LyondellBasell (LYB), the world’s leading licensor of polyolefin technologies, announced that the Amur Gas Chemical Complex project, being implemented by SIBUR Holding PJSC, the largest integrated petrochemicals company in Russia, has selected LyondellBasell’s Spheripol technology for a new facility.

The process technology will be used for a 400 KTA polypropylene unit to be built in Svobodny, Amur region, Russia.

“We are honored that SIBUR has again opted to utilize the Spheripol technology for its Amur GCC project in the Russian Far East,” said Jim Seward, senior vice president of research and development, technology and sustainability at LyondellBasell. Seward added: “The process robustness and CAPEX effectiveness of the Spheripol process allows SIBUR to create benchmark polymers on a sustainable basis.”

“LyondellBasell's technology will help to achieve the highest level of diversification at Amur GCC and expand SIBUR's mostly homopolymer-oriented portfolio with a few PP random copolymers by adding a wide array of other copolymers, e.g. high-impact polypropylene-ethylene copolymers, and thermoplastic grades”, said Pavel Lyakhovich, Management Board Member and Managing Director of Basic Polymers Division at SIBUR. Total design capacity of AGCC is 2,700,000 KTA of PE and PP products.

Spheripol is the benchmark PP process technology with more than 30 million tons of licensed capacity. The latest fifth generation Spheripol technology includes process improvements that further maximize operational efficiency. The plant will commence operations using Avant ZN catalyst.

New licensees can take advantage of LyondellBasell’s in-house expertise of continuous production improvement, sustainable product development and catalyst knowhow, by optionally joining our Technical Service program.
