Ineos Technologies has licensed its Innovene PP process for the manufacture of polypropylene homopolymers, random copolymers and impact copolymers to the Ningxia Baofeng Energy Group Company Limited in Ningxia, China.
The 300 KTA Innovene PP plant will produce a wide range of polypropylene products to serve the growing market in China.
The olefin feedstock for the polypropylene plant will be produced using locally sourced coal via the Methanol-to-Olefins (MTO) process – an increasingly important route to olefins in China. Ineos Technologies participates in this new sector by offering state of the art process technologies to make polyolefins and other chemicals from olefins. It is the fourth licence acquired by Chinese companies building MTO plants.
Peter Williams, CEO of Ineos Technologies, commented: "Ineos Technologies is proud to serve this growing coal chemicals sector in China and is pleased to be recognised by this industry as a leader in polyolefins technologies.”
