Polyolefin plantsLinde harnesses third-party technologies to engineer world-class polyolefin plants, which polymerize monomer building blocks to produce modern commodity plastic materials such as polyethylene and polypropylene
Our offering extends along the complete project lifecycle for polyolefin plants, from feasibility studies and basic design engineering packages (BDEP) through front end engineering design (FEED) to complete engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) execution. We cover every step of the polyethylene production process, including raw material purification, catalyst preparation, polymerization, resin degassing, additive handling, pelleting, vent recovery, pellet blending and storage, bagging, palletizing and bulk loading. In addition, we can include all necessary utilities, off-sites and infrastructure measures in the project scope. We have executed a wide range of EPC polyethylene projects, including facilities with world-scale capacities of up to 800 kilotons per annum (kta). In engineering execution, the largest single train is designed for 650 kta polyethylene. We are an approved bidding contractor for both UNIPOL™ PE technology licensed by Univation Technologies, and for UNIPOL™ PP technology, licensed by W.R. Grace.
