Grace licenses UNIPOL® PP process technology to Datong Coal Mine Group

W. R. Grace & Co, the leading independent supplier of polyolefin catalyst technology and polypropylene (PP) process technology, has licensed its UNIPOL® PP Process Technology to Datong Coal Mine Group Co., Ltd. The UNIPOL® PP facility, located in Datong, China, will produce 430 KTA of polypropylene and is scheduled to be completed in 2022. The process technology along with Grace’s CONSISTA® catalysts enable the Datong Coal Mine Group Co., Ltd. to produce more than 200 resin grades so that they can provide more polypropylene options to their customers.

Grace's all gas-phase UNIPOL® PP Process Technology provides the broadest range of PP homopolymers, random copolymers, and impact copolymers in the industry. This process technology, without any moving parts inside of the reactor and requiring less equipment than any alternative, is a reliable, safe, and stable operation that leads to lower capital, operating, and maintenance costs.

Mr. Kuanqiang Jia, Chairman of Olefin Branch Company said, “We are excited to partner with Grace and invest in the UNIPOL® PP Process Technology. This technology enables us to efficiently produce a broad range of products for our customers and keep up with increasing demands for non-phthalate resins in the region.”

Laura Schwinn, President of Grace’s Specialty Catalysts business, said, “Grace is excited to be the PP process technology choice for Datong Coal Mine Group Co., Ltd. Our UNIPOL® PP Process Technology provides Datong with the most advanced PP product capabilities available, enabling them to produce world-class products that will help them meet the growing demands of the Chinese market.”
