The specialised technology from Lyondell Basell will be used for Lianyungang Petrochemical Co.’s 400 KT per year high density polyethylene (HDPE) plant which is expected to be constructed in the Jiangsu Province, China.
Rotterdam/The Netherlands – Lyondell Basell has recently announced that Lianyungang Petrochemical Co. (a company of Zhejiang Satellite) has selected the Hostalen ‘Advanced Cascade Process’ (Hostalen ACP) technology from Lyondell Basell. The technology will be used for a 400 KT per year high density polyethylene (HDPE) plant to be built at Lianyungang, Jiangsu Province, China.
The project represents the 10th Hostalen ACP line licensed in China. With this license, the total design and operating capacity of Hostalen ACP lines in China will exceed 3.4 million tonnes per year.
Hostalen ACP process technology manufactures high-performance, multi-modal HDPE resins with an industry-leading stiffness/toughness balance, impact resistance, high stress cracking resistance and processing advantages used in film, blow moulding and pipe applications.
