Grace, Hengli Petrochemical technology agreement in China

COLUMBIA, US: W R Grace & Co said it licensed its UNIPOL® PP process technology to Hengli Petrochemical (Dalian) Refinery Co Ltd, a subsidiary of Hengli Group. The installation will be made at the company’s facility in Dalian, Liaoning province, China, and is expected to begin operations in 2019 using Grace’s leading SHAC®Ziegler Natta PP catalysts.

Hengli Petrochemical’s PP unit is part of its new refinery complex designed to process 20 million tonnes of crude oil annually. The facility will produce a total of 450 kilotonnes per year of homopolymer, random copolymer, and impact copolymer thermoplastic resins in dual reactor lines. The project is one of 22 UNIPOL® PP process technology reactor line licenses in China.

“Grace’s UNIPOL® PP process and SHAC® catalyst system offers us the most advanced PP product capacity available, and provides the most cost-effective technology to rapidly develop our portfolio of products,” said Hengli Corporation’s vice chairman, Chen Xinhua.

“We believe this represents more evidence that our industry-leading process technology and catalysts technologies combine to provide our customers unparalleled flexibility to deliver the resins that are in highest demand,” said Al Beninati, president of Grace’s specialty catalysts, business segment.

Grace’s UNIPOL® PP process technology is an all gas-phase technology with the industry’s broadest product capabilities coupled with stable and predictable operation.
