W. R. Grace & Co. (Grace), an independent supplier of polyolefin catalyst technology and polypropylene (PP) technology, has received a commitment from PT Kilang Pertamina International (PT KPI) to use Grace’s UNIPOL® PP technology, which is part of its larger initiative, the Trans-Pacific Petrochemical Indotama (TPPI) olefin complex development project in Indonesia. This project will empower PT KPI to increase refinery and polyolefin capacity by addressing the gap between strong demand growth of petrochemicals and the shortage in domestic production capacity.

The 600 000 tpy PP plant will be designed to produce homopolymers, random and impact copolymers to cover domestic and international market needs.

Laura Schwinn, President of Grace’s Specialty Catalysts business, said: “We thank PT KPI for trusting Grace UNIPOL PP technology to deliver the technology, innovation and services that PT KPI will use to grow and enhance the polymer market in Indonesia and beyond. As a member of the UNIPOL PP technology global community, through the PPartner ProgramTM, they can gain access to services and knowledge for the lifetime of the plant to enhance efficiency and performance.”
