Lyondell Basell’s Lupotech T high-pressure polyethylene technology will be used in two separate production lines at Shandong Yulong Petrochemical Co.’s new facility in China. The production lines include a 200 KTA low density polyethylene line as well as a 300 KTA LDPE and ethylene vinyl acetate copolymer line which will be used to produce LDPE with vinyl acetate comonomer.
Lyondell Basell has received the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) Plus certification for its cracker in Wesseling, Germany, and European polymer sites. The certificate will help the company in achieving its aim of becoming an industry leader in the production and marketing of recycled and renewable-based polymers.
With an aim to expand its presence in the China market, Lyondell Basell has signed definitive agreements with Liaoning Bora Enterprise Group. Under the terms of the agreement, the joint venture will produce polypropylene and high-density polyethylene in the Asian country.
Lyondell Basell announced the cooperation with Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Kit) to advance the chemical recycling of plastic materials. The focus of the venture is to develop a new catalyst and process technology to decompose post-consumer plastic waste, such as packaging into monomers for reuse in polymerization processes.
