PT Chandra Asri Petrochemical has commenced construction of a new Polyethylene Plant project with a capacity of 400 kta at its integrated petrochemical complex in Cilegon, Banten, Indonesia.

Jakarta/Indonesia — The new PE plant will produce High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE), and Metallocene LLDPE (mLLDPE). Product applications for LLDPE and HDPE include blown films and a large variety of everyday products such as plastic bags. Erwin Ciputra, President Director of Chandra Asri, mentioned at the groundbreaking ceremony that Indonesia's current PE market demand is estimated to be around 1.4 million tons per year and that this demand would continue to grow along with the country's GDP. The new plant is going to serve as an additional source for domestic supply of PE products. The company already operates a 336 kta PE plant in the country.

Total investment for the project is estimated at $ 350 million. Completion is scheduled for late 2019 and operations are planned to commence early 2020. EPC contractors include Toyo Engineering Corporation (Toyo-Japan) and PT Inti Karya Persada Tehnik (IKPT-Indonesia).
