Fourth Polypropylene Production Line in Map Ta Phut

HMC Polymers Expands Production in Thailand

LyondellBasell, Rotterdam, Netherlands, one of the largest plastics, chemicals and refining companies in the world, is expanding its presence in Southeast Asia through its joint venture, HMC Polymers Company Limited, which will build a fourth Polypropylene production line at its site in Map Ta Phut, Thailand. Constructing the new unit will allow HMC to maintain domestic market share and aims to address the projected five to six percent annual demand growth for polymers in the Southeast Asia Region.

The new unit will use LyondellBasell’s Spherizone production technology and will have a nameplate annual production capacity of 250 kt.

Polypropylene for the Domestic Markets

HMC produces polypropylene mainly for the domestic Thailand, China, Southeast Asia, Indian Subcontinent and Australian markets.
Spherizone technology allows for the production of highly differentiated polypropylene (PP) products for applications such as sewage, drainage and household fresh water pipes.

LyondellBasell is a licensor of polypropylene and polyethylene technologies with more than 280 polyolefin process licenses globally. HMC Polymers currently operates a Spherizone line and with this addition, HMC becomes the first company in the world with two Spherizone licenses. The polymer company also operates two additional polypropylene lines at its Map Ta Phut site using LyondellBasell’s Spheripol technology.
