Hyundai Chemical Company selects UNIPOL™ PE technology from Univation

Hyundai Chemical Company, Ltd. has chosen Univation Technologies’ UNIPOL™ PE Technology for a 300 kTA high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plant to be located at Hyundai’s site in Daesan, Republic of Korea.

Hyundai will utilize a broad range of Univation’s HDPE product technology portfolio including the ACCLAIM™ K-100 Catalyst Series for advanced HDPE products such as film, large part blow molding (LPBM) and geomembrane applications. Additionally, Hyundai has taken advantage of the flexible design of their UNIPOL™ PE Reactor line by investing in future production capabilities for both linear-low density polyethylene (LLDPE) and metallocene polyethylene (mPE) products.

Hyundai will also implement Univation’s latest process control system, PREMIER™ APC+ 2.0, which delivers state-of-the-art process control specifically designed for UNIPOL™ PE Technology to maximize production rates, facilitate product transitions and enhance overall economic performance.

“We are delighted that Hyundai Chemical selected Univation’s UNIPOL™ PE Technology for their new plant in the Republic of Korea,” said Dr. Steven Stanley, President of Univation Technologies. “This new UNIPOL™ PE Reactor will provide Hyundai with a robust portfolio of competitive and well-recognized HDPE products covering a breadth of applications highly suitable for key growth opportunities in domestic and export markets.”

Mr. Jung, Im-ju, Executive Director / Head of Process Department of Hyundai Chemical Plant, commented, “Regional demand for high-performance HDPE products continues to exceed expectations within the markets where we participate – and this new capacity addition was recognized as essential to satisfy our customers’ growing needs.” Mr. Jung, Im-ju continued, “We are delighted to work with Univation on this important construction project for our new UNIPOL™ PE Reactor line and we look forward to its safe start-up and the introduction of our HDPE supply into the market.”
