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. Ltd.
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 Province.
