W.R. Grace to license process technology to Chinese Dongguan Grand Resources

February 16/2017

MOSCOW (MRC) -- W. R. Grace & Co., supplier of polyolefin catalyst technology and polypropylene (PP) process technology, contracted to license its UNIPOL PP process technology to Dongguan Grand Resource Science & Technology Co. Ltd. in the fourth quarter of 2016, reported Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The installations will be made at the company's facility in Dongguan, Guangzhou province, China, and are expected to begin operations in 2019 using Grace's leading non-phthalate CONSISTA PP catalysts.

Dongguan Grand Resource's new facility will produce a total of 600 kilotons per year of homopolymer thermoplastic resins in dual reactor lines. The project represents the 20th and 21st UNIPOL PP process technology reactor line licenses in China.

Grace's UNIPOL PP process technology is an all gas-phase technology with the industry's broadest product capabilities coupled with stable and predictable operation. UNIPOL PP process technology is the simplest of all PP process technologies, with fewer moving parts and less equipment than any competing alternative. This leads to lower capital, operating, and maintenance costs while maximizing reliability.

"We are committed to delivering high quality products at competitive prices and Grace's UNIPOL PP process and CONSISTA catalyst system is the most economical way to rapidly develop our portfolio of products," said Dongguan Grand Resources Vice President Wang Ligui.

"Grace is proud to partner with Dongguan Grand Resources and continue our record of service to customers in China. We believe this represents more evidence that our industry-leading process technology and catalysts technologies combine to provide our customers unparalleled flexibility to deliver the resins that are in highest demand," said Al Beninati, President of Grace's Specialty Catalysts business segment.

As MRC informed before, in 2015, W. R. Grace & Co. announced that it would provide its UNIPOL PP technology and services to Yunnan Yuntianhua PetroChemical Co., Ltd. for a new PP production facility in Anning Yunnan, China. Yunnan Yuntianhua PetroChemical is a new subsidiary of Yuntianhua Group Co., Ltd., the largest chemical company in Kunming, Yunnan Province. With an expected opening in 2017, the new enterprise plans to purchase propylene from the PetroChina Yuannan refinery and build a unit that will produce polypropylene at a rate of150 kta, or kilotons per year.   

Grace is a leading supplier of polyolefin catalyst technology and has the broadest portfolio of polyolefin catalyst technologies of any independent polyethylene/polypropylene catalyst producer. Grace's industry-leading UNIPOL PP licensing and related catalysts include the UNIPOL UNIPPAC Process Control software, SHAC Catalysts Systems, and 6th Generation non-phthalate CONSISTA Catalysts Systems.
