ROTTERDAM, NETHERLANDS: Braskem Idesa SAPI, a joint venture of Braskem SA and Grupo Idesa SA de CV, has selected LyondellBasell’s Lupotech T process technology for a new 300 KT per year low density polyethylene (LDPE) plant. The plant will be built at the Coatzacoalcos Petrochemical Complex in Veracruz, Mexico, and is scheduled for start-up in 2015.


“To successfully compete in the LDPE market in North America, a process technology such as Lupotech T is required,” said Roberto Bischoff, chief executive officer of Braskem Idesa. “It delivers leading manufacturing cost performance and a very broad product portfolio.”


“As the first tubular LDPE license granted in the NAFTA region in more than 20 years, it is further evidence of the performance leadership of Lupotech T for the world-scale production of LDPE and EVA copolymers,” said Kaspar Evertz, Vice President of Licensing, LyondellBasell. Lupotech T is the world’s most widely used high pressure LDPE process. Since 2000, LyondellBasell has licensed 20 Lupotech T plants representing nearly six million tonnes of annual licensed capacity.
