LyondellBasell will supply its Hostalen ACP polyethylene process technology to Hengli Petrochemical for the construction of a new high density polyethylene (HDPE) unit in east China.

The 400 kilotonne per annum plant will be built at the Hengli Petrochemical Industrial Park (HPIP) on Changxing Island in Dalian, Liaoning Province, the multinational chemical company announced 12 April.

“Hostalen ACP process technology allows our customers to produce high-performance multimodal HDPE products exhibiting a combination of properties not achievable with unimodal or bimodal grades” explained Dan Coombs, executive vice president global manufacturing, refining, projects and technology at LyondellBasell.

Hostalen ACP process technology manufactures high-performance, multi-modal HDPE resins with high stiffness/toughness balance, impact resistance, high stress cracking resistance and processing advantages used in film, blow molding and pipe applications, the company added.
