Inner Mongolia ChinaCoal Mengda New Energy & Chemical Industry Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of China National Coal Group Corp., has signed a license agreement with Union Carbide Chemicals & Plastics Technology LLC, a subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company for its 300 KTA polypropylene plant.

ChinaCoal Mengda will license UNIPOL Polypropylene Process Technology from Dow Licensing & Catalysts for the polypropylene plant, part of a 500 KTA engineering plastics project.

The plant is targeted to start-up in 2014 in Ordos City, Inner Mongolia, China, and produce homopolymers, random copolymers and impact copolymers.

“We strive to help our customers meet the growing polypropylene market needs in Asia and worldwide,” said Tracy Cleckler, president of Union Carbide Chemicals and Plastics Technology, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company. “With low total investment and operating costs, the UNIPOL PP Process is gaining momentum with polypropylene producers globally. Licensees benefit from our technology and product expertise and our advancements in catalyst systems technology, which enable the production of a broad spectrum of PP resins.”

There are currently 47 operating lines worldwide using UNIPOL Polypropylene Technology from Dow Performance Plastics Licensing and Catalysts. The UNIPOL Polypropylene Process is an all gas-phase process for producing the broadest range of polypropylene resins. Its simple design is consistent in terms of product quality and energy efficiency, requiring no equipment for handling, separating or recycling solvents. The system’s fluidized-bed reactors and high performance CONSISTA Catalyst Systems and SHAC Catalyst Systems give manufacturers the flexibility to produce homopolymers, random copolymers and impact copolymers.

Resins produced by UNIPOL Polypropylene Technology from Dow account for 17 percent of global polypropylene output. Polypropylene is a versatile plastic used in packaging, durable goods, automotive parts, non-wovens, fibers and consumer applications.
