Midland, Michigan/USA – Burel currently builds a new 250,000 tonnes per year polypropylene facility at Gebang Industrial Park, Malaysia. The company recently decided to employ a licensed Unipol Polypropylene technology from Dow's subsidiary Dow Perfomance Plastics. This all gas-phase process is able to produce a broad range of polypropylene resins.

“There is growing demand for polypropylene in Asia and we are working with our customers to help meet industry needs in the region at the lowest total investment and operating costs,” said Tracy Cleckler, global commercial director, Dow Polypropylene Licensing and Catalysts business.

Per Brandtzag, Burel's chairman, noted: “Burel Industries’ primary reasons for selecting the Unipol PP Process include low investment costs, broadest product capabilities, scalability and advanced technologies.”
