Chandra Asri boosting PE, PP capacity during scheduled plant maintenance

August 20/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Chandra Asri Petrochemical (CAP) plans to complete a polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) expansion during a 55-day turnaround maintenance at its facilities in Jakarta, Indonesia, as per Apic-online.

The 400,000-t/y swing PE unit will include the production of high-density PE, linear low-density PE (LLDPE) and metallocene LLDPE, the company earlier said.

Based on Univation Technologies' XCAT metallocene PE technology, the plant will be integrated into CAP's existing naphtha cracker complex, where it operates a 336,000-t/y PE unit.

CAP's PP facility will be expanded by 110,000 t/y to 590,000 t/y.  The new PE and PP capacities will come on stream in the fourth quarter of 2019 and will help the company meet domestic demand.

Maintenance, which began on 1 Aug. 2019, is being conducted on the PE, PP and butadiene plants, while the styrene monomer facility is operating as usual.

As MRC informed before, in June 2018, W. R. Grace & Co., the leading independent supplier of polyolefin catalyst technology and polypropylene (PP) process technology, granted a license which allows CAP to expand its existing UNIPOL PP plant. The world-scale capacity UNIPOL PP facility, located in Ciwandan, Indonesia, will be expanded to 590 KTA of polypropylene.

CAP is the largest integrated petrochemical company in Indonesia and operates the countrys only world-scale size Naphtha Cracker. The CAP plant is strategically located in Banten province, providing convenient access to key customers.
