Jiangsu Sailboat Petrochemical Co. has selected LyondellBasell’s Lupotech T and Lupotech A process technologies for a new plant scheduled to be built in Lianyungang, China, officials said on Wednesday.

Jiangsu said the plant will have a total plant capacity of 300,000 tpy for the production of low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and ethyl vinyl acetate (EVA).

LDPE and EVA polymers are in high demand, driven by an increasing need for consumer items ranging from shoes to specialty films, according to company officials. 

“We selected LyondellBasell’s Lupotech platform based on the leading manufacturing cost performance and the capability to produce high-quality LDPE and very high EVA content LDPE," said Zheng Guo Dong, general manager for Jiangsu Sailboat Petrochemical.

Key features of the Lupotech T tubular technology and the Lupotech A autoclave technology include low manufacturing and investment costs, fast start-up and grade changes, and high quality LDPE and copolymers with up to 40% EVA covering the entire range of melt flows and densities.

Proven single-line capacities of up to 450,000 tpy are available with Lupotech T, according to LyondellBasell officials.

The company says the more than 250 polyolefin process licenses granted by LyondellBasell are twice that of any other polyolefin technology licensor.
