LyondellBasell Industries NV (Rotterdam, the Netherlands) announced that Jiangsu Fenghai High-Tech Materials Co., Ltd. (Jiangsu Fenghai) has selected the LyondellBasell Lupotech T high-pressure polyethylene technology for a new production site.    
 
The Lupotech T process technology will be used for a 200,000-ton/yr vinyl acetate copolymer (EVA) line. The new line will be located in Lianyungang, Jiangsu Province, P.R. of China.
 
“This latest award once again demonstrates that our Lupotech T high-pressure process continues to be the process technology of choice for EVA production”, said Neil Nadalin, Director Global Licensing and Services at LyondellBasell. Nadalin added, “The on-going, global energy transition requires special EVA and LDPE resins for use in solar cell production and other applications, and this new license award will enable Jiangsu Fenghai to support driving this transition.”
 
Zhao Zan Li, General Manager of Jiangsu Fenghai High-Tech Materials Co., Ltd. stated, “By using a safe and market established high-pressure process technology, we can focus on the implementation of our project and thus can work towards a timely completion and successful start-up. We are pleased to have LyondellBasell as Lupotech T licensor engaged in our project.”
 
Decades of experience in high-pressure application design makes the Lupotech T process the preferred technology for LDPE/EVA plant operators. High conversion rates, demonstrated high plant availability and effective process heat integration are key attributes of the Lupotech T process, designed to ensure this technology’s energy efficiency.
