Formosa Plastics announces process technologies for Texas PE & PP production expansions

May 11/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) – Formosa Plastics Corporation, U.S.A. announced the process technologies being used for the polyethylene and polypropylene production expansions in Point Comfort, Texas, as per Hydrocarbonprocessing.

• The new tubular low-density polyethylene (LDPE) plant’s technology has been licensed from ExxonMobil Catalysts and Licensing, LLC; the plant will have a production capacity of 400,000 MT/year.

• The new dual-purpose polyethylene (PE) plant’s technology will use UNIPOLTM PE Process technology, licensed from Univation Technologies, LLC. The plant will be able to produce both high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), with a combined production capacity of 400,000 MT/year.

• The new polypropylene (PP) plant’s technology has been licensed from Japan Polypropylene Corporation (JPP); the plant will add 250,000 MT/year of capacity to the site’s current PP production.

The addition of these three process technologies and plants at Point Comfort will expand the company’s product offerings and increase production flexibility. The LDPE plant will initiate the company’s entry into the North American LDPE market. The ExxonMobil technology is recognized for producing high-quality resins safely and reliably. Univation Technologies’ UNIPOLTM PE Process is world-renowned for producing outstanding HDPE and LLDPE resins. Since our first JPP license in 2001, our PP product offerings have expanded to include high impact copolymer and random copolymer resins.

"We look forward to introducing our new line of Formolene® LDPE resins and expanding our current Formolene® HDPE and LLDPE product lines,” states Ken Mounger, Vice President & General Manager, Polyolefins. “Our additional supply of Formolene® polypropylene will enable us to grow in key strategic markets, too."
