Jiangsu Sailboat selected technology from LyondellBasell

July 29/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- LyondellBasell announced that Jiangsu Sailboat Petrochemical Co. Ltd. will use again LyondellBasell Lupotech T high-pressure polyethylene technology at their facility located in Lianyungang City, Jiangsu Province, P.R. of China, said the company.

The process technology will be used for a 200 KTA ethylene vinyl acetate copolymer (EVA) and low-density polyethylene (LDPE) line to produce EVA products with vinyl acetate comonomer.

"Growth of EVA and LDPE applications remain strong in particular in higher value applications such as solar panel lamination and encapsulant which are growing contributors in the energy transition,” said Neil Nadalin, Director Global Licensing and Services at LyondellBasell. Nadalin added, “The technology of choice for producing both EVA and LDPE applications in high demand, remains our high-pressure tubular Lupotech T process offering lowest operating and balanced investments costs to our customers."

Mr. Bai Wei, General Manager of Jiangsu Sailboat Petrochemical Co., Ltd stated, “This is already the second Lupotech T line and our third polyethylene line based on LyondellBasell’s proprietary technology allowing us to produce EVA copolymers and high-quality LDPE products. We are very satisfied with the production capability and plant performance of the Lupotech T technology. Therefore, selecting LyondellBasell’s technology was again a natural choice for expanding our production capability with this additional project."

Decades of experience in high-pressure application design makes the Lupotech T process the preferred technology for EVA/LDPE plant operators. High reliability, unmatched conversion rates and effective process heat integration are key attributes of the Lupotech T process, designed to ensure this technology’s on-going energy efficiency.

More than 13,000 KTA of Lupotech T EVA/LDPE production capacity has been licensed by LyondellBasell in over 70 lines around the world. New licensees take advantage of LyondellBasell’s in-house expertise of continuous production improvement, product development according to the latest environmental regulations, and our knowhow in high pressure design, by optionally joining our Technical Service program.

In 2013, Jiangsu Sailboat Petrochemical Co. Ltd. (JSPCL) also selected LyondellBasell’s Lupotech T and Lupotech A process technologies for a new plant scheduled to be built in Lianyungang, China.

Ethylene and propylene are the main feedstocks for the production of polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), respectively.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 953,400 tonnes in the first five months of 2021, which virtually corresponded to the same figure a year earlier. High density polyethylene (HDPE) shipments decreased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market were 607,8900 tonnes in January-May 2021, up by 33% year on year. Shipments of homopolymer PP and PP block copolymers increased, whereas deliveries of PP random copolymers decreased.

LyondellBasell is one of the largest plastics, chemicals and refining companies in the world. Driven by its 13,000 employees around the globe, LyondellBasell produces materials and products that are key to advancing solutions to modern challenges like enhancing food safety through lightweight and flexible packaging, protecting the purity of water supplies through stronger and more versatile pipes, and improving the safety, comfort and fuel efficiency of many of the cars and trucks on the road.
