Sidi Kerir Petrochemicals Co (SIDPEC) has got the license for Unipol PP Process Technology by W R Grace, the leading independent supplier of polyolefin catalyst technology and polypropylene (PP) process technology. SIDPEC, leader in production of polyethylene in Egypt, will now produce value-added polypropylene products using the most up-to-date technology.

Located in Alexandria, Egypt, the new, world-scale capacity SIDPEC facility will produce 450 KTA of polypropylene.

Grace's all gas-phase Unipol PP Process Technology provides the most advanced and broadest range of homopolymers, random copolymers, and impact copolymers in the industry. As the simplest of all PP process technologies, without any moving parts inside of the reactor and less equipment than any alternative, its reliable, safe, and stable operation leads to lower capital, operating, and maintenance costs.

Mohamed A Abady, SIDPEC chairmen and CEO said, “Investing in the UNIPOL PP process technology gives us the ability to make a broad range of products for our customers using state-of-the-art technology while continuing to remain highly competitive in the region.”

Al Beninati, president of Grace’s Specialty Catalysts business, said, “Grace is excited to be the technology choice for SIDPEC’s plant in Alexandria, Egypt. The UNIPOL PP Process Technology will provide SIDPEC customers with some of the best and most varied homopolymer and random copolymer resins in the industry. We are confident that the wide array of resins and applications our technology and non-phthalate Consista catalysts enable, will give SIDPEC the leading edge in polypropylene resin production in the region.” (SV)
