo frente a la pandemia COVID-19 hasta ese momento. Teniendo en cuenta la progresión de otros brotes víricos en Asia en el pasado, la demanda de productos desinfectantes se mantendrá al alza durante varios meses después del fin de la crisis”

Denis Varaksin, director ejecutivo de DYM Resources.

INEOS, una de las empresas químicas más importantes del mundo, ha comenzado a planificar un aumento en su capacidad de producción de alcohol isopropílico construyendo dos nuevas plantas en 10 días. INEOS dispone ya de instalaciones en las ciudades alemanas de Moers (155.000 toneladas al año) y Herne (85.000 toneladas al año) y su intención es incrementar significativamente los volúmenes de producción.

Según el informe de Technavio, Isopropyl Alcohol Market by Application and Geography-Forecast and Analysis 2020-2024. “El mercado de alcohol isopropílico crecerá 521.750 toneladas entre 2020 y 2024”

A pesar de la caída del precio del petróleo, el valor del alcohol isopropílico se ha triplicado en comparación con el precio medio de 2019. En estos tiempos, en los que las líneas de suministro escasean, DYM Resources asegura sus envíos en todo el mundo. 

DYM Resources puede suministrar alcohol isopropílico de grado cosmético en barriles e isotanques.  A continuación, se incluye el certificado de calidad del producto.

DYM Resources starts lithium hydroxide supply

DYM Resources introduces a new product in our portfolio – lithium hydroxide (HS Code 38112900, CAS Number 1310-65-2, EC No 215-183-4). We just bought a first batch from Russia and plan regular deliveries to our clients in Africa, Asia, and Middle East.

Lithium hydroxide is used to make lithium greases. Lithium greases are resistant to water and can be used in high or low temperatures. It is used to transfer heat. It can be used in electrolytes. Technical grade hydroxide can be used to glaze ceramics and make glass and cement. 70% of lubricating greases in the world have lithium in them.

Production of lithium hydroxide is expected to grow in the next five years, as the demand for it will rise dramatically in response to changes in electric vehicle (EV) battery materials. Russia is increasing lithium hydroxide production due to access to low-cost energy, labor and existing experience.

DYM Resources offers delivery of lithium hydroxide is in 25 kg bags, but we can also provide bags of the „big-bag“ type (500 kg and 1000 kg). Lithium hydroxide package complies with international standards and allows to transport product over long distances without changing the physical and chemical properties of the product.

DYM Resources renews registration at Uzbekistan commodity exchange

DYM Resources has recently renewed the registration at Uzbek commodity exchange and is able to source base oils, petroleum coke, slack wax and other products from Uzbekistan’s Fergana refinery.

The Fergana refinery produces about 60 types of petroleum products and is the only base oils producer in Uzbekistan. The design capacity of the processing plant is 5.5 million tons of oil per year. Fergana Oil Refinery is the only enterprise for producing fuel and lubricants in Central Asia region except for Turkmenbashy refinery in Turkmenistan.

Fergana Refinery exports SN 100, SN 150, SN 350, and SN 500 base oils and their industrial equivalents. The main destination markets are Central Asia, the Middle East, and Turkey. Base oils product capacity is estimated in different sources from 100,000 tons per year to 400,000 tons per year.

Fergana Refinery can produce more than 900 tons of slack wax a month, as well as 100 tons of paraffin T1 and petrolatum (micro crystalline wax with high oil content). Slack wax of Uzbekistan has a light color and a low melting point, which makes it a good source for candle production. There is a high demand in slack wax among candle manufacturers especially in Poland and Lithuania.

Uzbekistan’s lubes market is estimated at 216,000 tons per year, according to Uznefteproduct. The country imports around 20,000 tons of lubes annually.

DYM Resources is buying the products at the Uzbek commodity exchange, organizing finance and quality control and delivering products at competitive prices, with high quality logistics and flexible payment terms. DYM Resources can offer base oils in rail tank cars or flexi-containers and slack wax in trucks, rail tank cars and tank containers from The Fergana Oil Refinery in Uzbekistan.

Russia’s bitumen export duty drops for May 2020 shipments

The oil export duty of Russia will fall by $45.2 to $6.8 per ton from May 1, according to the website of the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation. The ministry reports that from March 15 to April 14 the average price of Russia’s main export oil blends, Urals, was $19 per barrel, or $138.7 per ton.

Considering the current prices for Russian crude oil blend Urals, projected export duty in June will be 0 USD/mt for the first time since duties were introduced. Export duty of bitumen is equal to export duty of crude oil. This means that the bitumen export duty will be less than 7 USD/Mt for May 2020 shipments.

The current situation makes the export of Russian bitumen to the neighboring CIS countries cost-effective for European customers. Russian refineries can deliver additional volumes to the European market due to a temporary decline in domestic demand because of the restrictive measures introduced in Russia in early April.

DYM Resources offers both regular and polymer modified bitumen. All products are EN-certified.

DYM starts supplies of ethanol and benzalkonium chloride for sanitizers production

DYM Resources is reacting to the COVID-19 outbreak, constantly trying to adapt to the new circumstances and the changing environment. This time we are introducing two new products: ethanol and BAC (benzalkonium chloride).

Since the demand for alcohol disinfectant is extremely high these days, people start turning to ethanol and non-alcoholic disinfectants that may as well be effectively used as sanitizers.

The use of ethanol in a production of disinfectants has been approved in many countries in an effort to control the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. Many producers switched their production from fuel alcohol to neutral alcohol for disinfectants.

DYM Resources is exporting 98% ethanol from Korea and China.

The product is packed in iso-tanks 19 tons each.

DYM Resources starts supplies for isopropyl alcohol for disinfection

The ongoing COVID-19 crisis increased demand for the disinfectant products since regular disinfection helps to limit the virus spread. Realizing the importance of the topic, DYM Resources is getting into the act: we added a new product IPA (isopropyl alcohol) into our chemicals segment. This is an essential step in helping to meet the global demand for hand sanitizers and surface disinfectants.

IPA is an inexpensive solvent used as a common ingredient in chemicals such as antiseptics, disinfectants, and detergents. It can also be used in aftershave lotions, hand lotions, and other cosmetics.

„We expect long term demand for disinfection as the world will continue to fight the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic most likely till the end of this year. Based on previous virus outbreaks in Asia, the demand for sanitizing materials will remain strong during several months after the crisis is over“

Denis Varaksin, managing director of DYM Resources

INEOS, one of the world’s largest chemical producers, has planned to build two new factories in 10 days to produce more IPA. Currently the company has IPA production capacities of 155,000 tons/year at Moers and of 85,000 tons/year in Herne (both cities are in Germany), so they are planning to increase these numbers dramatically.

According to Technavio report Isopropyl Alcohol Market by Application and Geography – Forecast and Analysis 2020-2024, “The isopropyl alcohol market size has the potential to grow by 521.75 thousand tons during 2020-2024, and the market’s growth momentum will accelerate during the forecast period.”

Despite falling crude oil prices, value of isopropyl alcohol has increased almost three times compared to average prices of 2019. In times of shortage professional supply chain solutions are needed and DYM Resources expertise is here to help clients globally.

DYM Resources can supply cosmetic grade IPA in drums and iso-containers. Please find a Cerfiticate of Quality below.
