The process technology will be used for a 450 000 tpy high density polyethylene (HDPE) facility to be built in Pulau Muara Besar, Brunei Darussalam.
“Products from the Hostalen ACP process are an excellent fit for the growing market need for applications requiring multi-modal HDPE resins,” said Neil Nadalin, Director of Licensing at LyondellBasell. Nadalin added: “This new licence confirms once again the trust investors and operators place in our leading polyolefin expertise.”
Chen Liancai, CEO of Hengyi stated: “We selected the Hostalen ACP process technology for its extraordinary ability to produce strong and long lasting products such as PE pipes, film and many other HDPE based applications.”
With these new capacity additions, LyondellBasell has licensed over 9 million tpy of benchmark multi-modal HDPE resins.
The Hostalen ACP low-pressure slurry process technology manufactures high performance, multi-modal HDPE resins with an increased stiffness/toughness balance, impact resistance and high stress cracking resistance used in pressure pipe, film and blow molding applications.
The Hengyi HDPE plant will commence operations using Avant Z501 and Avant Z509 catalysts to produce a full range of multi-modal HDPE products.
