Production and Market of Sodium Nitrite in Russia and Ukraine

Sodium nitrite (NaNO2) is a colourless or light yellow crystal used to produce organic dyes, food, textile, and rubber goods as well as in metallurgy and in medicine. It is a good corrosion inhibitor and an antifreezing agent in building structures. It is involved in the extraction of tin from scrap tinplate and phosphating of metal surfaces.

Currently, there are two sodium nitrite manufacturers in CIS: Azot JSC (Russia) and Concern Stirol JSC (Ukraine). In the last years the production volumes of sodium nitrite in CIS have considerably reduced. Imports in both Russia and Ukraine are decreasing faster than exports because of the fall in the demand for this product after the economic crisis.
