Dow licenses UNIPOL process technology to Chinese firm

MIDLAND, US/SHANGHAI, CHINA: Oriental Energy has signed a license with Union Carbide Chemicals & Plastics Technology LLC, a wholly owned Subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company, for UNIPOL Polypropylene Process Technology for a 400 kilo tonne per annum polypropylene plant.

Oriental Energy’s plant will produce homopolymers, impact copolymers and random copolymers using propylene sourced from their upstream propane dehydrogenation unit. The plant will be located in Zhangjiagang, Jiangsu province, China. This will be the first Dow UNIPOL PP unit in the East China coastal area, the centre of the Chinese PP market.

“With UNIPOL PP Process Technology, Oriental Energy will produce PP resins that will give fabricators the opportunity to produce PP products that are lighter, clearer and cleaner, properties PP customers are always seeking. Oriental Energy will also be able to make PP resins that allow fabricators to run their lines at a faster rate, benefiting from the higher melt flow capability of some of the UNIPOL product grades,” said Tracy Cleckler, Global Commercial Director, Plastics Licensing & Catalysts, Dow.
