Iran: Basell technology for new HDPE plant

Gharb Petrochemical Complex has selected Basell’s Hostalen technology for a new 300 KT per year high density polyethylene plant. The plant is to be built at Kermanshah, Kermanshah province, Iran, with start-up planned for 2007. The new plant will be part of National Petrochemical Company (NPC)’s 11th olefin project.
Uhde GmbH of Germany was selected as the engineering contractor for the new plant, together with Sazeh of Iran. To date, five Hostalen licenses have been granted in Iran, whereas the global licensed annual capacity is well over four million tonnes. Hostalen is a dual reactor, low-pressure, slurry process for the production of HDPE. The two reactors can be operated in series or in parallel, to customize product properties.
