GAIL India selects Grace UNIPOL technology for its new PP plant in Pata

August 24/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- W. R. Grace & Co. a leading independent supplier of polyolefin catalyst technology and polypropylene (PP) process technology, has licensed its UNIPOL PP Process Technology to GAIL (India) Limited, according to Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The UNIPOL PP process technology will be used for a 60 KTA PP plant located at their existing petrochemical complex in Pata, India.

Mr. Shri M. V. Iyer, Director of Business Development, said, We are excited to partner with Grace and their UNIPOL PP Process Technology at our existing gas cracker complex in Pata, India. The total project economics, which included a catalyst supply agreement, made this an easy choice for us. We plan to produce a variety of homo-, random, and impact- copolymer resins using our existing propylene supply.

Grace's all gas-phase UNIPOL PP Process delivers technology, innovation, and services for plant lifetime performance. The versatile process technology provides the broadest range of PP homopolymers, random copolymers, and impact copolymers in the industry.

As MRC reported before, GAIL India Ltd restarted its polyethylene 400,000 tons/year high density polyethylene (HDPE)/linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) swing plant in Pata, Uttar Pradesh just a couple of days after the company shut down the unit on 25 September 2020 due to feedstock supply disruption.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,176,860 tonnes in the first half of 2021, up by 5% year on year. Shipments of exclusively low density polyethylene (LDPE) decreased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market were 727,160 tonnes in the first six months of 2021, up by 31% year on year. Supply of homopolymer PP and block-copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymers) increased. Supply of statistical copolymers of propylene (PP random copolymers) subsided.
