SABIC Gets Cracking in New Dutch Polypropylene Plant

SABIC Gets Cracking in New Dutch Polypropylene Plant

SABIC continued its global expansion with the inauguration of a new polypropylene (PP) pilot plant in Geleen, the Netherlands, and the announcement of a new investment in a state-of-the-art PP extrusion facility to be built at the same location.

In line with SABIC’s strategic commitment to customer-driven innovation, the new PP pilot plant, located at the SABIC’s Global Technology Centre for Europe in Geleen, will design next-generation polypropylene materials. It is already on-stream using gas-phase polymerisation technology. The plant will enable accelerated development and commercialisation of highly innovative material solutions that meet the growing needs of various industries, including automotive, health and personal care, appliances and advanced packaging.

The facility will serve to develop grades with improved balance in stiffness and impact resistance, flow properties and other properties specific to target applications. SABIC plans to concentrate on development of impact grades of polypropylene, as well as random copolymers and homopolymers. It will also carry out experiments on advanced catalysts.
