By Mary Page Bailey |

LyondellBasell (Rottedam, the Netherlands; www.lyondellbasell.com) announced that China Petrochemical International Co., Ltd (Sinopec International) and Sinopec-SK(Wuhan) Petrochemical Company Ltd., (Wuhan) have selected the LyondellBasell Hostalen “Advanced Cascade Process” (Hostalen ACP) technology.

The low-pressure slurry process technology will be used for a 300,000 metric tons per year (m.t./yr) high density polyethylene (HDPE) unit to be built in Wuhan, Hubei Province, P.R. China.

“LyondellBasell is proud to expand its relationship with Sinopec with this license at Wuhan,” said Jim Seward, vice president technology business, sustainability and O&P EAI JV management at LyondellBasell. “Sinopec’s selection reconfirms the trust the customer places in our technology. This project represents the ninth Hostalen ACP line licensed in China. With this license, the total design and operating capacity of Hostalen ACP lines in China will exceed three million tons per year.”

Seward added, “With our leading low-pressure slurry process and extensive technical support, we are confident that the new plant will enable Sinopec International and Wuhan to meet their production goals delivering HDPE products with outstanding properties.”
