Grace licenses PP process technology to Nayara Energy in India

By Mary Page Bailey |

W.R. Grace & Co. (Columbia, Md.; www.grace.com) has licensed its UNIPOL Polypropylene (PP) Process Technology to Nayara Energy.  Located at the Vadinar Refinery in Gujarat, India, the new, world-scale capacity UNIPOL PP facility will utilize 450,000 metric tons per year (m.t./yr) of propylene feedstock. Nayara Energy intends to produce phthalate-free homopolymer products for the Indian market using the most advanced PP process and catalysts technology available.

Sergey Denisov, Nayara Energy’s Chief Development Officer said, “Investing in the UNIPOL PP process technology gives us the ability to make a broad range of phthalate-free products for our customers.  As the demand for these advanced PP products increases in the region, Nayara Energy wants to ensure that it is using the most up-to-date, reliable, and cost-effective technology to meet our customer’s needs.”

Laura Schwinn, President, Grace’s Specialty Catalysts business, said, “Grace is excited to partner with Nayara Energy.  We are confident that the wide range of homo-, random-, and impact copolymer products, combined with our non-phthalate CONSISTA catalysts, will give Nayara Energy the edge it is seeking in the polypropylene resin marketplace.”
