Technology for Thailand

LyondellBasell Grants Spherizone License to HMC Polymers

LyondellBasell, Rotterdam, Netherlands, announced its joint venture between PTT Global Chemical (PTTGC) and other Thai investors, HMC Polymers Company Ltd (HMC), has selected Spherizone technology for a 250KTA unit to be constructed in their petrochemical complex in Map Ta Phut, Rayong Province, Thailand.

HMC already operates two Spheripol polypropylene (PP) lines and one Spherizone line under license from LyondellBasell.

“We are pleased to be once again, with the Spherizone process, the technology provider of choice for the development of HMC petrochemical complex,” said Neil Nadalin, Director Global Licensing and Services at LyondellBasell. “The Spherizone technology enables polypropylene producers to expand their business and capture additional value through product differentiation.”

Propylene Production with Multi-Zone Circulating Reactor System

According to LyondellBasell, the Spherizone process is the newest and most advanced polypropylene technology expanding the product portfolio beyond the traditional range of polypropylene grades. Unlike other PP process technologies it also allows for the production of entirely new families of propylene based polymers using its unique multi-zone circulating reactor system.

The HMC plant will be the twenty-second plant in the world to be licensed under the Spherizone technology since its commercial launch in 2006, representing more than 7 million t of annual Spherizone PP capacity. The HMC Spherizone plant will commence operations using Avant ZN catalyst.
