Sinopec to use LyondellBasell process technology for new HDPE facility

By Mary Page Bailey |

LyondellBasell Industries N.V.  (Rotterdam, the Netherlands) announced that Sinopec Hainan Refining & Chemical Co., LTD. (Sinopec) will use the LyondellBasell Hostalen “Advanced Cascade Process” (Hostalen ACP) technology for a new facility.

The process technology will be used for a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) facility to be built in Yangpu, Hainan Province, P.R. China. The new plant will have a production capacity of 300,000 metric tons per year (m.t./yr).

“Multi-modal HDPE resins play a key role in addressing the growing demand for higher value polyethylene products,” said Neil Nadalin, Director of Licensing at LyondellBasell. Nadalin added: “The Hostalen ACP process is the leading low-pressure technology to deliver those benchmark polymer products.”

The Sinopec Hainan HDPE plant will commence operations using Avant Z501 and Avant Z509 catalysts to produce a full range of multi-modal HDPE products.
