Columbia/USA – W. R. Grace & Co. (Grace) has received a commitment from PT Kilang Pertamina International (PT KPI) to use Grace’s Unipol PP technology, which is part of its larger initiative, the Trans-Pacific Petrochemical Indotama (TPPI) Olefin Complex Development Project in Indonesia. This project will empower PT KPI to increase refinery and polyolefin capacity by addressing the gap between strong demand growth of petrochemicals and the shortage in domestic production capacity.
