ExxonMobil has started up the first of its two new PE lines, located in Mont Belvieu, Texas, according to a press release on the company’s website.

The company’s new PE units are able to produce 650,000/ton of PE each. The new unit is expected to boost the PE capacity of the complex by nearly 1.3 million tons/year in accordance with the company’s capacity expansion plans.

Details about which grades of PE will be produced at the newly started line were not revealed.

Once the second line is also operational, the multi-million project is aimed to increase the plant’s overall capacity to 2.5 million tons/year, making it one of the largest PE plants in the world.

The second unit will reportedly produce HDPE and LLDPE grades upon completion, although it is not clear when the second unit will be started up.

According to the statement, the company is planning to export a significant quantity of PE from its new facility later this month.
