LyondellBasell Industries has announced the start-up of a new polypropylene (PP) compounding facility in Altamira, Mexico, with a nominal capacity of 30 KT per year.

The company is the leading global producer of PP compounded products and supplies the automotive, appliance, electrical and electronics sectors.

"With this new facility," said Steve Dwyer, Vice President of LyondellBasell Automotive Americas, "we are in an ideal position to support the growth that our customers in the region are experiencing. This plant will use the latest technology to produce a wide range of high-performance, high-quality PP compounds."

The new plant is immediately adjacent to a PP manufacturing facility operated by Indelpro, a joint venture company of LyondellBasell Industries. The Altamira compounding plant will use PP feedstocks from Indelpro to supply compounds to the region's automotive and appliance manufacturing base.
