PuCheng Clean Energy Chemical has selected Univation Technologies' UNIPOL PE Process for a 300,000 tonnes-per year polyethylene high density/linear low density swing plant.

The UNIPOL PE Process facility will be fed by ethylene from a combination of coal-to-methanol and methanol-to-olefins technology.

The facility will be located in Shaanxi Province of China with a planned start-up in 2013.

Univation Technologies president Cindy Shulman said that the customers select UNIPOL PE Process technology because it offers safe and reliable operations with the most competitive economics, while producing the broadest range of PE products that can be adapted to serve the market’s changing needs.

Univation is committed to continually investing in process and catalyst technology to drive down system costs and improve overall output and performance.
