China: Process Technology Lyondell Basell’s Technology Finalized for Jiangsu Fenghai’s Complex
Lyondell Basell’s Spheripol and Hostalen ACP technology have been selected by Jiangsu Fenghai for its new polyolefin facility in China. The technology will help the company to produce polypropylene and high-density polyethylene products.
Rotterdam/The Netherlands – Lyondell Basell has recently announced that Jiangsu Fenghai High-tech Materials Co. (Jiangsu Fenghai), will use the Lyondell Basell Spheripol and Hostalen Advanced Cascade Process (Hostalen ACP) technology for its new facility.
Theprocess technology will be used for a 400 kilotons per annum (KTA) Spheripol and 300 KTA Hostalen ACP plant, to be built in Lianyungang, Jiangsu, P.R. China.
“We are delighted that Jiangsu Fenghai has awarded Lyondell Basell these substantial licenses for their first polyolefin project,” said Neil Nadalin, Director of Licensing at Lyondell Basell. Nadalin added: “Jiangsu Fenghai’s technology selection will enable them to produce benchmark polypropylene (PP) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) products using Lyondell Basell’s Spheripol and Hostalen ACP low pressure processes. These products continue to be in high demand in China today.”
The latest fifth generation Spheripol technology includes process improvements that further maximize operational efficiency.
The 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 process advantages used in pressure pipe, film and blow molding applications. The Hostalen ACP plant will commence operations using Avant Z501 and Avant Z509-1 catalysts to produce a full range of multi-modal HDPE products.
