The plants will be constructed in its second petrochemical complex in Cilegon, Banten Province, Indonesia. The complex will include a  polypropylene plant that will utilize LyondellBasell’s 5th generation Spheripol PP process technology to produce 450,000 metric tons per year (m.t./yr) of polypropylene.  The complex will also include a 300,000-m.t./yr low density polyethylene plant which will utilize Lupotech T process technology.

“The Spheripol process is recognized around the world to advance the quality of polypropylene products and to elevate  process efficiency” said Dan Coombs, Executive Vice President Global Manufacturing, Project, Refining, and Technology at LyondellBasell.  “Lupotech T is the market leader in high-pressure tubular LDPE technology offering low operating and investments costs to our customers.”
