The impact

The new contract with  Lianyungang Petrochemical for Hostalen ACP also signifies LyondellBasell’s (LYB) tenth Hostalen ACP line licensed in China that exceeds a capacity of 3.4 million tons per year.

Jim Seward, LyondellBasell’s vice president for technology business and sustainability, said, “We are grateful to Zhejiang Satellite for selecting our technology. With this contract, LyondellBasell has licensed more than 1 million tons of Hostalen ACP capacity this year. This clearly demonstrates this is the process technology of choice for the production of high-performance multimodal HDPE products.”
