By Chemical Processing Staff

Jul 23, 2014

CB&I and Clariant announced the new Ziegler-Natta (ZN) polypropylene catalyst production plant in Louisville, Kentucky is on schedule to begin production in 2015. The plant is part of a long-term strategic partnership between Clariant’s catalysts business unit and CB&I’s Lummus Novolen technology business. Based at Clariant’s largest US production hub, the facility will combine innovative catalysts jointly developed by both companies with high-capacity output to serve the fast growing polypropylene industry.

As a result of the intensive joint efforts from research and development teams of Clariant and CB&I, a series of new ZN polypropylene catalysts to be produced in the Louisville plant has been developed recently. The PolyMax and NHP (Novolen High Performance) catalyst series is a drop-in catalyst based on a ‘one-for-all’ solution. Both series are currently being tested in several commercial polypropylene plants.
