The Next Evolution in Polyethylene Technology for the Plastics Industry
LyondellBasell continues its tradition of innovation with the introduction of a new, polyolefin process, Hyperzone PE technology, which produces high density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic with improved characteristics. Hyperzone PE technology enables the production of a broad-spectrum of HDPE plastic in one single plant whereas previous technologies require multiple plants. In addition, the technology is more economical to build and operate.
LyondellBasell is the global leader in the development and licensing of polyolefin processes and related catalysts and plans to make the Hyperzone PE technology available for licensing in the future.
HDPE plastics produced using the Hyperzone PE process technology exhibits enhanced characteristics, including:
- Superior toughness properties that make end-use products less likely to break or tear
- An improved resistance to degradation from exposure to the elements.
This enables customers to obtain an enhanced balance, never before achieved, between ease of processing the polyolefin and end-product durability in key plastics applications. Read the brochure for more information.
LyondellBasell is building the first commercial, world-scale Hyperzone PE plant in La Porte, TX. Plant start up is planned in 2019.
