W. R. Grace & Co. licenses its Unipol polypropylene process technology to PT Pertamina Rosneft Pengolahan dan Petrokimia (PRPP), a joint venture between Indonesia’s PT Pertamina and Russia’s Rosneft Oil Company. The Unipol PP facility, located in Tuban, Indonesia, will include two lines, each designed to produce 580KTA for a total of 1160KTA of polypropylene.
The agreement includes a long-term catalyst supply contract and a license for Grace’s Unipol PP Unippac process control (UUPC) software. This package, in conjunction with the Unipol PP process technology, allows PRPP and Grace to work closely together over the lifetime of the plant.
Grace's all gas-phase Unipol PP process technology and Consista sixth generation catalyst and donor technology provide a broad range of PP homopolymers, random copolymers and impact copolymers from a single catalyst.
