Braskem picks INEOS technology for Mexico PE project

November 10/2010

(ICIS) -- Brazilian chemicals major Braskem said on Tuesday it has selected INEOS technology for two of three polyethylene (PE) plants at its Ethylene XXI petrochemicals project in Mexico.

The two plants would be based on INEOS"s Innovene S slurry technology and would have a combined capacity of 750,000 tonnes/year of high density polyethylene (HDPE), said Braskem vice president Roberto Ramos.

The third plant would have the capacity to produce 300,000 tonnes/year of low density polyethylene (LDPE), he added.

There would be no linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) because the Mexican market demands more HDPE, Ramos noted.

The Ethylene XXI project is a joint venture between Braskem and Mexicos Idesa, and would comprise an ethane-based cracker plus downstream PE. Located in Coatzacoalcos, the project is scheduled to start up in early 2015.
