According to media reports, Shell has acquired the obligatory air emission permits for its proposed ethane cracker planned to be built in Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA.

The company stated that the air emission permit was a significant step for the project. However, the company also reported that they will run some initial site development work before making a final decision on whether to build the project or not.

The planned cracker will cost around $4 billion and is expected to start production in 2019. The new ethane cracker is expected to be able to support the production of 1.5 million tons/year of ethylene, 500,000 tons/year of gas-phased HDPE, 500,000 tons/year of slurry HDPE, and 500,000 tons/year of LLDPE.
