Formosa reveals Point Comfort PE/PP expansion technologies
HOUSTON, May 7, 2018 (PCW) -- Formosa today announced the process technologies for its new PE and PP units under construction in Point Comfort, TX.
The site's new LDPE unit will utilize ExxonMobil's tubular process technology, with a capacity of 400,000 mt/year. This is Formosa's first North American LDPE asset.
The second PE project, a 400,000 mt/year "dual-purpose" Unipol process plant, will produce a mix of HDPE and LLDPE resins.
Finally, the company has licensed technology from Japan Polypropylene for a 250,000 mt/year PP expansion.
The new units are expected to start up in 1H 2019. -- David Barry
