Polyolefin plants are an integral part of petrochemical complexes. They are used to polymerise ethylene and propylene monomers and produce modern commodity plastic materials.
Polymerisation is carried out in the presence of special catalysts in the gas or liquid phase. The properties of the raw polymer product can be modified across a wide range by modifying these catalysts and adding co-monomers.
The polymers are processed into chips in an extruder. These pellets are then further processed to produce finished products.
Polymer plants comprise a polymerisation section and extrusion section as well as product packing and storage areas.
Linde Engineering harnesses third-party technologies from Univation, DOW Unipol, Phillips, and Ineos to engineer superior polyolefin plants and is an approved bidding contractor for Univation and DOW Unipol technology.
