According to media reports, LyondellBasell has made its final decision to invest in the construction of a high density polyethylene (HDPE) plant on the Gulf Coast of the United States.

The company’s patented Hyperzone PE technology will be used in the 500,000 tons/year HDPE plant for the first time. The plant is expected to come on stream in 2019.

LyondellBasell’s CEO reported that this new technology offers a wide range of HDPE products with enhanced properties. These properties include improved stress crack resistance and enhanced balance between stiffness and impact strength. Through this technology, customers will be able to use less PE resins in some applications, which would increase resource efficiency.

LyondellBasell has a production capacity of 3.5 million tons/year of HDPE in total.
