LyondellBasell licences technology for mega HDPE unit

November 19/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- The Hengyi Industries petrochemicals joint venture (JV) in Brunei has selected LyondellBasell’s Hostalen technology for a 450,000 tonne/year high density polyethylene (HDPE) facility to be built in Pulau Muara Besar, Brunei Darussalam, said the company.

The plant - part of an integrated petrochemicals complex - will also use LyondellBasell’s catalysts to produce multi-modal HDPE products. Project costs or timelines for construction and completion were not disclosed.

Chen Liancai, CEO of Hengyi stated: “We selected the Hostalen ACP process technology for its extraordinary ability to produce strong and long-lasting products such as PE pipes, film and many other HDPE based applications."

With these new capacity additions, Lyondell Basell has licensed over 9000 KTA of benchmark multi-modal HDPE resins.

The Hostalen ACP low-pressure slurry process technology manufactures high performance, multi-modal HDPE resins with an increased stiffness/toughness balance, impact resistance and high stress cracking resistance used in pressure pipe, film and blow moulding applications.

The Hengyi HDPE plant will commence operations using Avant Z501 and Avant Z509 catalysts to produce a full range of multi-modal HDPE products.

As MRC informed earlier, LyondellBasell, the world’s largest licensor of polyolefin technologies, today announced that Hengyi Industries SDN BHD (Hengyi) will use the LyondellBasell Hostalen “Advanced Cascade Process” technology for a new facility.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,594,510 tonnes in the first nine months of 2020, up by 1% year on year. Only high denstiy polyethylene (HDPE) shipments increased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market reached 880,130 tonnes in the nine months of 2020 (calculated using the formula: production minus exports plus imports, exluding producers' inventories as of 1 January, 2020). Supply increased exclusively of PP random copolymer.

Hengyi Industries is a JV between China’s Hengyi and a Brunei government capital fund.
