According to market sources, Brazil’s Braskem has begun feasibility studies for a proposed new PP plant in the US. No specific date has been set as to the completion of the study.

Previously, the head of Braskem America stated that the company was in talks regarding the construction of a new PP plant in US. The construction of any new PP plant is reportedly dependent on the availability of attractively-priced propylene feedstock. The proposed new plant is slated to have a world scale capacity of around 450,000-500,000 tons/year.

The company currently has five PP plants in the US, with production capacities of 225,000 tons/year at Seadrift, Texas, 330,000 tons/year at La Porte, Texas, 350,000 tons/year at Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania, 240,000 tons/year at Kenova, West Virginia and 320,000 tons/year at Freeport, Texas.
