ROTTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS: LyondellBasell will restore a low-density polyethylene (LDPE) line in Wesseling, Germany, that has been out of service since January 2012. Startup of the new line is targeted for mid-2013.

The Wesseling LDPE line has historically been used to produce LDPE grades for healthcare applications. Restoration of this LDPE line will enhance the company’s ability to supply to this important market. LyondellBasell also announced the creation of a new sales group within its European specialty polyolefins sales organization to further strengthen its position to support customers in the medical industry.

“The restoration of the LDPE production line at Wesseling and the increased focus we will obtain through our new sales organization will enable us to better serve our customers and help them to optimize their supply chain through our higher production capability,” said Bob Patel, Senior Vice President, Olefins and Polyolefins - Europe, Asia and International, LyondellBasell.
