Nayara selects Grace Unipol process for world-scale PP facility in Gujarat

August 01/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- W.R. Grace & Co. has licensed its Unipol PP process technology to Nayara Energy for a new world-scale polypropylene (PP) plant to be built at the site of Nayara's 20-million-t/y Vadinar refinery in Gujarat, India, as per Apic-online.

The 450,000-t/y PP unit is part of Nayara's USD850-million investment at the refinery to expand into petro-chemicals.  A start-up date was not available.

The PP plant will use 450,000 t/y of propylene feedstock to produce a broad range of phthalate-free products for the Indian market.

"We are confident that the wide range of homo-, ran-dom- and impact copolymer products, combined with our non-phthalate Consista catalysts, will give Nayara Energy the edge it is seeking in the polypropylene resin marketplace," noted Laura Schwinn, president of Grace's Specialty Catalysts business.

As MRC reported earlier, in April 2019, W. R. Grace & Co. completed the USD416 million acquisition of the Polyolefin Catalysts business of Albemarle Corporation,

A leader in polyolefin catalysts and licensing, Grace has the worlds broadest portfolio of polypropylene and polyethylene catalyst technologies used to produce thermoplastic resins for a variety of applications. A leading innovator and strategic partner to its customers, Grace supplies catalyst solutions for all polyolefin processes, as well as polypropylene process technology and process controls. Grace employs approximately 3,700 people in over 30 countries.
