Kazanorgsintez produced the first lot of its products 55 years ago, on 13 July 1963. A new page in history of Tatarstan's petrochemistry opened with the production of phenol and acetone. The enterprise will also celebrate its main jubilee this autumn - 60 years since foundation. And now Realnoe Vremya is publishing a series of historic photos about the enterprise's construction, update and production of new goods, which Kazanorgsintez started to manufacture after joining TAIF Group of Companies.
