PetroChina has selected Univation Technologies' UNIPOL PE Process to manufacture over 1 million tpa of polyethylene at three new facilities to be constructed at Daqing (Heilongjiang Province), Fushun (Liaoning Province), and Pengzhou (Sichuan Province). Each facility will be designed to produce linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE), high density polyethylene (HDPE) and bimodal HDPE using Univation's advanced PRODIGY Bimodal Catalyst technology.
Upon completion of these projects, PetroChina will operate nine UNIPOL PE Process lines with a total capacity of nearly 2.5 mln tpa. PetroChina's Daqing affiliate has been operating China's first UNIPOL PE Process line for nearly 20 years, and the selection of the UNIPOL PE Process for its new facilities demonstrates PetroChina's confidence that Univation will meet their product quality and production requirements well into the future. As the demand for PE increases in China and product needs change, Univation's process technology, supported by our advanced catalysts, will allow PetroChina to take advantage of additional opportunities.
