Brazilian thermoplastic resin producer Braskem SA and petrochemical technology developer Ineos Technologies have entered into a strategic partnership for PE technologies, according to which Braskem is able to acquire licenses for Innovene S slurry and Innovene G gas-phase technologies to produce high density PE and linear low density PE in future petrochemical projects.

In addition, Braskem and Ineos Technologies have agreed to jointly conduct research and development programs for the slurry and gas-phase PE platforms.

According to a news release, the two Innovene S plants that will be a part of the Etileno XXI complex in Coatzacoalcos are scheduled to start-up in January 2015. The plants will produce a full range of monomodal and bimodal high density and medium density polyethylene resins, with a total name plate capacity of 750 KTA.

Key product areas to be served by the new plants include pipe, blow molded containers, injection molding parts, film, and rotomolded tanks.

“The aim of the partnership is to help ensure that the combination of INEOS’ Innovene G and Innovene S technologies remains the leading offer to the market in Latin America and beyond, responding fully to the future needs of the polymer industry,” said Dr. Peter Williams, CEO of Ineos Technologies.
