LyondellBasell Industries has launched a new Avant M single-site catalyst system designed to extend the performance capabilities of its Metocene polypropylene (PP) manufacturing technology platform.

“This new single-site catalyst family provides additional product capabilities within our existing Metocene PP portfolio, which is already extremely versatile,” said Yves Bonte, Senior Vice President of LyondellBasell's Polypropylene Business.

”The catalyst family extends the range of homopolymer, random and impact copolymer grades by offering performance from very low to very high melt flow rates, while maintaining outstanding levels of homogeneity, transparency and other features typical of single-site catalysis.”

According to Jim Seward, Senior Vice President of LyondellBasell's Catalyst Business, “We have been successfully using this catalyst system at our LyondellBasell facilities. This new family offers significant advantages above our existing metallocene catalyst portfolio.

With mileage levels comparable to conventional Ziegler-Natta catalysts, smooth operability and excellent process control, it confirms the impressive potential of Metocene PP technology.”

Only recently, a Metocene PP technology license was granted to PolyMirae in South Korea. In addition to the Metocene PP technology, LyondellBasell's portfolio of licensed polyolefin technologies and associated technical services is comprised of:

Lupotech– leading high-pressure tubular and autoclave processes for the production of LDPE and EVA copolymers
Spherilene– advanced swing-gas-phase process for the production of LLDPE, MDPE and monomodal and bimodal HDPE
Hostalen– leading low-pressure slurry process for the production of high-end multimodal HDPE
Spheripol– leading polypropylene technology for the production of homopolymer, random and heterophasic copolymers
Spherizone– latest-generation polypropylene technology, based on a multi-zone reactor for the production of polypropylene and novel polyolefins

LyondellBasell Industries is one of the world's largest polymers, petrochemicals and fuels companies. LyondellBasell are the global leader in polyolefins technology, production and marketing; a pioneer in propylene oxide and derivatives; and a significant producer of fuels and refined products, including biofuels.
