Borealis' new polyethylene bench scale reactors up and running in Linz

November 09/2009

November, 09 (chemie.de) -- A year ago Borealis announced the successful completion of the laboratory reactors for polypropylene (PP) polymerisation at the international Innovation Headquarters in Linz. A team of international experts worked on the second stage of a step-changing innovation project for polyethylene (PE) - reactors, which has now been completed. Three additional laboratory reactors are now up and running. These new reactors are being used for PE polymerisation. During summer, the first test samples were produced.
 
The new laboratory reactors allow a hybrid operation mode for both PE and PP and they herald a new approach in the use of bench scale reactors to accurately mimic a continuous pilot or plant process.
 
"Even in the short time that the small reactors have been running, we have created some new inventions which are on their way to becoming patented and we are further strengthening the accelerated product development with corresponding processing equipment, says Michael Benisch, R&D Service Manager Borealis. "The new laboratory reactors have a high degree of automation, safety and functionality, which allow maximum flexibility with respect to hydrogen and comonomer use.
