INEOS Technologies has licensed a process for the
manufacture of homopolymers, random copolymers and impact
copolymers to China Shenhua Coal to Chemical Xinjiang Coal
Chemical Co., a subsidiary of China Shenhua Group Corp.
The 450-kiloton/y polypropylene (PP) plant, downstream from
an MTO unit, is located in Urumqi City, Xinjiang Uyghur
Autonomous Region, China. It will produce a wide range of PP
products to serve the growing market in China.
"I am very proud of the fact that China Shenhua Group has again
chosen an INEOS technology platform for the
development of its polypropylene business, said Peter
Williams, CEO of INEOS Technologies.
In early 2012, Shenhua's coal to olefins business chose an
INEOS technology for its second MTO
complex, which is scheduled to be built by a subsidiary, Yulin
Coal Chemical Co., in the city of Yulin, Shaanxi
