According to market sources, Mexico’s Etileno XXI project, a joint venture between Brazil’s Braskem (75%) and Mexico’s Grupo Idesa (25%) will begin producing on-spec ethylene on Sunday and will start up a PE line next week.

Etileno XXI is expected to start polyethylene production first with HDPE injection resin. After that, blowmolding production will start in the second round of start-ups. Low density PE production will start after mid-April. The project, located in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz state will have a production capacity of 1 million tons/year of PE in total.

Output from the complex will be primarily used to meet the growing need of Mexico’s PE market while the remainder is slated to be exported to the US and South America.
