LyondellBasell: New PP Compounding Plant in China

LyondellBasell Industries, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, has announced the start-up of its new polypropylene (PP) compounding facility in Nansha, China, with a nominal capacity of 15,000 tonnes per year. The new facility is operated by Guangzhou Basell Advanced Polyolefins Co., and supplies polypropylene composites and alloy materials to the automotive and appliance industries.

”Speaking at the Grand Opening Ceremony of the Nansha plant, Paul Yeates, Senior Vice President of LyondellBasell’s Advanced Polyolefins Business, said, “One of the most important regions for us in terms of our future growth is Asia, and in particular, China. We recognized the importance of the market in China back in 2005 when we opened our first PP compounding plant in the country in Suzhou. With the opening of our second plant in China, our total PP compounding capacity in the country is now 50,000 tonnes annually.”

The company operates 15 PP compounding plants in 12 countries on four continents, which produce 1.2 million tons per year. The company’s 16th PP compounding plant will be on-stream in Saudi Arabia next year, and plants in India and Russia are planned for the near future.
