Univation Technologies' UNIPOL PE Process for polyethylene manufacturing is to be adopted by PetroChina at three new facilities. The three facilities located at Daqing in Heilongjiang Province, Fushun in Liaoning Province and Pengzhou in Sichuan Province are expected to have an annual polyethylene productivity of over 1 mln tons. Upon completion, their major products will be linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE), high density polyethylene (HDPE) and bimodal HDPE.
PetroChina operates 6 UNIPOL PE Process lines with a total capacity of nearly 1.5 million tpa currently. The global total annual production using UNIPOL PE Process is about 10 mln tons, accounting for 16% of the global annual production.
