MIDLAND, US: Dow Chemical has licensed its UNIPOL Polypropylene Process Technology to Qinghai Salt Lake Industry Co, for its new 160 kta polypropylene unit. The unit will provide polypropylene as part of Qinghai’s integrated magnesium metal project to produce homopolymers, random copolymers and impact copolymers. Installation at Qinghai Salt Lake Industry Co. is scheduled to start in 2012, with start-up expected in the second half of 2013.

“The plastics market in China is expanding and this new license confirms the interest in using advanced polypropylene process and catalyst technology to produce differentiated resins for a variety of applications,” said Tracy Cleckler, Global Commercial Director, Polypropylene Licensing and Catalysts business, Dow.

As part of its magnesium metal project, Qinghai will utilize coal as feedstock to produce ethylene and propylene through coal gasification and then use ethylene and propylene as feedstock for the polypropylene unit.

“With UNIPOL PP process technology we are able to meet growing market demand for polypropylene in China. We have chosen UNIPOL as it has the most advanced propylene process technology and offers the ability to produce the broadest spectrum of products in the world,” said the Project Director of polypropylene for Qinghai.
