W. R. Grace & Co., an independent supplier of polyolefin catalyst technology and polypropylene (PP) process technology, has licensed its UNIPOL® PP process technology to the new MTO gas chemical complex, located in the Bukhara region of Uzbekistan, to Enter Engineering. The UNIPOL PP technology facility is expected to be launched by 2025 and will include one reactor line with the capability to produce 257 000 tpy of polypropylene.

Enter Engineering Pte. Ltd, a construction company in the region, will act as a licensee on behalf of the JV Jizzakh Petroleum LLC who will own and operate the gas chemical complex.

The process technology delivers technology, innovation, and services for plant lifetime performance, and provides a broad range of PP homopolymers, random copolymers, and impact copolymers. The PP technology process is a state-of-the-art engineering technology that achieves mechanical and operational simplicity and delivers leading total installed cost and operating expense, accelerated project schedules, fast startups, grade transitions, and business results. The process technology, coupled with Grace’s proprietary catalyst and donor systems and the UNIPOL UNIPPAC® process control software, allows for maximum performance.

“We welcome Enter Engineering and Jizzakh Petroleum into the UNIPOL PP technology family and we are excited to launch our first UNIPOL PP process technology in Uzbekistan,” said Laura Schwinn, President of Grace’s Specialty Catalysts business. Schwinn added: “We are committed to their success and our team of experts are ready to support this project for years to come – from construction to ongoing operations and optimisation. We look forward to seeing Jizzakh Petroleum becoming the premier supplier of polypropylene resins in the region.”
