LyondellBasell grants Lupotech T license to Borealis

By Gerald Ondrey |

Borealis AG (www.borealisgroup.com) has selected LyondellBasell’s (Rotterdam, Netherlands; www.lyondellbasell.com) Lupotech T technology for a new 350,000 ton/yr low density polyethylene (LDPE) plant; start-up is expected in 2013. “This investment is an important step in our growth strategy and our selection of LyondellBasell’s LDPE technology supports this position,” says Alfred Stern, vice president Innovation & Technology at Borealis. “This is our second polyethylene process technology licensed to Borealis in the last three years, which builds upon a solid relationship that will continue well into the future, says Just Jansz, president of LyondellBasell’s Technology Business”. “Lupotech T, now with a total of eight million tonnes per year of licensed capacity, is the clear market leader in high pressure tubular LDPE technology,” adds Jansz. Key features of Lupotech T technology include low manufacturing and investment costs, fast start-up and grade changes, and a broad product portfolio, which make it today’s technology of choice for the world-scale production of LDPE and EVA copolymers.
