Grace licenses UNIPOL® PP process technology to Grupa Azoty

W. R. Grace & Co, the leading supplier of polyolefin catalyst technology and polypropylene (PP) process technology, has contracted to license its UNIPOL® PP Process Technology to PDH Polska S. A. for a new facility in Police, Poland. With a capacity of 400 kilotons per year, the PP line is expected to begin operations in 2022.

The PDH Polska operation is a subsidiary of Grupa Azoty S. A. of Tarnów, Poland, a leader in the manufacture of nitrogen fertilizers and compounds, engineering plastics, organic and inorganic chemicals, and other chemical products.

Grace's gas-phase UNIPOL® PP Process Technology provides the most advanced and broadest range of PP homopolymers and copolymers in the industry. As the simplest of all PP process technologies, with fewer moving parts and less equipment than any alternative, its reliable, stable, and predictable operation leads to lower capital, operating, and maintenance costs.

Andrzej Niewinski, President of the Board, PDH Polska S. A., said, “As we expand our capabilities into PP production, we do so with a technology that has demonstrated success in making both leading commodity and superior specialty grades. This is in line with our track record of meeting the expectations of our customers.”

Al Beninati, President of Grace’s Specialty Catalysts business segment, said, “Grace is proud to partner with Grupa Azoty and continue our record of service to customers in Europe. The broad product capability and unparalleled flexibility of the UNIPOL® PP process will enable them to deliver the resins that are in highest demand from their customers.”
