LyondellBasell announced that ZapSibNeftekhim L.L.C, a fully owned subsidiary of SIBUR, has selected the Spheripol process technology from LyondellBasell for a new 500 KT per year single-line polypropylene (PP) plant to be built in Tobolsk, Russia Federation. Start-up is projected after 2017.

“This will be the largest capacity plant built to date using the Spheripol process technology,” said Bob Patel, Senior Vice President of Olefins and Polyolefins, Europe, Asia, International (EAI) and Technology at LyondellBasell. “This will provide ZapSibNeftekhim an economical method to produce a wide range of premium-quality PP grades.”

Key features of Spheripol technology include leading monomer consumption, unmatched product quality, an operability among the best in the industry, fast start-up and grade changes, and capacities of up to 550 KT per year, which make it the technology of choice for the production of polypropylene.

In addition to the Spheripol process, LyondellBasell’s portfolio of licensed polyolefin technologies and associated technical services includes:

  • Spherizone – the latest-generation polypropylene technology based on a multi-zone reactor for the production of polypropylene and novel polyolefins
