According to the head of administration of Masljaninsky area Vyacheslav Jarmanova, a local complex of the enterprises processes flax in a short and long linen fibre - from it the heater further is made, and a waste is used for ekotopliva. Mister Jarmanov believes that the main problem for present lnozavodchikov, both novosibirtsev, and omichej, is not so much creation of new manufactures, how many understanding of market prospects of branch. local and the federal authorities pay much attention to development of this branch, the federal target program is accepted, there is an understanding and from banks, therefore to create new manufacture from zero quite probably. But the main thing - to define perspective commodity markets and consumption volumes - he has underlined.

interest of investors to flax manufacture confirm in the Siberian bank of the Savings Bank of the Russian Federation. Last year the bank has gone on the agreement of lawsuit with NPO the Altay flax . The enterprise since 2008 realises rbl. project in cost of 800 million on creation of manufacture of nonwoven materials, including a fireproof heater, but in crisis has met difficulties on service of credits. As the project is considered innovative and is supported by the regional government, the Savings Bank has met the Altay company.

analyst IK finam Anna Mishutina estimates volume of the Russian market of products of processing of flax in $3,5 - 4 billion Against growth of world and internal demand for the linen fibre, actively used today not only in the textile industry, but also in the widest spectrum of various sectors of economy, there is a considerable potential of growth - madam Mishutina explains.

However, the expert marks, last years the situation in sphere of manufacture and flax processing remains enough difficult. Against chronic nedoinvestirovannosti the industry and a rigid competition to import production manufacture as raw materials, and processing products does not grow. As proof of the words madam Mishutina cites given Rosstata according to whom volume of total gathering of flax - dolguntsa on the average in the last some years were formed at level nearby 45 - 50 thousand t, volume of release of linen fabrics - 45 million in sq. m.
