Jinneng Chemical (Qingdao) Co Ltd selectes LyondellBasell technology

LyondellBasell today announced that Jinneng Chemical (Qingdao) Co., Ltd. has again selected LyondellBasell’s leading polypropylene technology for a new world scale production facility.

The facility will include a 450 kiloton per annum (KTA) polypropylene (PP) plant using LyondellBasell’s Spherizone technology as well as a 450 KTA PP plant using LyondellBasell’s Spheripol technology. The facility will be built in Qingdao City, Shandong Province, Peoples Republic of China.

“Jinneng Chemical’s choice to again use LyondellBasell’s PP technology for their Qingdao City facility, will enable them to produce a full range of PP products to serve an increasingly demanding Chinese polymer market” said Neil Nadalin, Director of Licensing at LyondellBasell. Nadalin added, ”Product differentiation is of increasing importance; and in selecting the Spherizone technology, our licensees are best prepared to take on that challenge. Additionally, we are very pleased that Jinneng Chemical has again chosen the easy-to-operate Spheripol process, as their phase 1 Spheripol process line approaches start-up”.

Mr. QIN Qingping, Founder and CEO of Jinneng Science & Technology Company., Ltd., parent company of Jinneng Chemical (Qingdao) Co. Ltd., stated, “We are excited to expand our existing relationship with LyondellBasell. The selected Spherizone technology will allow us to effectively enter new markets and applications due to superior product properties whereas the Spheripol technology will support our aim to grow effectively in volume on a global benchmark basis”.

The Spherizone multi-zone circulating reactor (MZCR) provides a unique and innovative platform to manufacture PP products with novel architecture and enhanced product properties. With this contract, now more than 25 plants operating Spherizone process technology have been licensed worldwide.

Spheripol is the leading PP process with more than 30 million tons of licensed capacity. The latest fifth generation Spheripol technology includes process improvements that further maximize operational efficiency.

Both plants will commence operations using LyondellBasell’s Avant ZN catalyst.

New licensees take advantage of LyondellBasell’s in-house expertise of continuous production improvement, sustainable product development and catalyst knowhow, by optionally joining our Technical Service program.

In addition to the Spheripol and Spherizone process technology, LyondellBasell’s portfolio of licensed polyolefin processes and catalysts includes:
* Hostalen – Leading low-pressure slurry process for the production of high-performance multimodal HDPE.
* Lupotech – The market leader on high pressure technology offers, with its high conversion rates and effective heat recovery system, the lowest operating and investment costs for the production of low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymers.
* Spherilene – Flexible gas phase process technology for the production of LLDPE, MDPE and HDPE.
* Metocene PP – Innovative add-on technology for the production of specialty polypropylene products using single-site catalyst systems
* Avant – Advanced Ziegler-Natta, including non-phthalate, chromium and metallocene catalysts for entire range of polyolefin production.
