PT Polytama Propindo selected LyondellBasell’s Spheripol technology

LyondellBasell announced that PT Polytama Propindo will use the LyondellBasell Spheripol technology for expanding their existing facility.

The process technology will be used for an additional 300 KTA polypropylene plant to be built in Balongan, West Java, Indonesia, that is expected to be completed in 2024.

“PT Polytama Propindo is a long time customer of LyondellBasell and we are excited to be part of their growth aspirations with this new license for Spheripol technology,” said Jim Seward, Senior Vice President, R&D, Technology and Sustainability at LyondellBasell. Seward added, “Our Spheripol technology has been operating reliably at the Balongan site since the mid-90s, producing high value polypropylene resins. We therefore believe that the selection of this new Spheripol technology line was a natural choice for PT Polytama Propindo.”

Mr. Didik Susilo, President Director at PT Polytama Propindo stated: “The teams showed tremendous efforts to develop a site and specific solution allowing us to produce a wide range of polypropylene products based on LyondellBasell’s Spheripol technology. Opting again for a license from the market leader allows us to stay focused on implementing the project in a safe and timely manner.”
