COLUMBIA, US: W R Grace & Co has licensed its Unipol PP Process Technology to Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL). 

Located in Rasayani near Mumbai in Maharashtra, India, the proposed world-scale capacity Unipol PP facility will produce 450 KTA of propylene. BPCL intends to manufacture phthalate-free polymer products for the Indian market using the most advanced PP process and catalysts technology available.

Grace's all gas-phase Unipol PP Process Technology provides the broadest range of PP homopolymers, random copolymers, and impact copolymers in the industry. This process technology has no moving parts inside of the reactor and requires less equipment than any alternative. It is a reliable, safe, and stable operation that leads to lower capital, operating, and maintenance costs.

“Investing in the Unipol PP process technology gives us the ability to make a broad range of phthalate-free products for our customers. As the demand for these advanced PP products increases in the region, BPCL wants to ensure that it is using the most up-to-date, reliable, and cost-effective technology to meet our customers’ needs,” said R Ramachandran, BPCL’s Director (Refineries).

“Grace is excited to partner with BPCL. We are confident that the wide range of polymer products, combined with our non-phthalate CONSISTA catalysts, will enable BPCL to give their customers the edge they seek in their markets,” added Laura Schwinn, President of Grace’s Specialty Catalysts business.
