Hyundai Chemical selects Unipol PE technology for new HDPE plant

By Scott Jenkins |

 

Hyundai Chemical Company, Ltd. (Daesan, South Korea; www.hyundaicorp.com/en/business/chemical) has chosen Univation Technologies’ (Houston; www.univation.com) UNIPOL PE Technology for a 300 kTA (kilotons per year) high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plant to be located at Hyundai’s site in Daesan, Republic of Korea.

Hyundai will utilize a broad range of Univation’s HDPE product technology portfolio, including the ACCLAIM K-100 Catalyst Series for advanced HDPE products such as film, large part blow molding (LPBM) and geomembrane applications. Additionally, Hyundai has taken advantage of the flexible design of their UNIPOL PE Reactor line by investing in future production capabilities for both linear-low density polyethylene (LLDPE) and metallocene polyethylene (mPE) products.

Hyundai will also implement Univation’s latest process control system, PREMIER APC+ 2.0, which delivers state-of-the-art process control specifically designed for UNIPOL PE Technology to maximize production rates, facilitate product transitions and enhance overall economic performance.

Hyundai Chemical was established from a strategic joint venture between Hyundai Oilbank and Lotte Chemical on May 20, 2014.
