Wilton LDPE plant set for September start-up

August 18/2009

August, 18 ( -- The delayed low density polyethylene (LDPE) plant at Wilton, Teesside will begin production in September, according to its owner SABIC.
The plant, owned by Huntsman until SABIC’s takeover, had an original start-up date of the fourth quarter of 2007. This was put back to February 2008 following delays to construction work, which eventually began in 2006. Full capacity is expected to be reached during 2010. SABIC says that the commissioning work at the plant is “well advanced”.
The 400,000 t/y plant will be the largest of its kind in the world, and has been built at a cost of £250m ($407m). Around 110 permanent jobs have been created at the site.
