LyondellBasell has announced that China Petroleum Materials Ltd Corp. (CPMC) and Petrochina Liaoyang Petrochemical Co. (LYPC) have selected LyondellBasell's Spherizone technology for a polypropylene (PP) plant planned to be built at Liaoyang, Liaoning Province, China.

“LyondellBasell is very pleased to expand its relationship with Petrochina with this license at Liaoyang,” said Jim Seward, Vice President Technology Business and Sustainability at LyondellBasell. “With the ability to produce products having superior properties and performance, the Spherizone process technology is a new benchmark for polypropylene production.”

"This process technology was selected through an international bidding process on the basis of the technical exchanges with various licensees. It has the extraordinary ability to produce high value-added polypropylene products," said Mr. Li Guihe Vice President of LYPC.

The Spherizone process is a new and advanced PP technology expanding the product portfolio beyond the traditional range of PP grades. It also allows the production of entirely new families of propylene-based polymers using its multi-zone circulating reactor system. This project represents the ninth Spherizone line licensed in China.
