LyondellBasell Wins China Spheripol PP Contract

10.06.2021 - LyondellBasell's Spheripol PP technology has been chosen by Inner Mongolia Baofeng New Material for a 2 million t/y complex in China.

The complex, which will comprise four PP lines each producing 500,000 t/y, will be built in Erdos, Inner Mongolia.

Neil Nadalin, LyondellBasell's director of licensing, described the award for the four lines as "an outstanding achievement in a single production complex."

Inner Mongolia Baofeng New Material is a fully owned subsidiary of Ningxia Baofeng, which in March also selected LyondellBasell as the technology licensor for a PP/PE complex in Yingchuan City. This complex will comprise a 500,000 t/y PP plant, a 400,000 t/y HDPE plant and a 250,000 t/y LDPE/ethylene vinyl acetate copolymer line.

A timescale for the projects has not been disclosed.
