Jacobs Engineering has been awarded a contract to complete a feasibility study for the expansion of Borealis’ polypropylene plants in Belgium. The study was awarded under the terms of the existing framework agreement with Borealis.

Dallas/USA — The potential capacity increase of the polypropylene plants would take full advantage of the additional propylene supply from a planned propane dehydrogenation (PDH) installation at the existing Borealis production site in Kallo, Belgium. Jacobs was recently awarded a contract to complete a front end engineering design (Feed) study for this contemplated world-class PDH plant, which has a targeted annual production capacity of 740 kilotons.

Borealis has selected Jacobs as a partner for this feasibility study which will assess a series of capacity increases through the debottlenecking of existing PP assets in Belgium, the Austrian-based producer announced in a statement.
