Univation, Linde to cooperate on PE and cracker integration

HOUSTON, US/MUNICH, GERMANY: The Linde Group’s Engineering Division said that it has entered into a cooperation agreement with Univation Technologies aimed at providing performance and cost efficiencies for the production of polyethylene resins.

The parties expect that this exclusive partnership will deliver measurable benefits to resin producers globally.

Univation and Linde will work toward delivering streamlined technology, capital expense and operational expense reduction opportunities and improved quality in early stage design to ethylene cracker and polyethylene projects. The companies believe this will be valuable for both new construction projects as well as retrofit projects.

“Our combination of technology and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) capabilities is a key driver to deliver competitive solutions to the petrochemical industry. We are excited to leverage the enormous potential synergies inherent in this close collaboration with Univation Technologies,” said Dr Christian Bruch, executive board member, Linde AG and responsible for the company’s engineering business.

“As the leading polyethylene technology licensor around the world, we are constantly looking for ways to deliver more value for our licensees. This agreement with Linde allows us to take our solution-driven approach to the next level covering the entire UNIPOL PE process platform including back-integration into cracker operations and improved economics for both new plant and retrofit projects,” said Dr Steven Stanley, president, Univation Technologies LLC.

This agreement is non-exclusive for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) phase of UNIPOL PE process projects (can produce a wide range of commercial products).
