LyondellBasell, the world’s largest licensor of polyolefin technologies, today announced that Inner Mongolia Rongxin Co., Ltd. (Inner Mongolia Rongxin), will use the LyondellBasell Spheripol and Hostalen Advanced Cascade Process (Hostalen ACP) technologies for its new facility.

The process technology will be used for a 500 kilotons per annum (KTA) Spheripol polypropylene plant and a 400 KTA Hostalen ACP high-density polyethylene plant, to be built in Ordos City, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, P.R. China.

“Inner Mongolia Rongxin has selected a process enabling them to produce differentiated polyolefins which includes amongst others durable goods and infrastructure material,” said Patrik Schneider, LyondellBasell senior director of licensing. Schneider added: “Having the right technology makes the differences for operators to deliver favorable results in a more selective market environment”.

Hu Yun, General Manager of Inner Mongolia Rongxin said, “Trust and confidence was a key consideration when selecting technology from the market leader in polyolefin technology. We are excited to implement this project and looking forward to foster our relationship with LyondellBasell”.

Spheripol technology is the leading polypropylene (PP) process technology with more than 35 million tons of licensed capacity. The latest fifth generation Spheripol technology includes process improvements that further maximize operational efficiency. The plant will commence operations using Avant ZN catalyst.

The Hostalen ACP process technology manufactures high performance, multi-modal HDPE resins with an industry-leading stiffness/toughness balance, impact resistance, high stress cracking resistance and process advantages used in pressure pipe, film and blow molding applications. The Hostalen ACP plant will commence operations using Avant Z501 and Avant Z509-1 catalysts to produce a full range of multi-modal HDPE products.
