MMK is not happy with UC Rusal’s price for liquid coal-tar pitch

FAS has decided to initiate a case in respect of UC Rusal by the issue of the violation of the competition defense law.

According to MMK, Rusal unreasonably set various prices for liquid coal-tax pitch of B1, V marks purchased from MMK and other suppliers.

The consideration of the case is appointed for November 19th 2015.

MMK annually produces liquid coal-tax pitch at the volume of 115 thousand tons. The claims of MMK are connected with the fact that UC Rusal pays 2 times more for the imported liquid coal-tax pitch than for Russian.
