China: Uhde to build HDPE plant

Uhde GmbH (Dortmund, Germany), has been awarded a contract by PetroChina Company Ltd in Beijing to design a 300,000 tonne-per-year polyethylene plant (HDPE). The contract includes the licence, basic engineering, supply of critical equipment and also providing training and commissioning support to the customer’s personnel. The plant will be built at PetroChina Jilin Petrochemical Company’s site in Jilin, some 1100 km NE of Beijing, and is due to come on-stream in late 2005. Based on Basell’s Hostalen® process, it will produce bimodal HDPE, i.e. a wide range of advanced polymer resins with exceptional mechanical properties, which can be efficiently processed into pipes, film, and large and small blow mouldings. It is the first time that Basell bimodal Hostalen® technology will be used in China.
