INEOS wins LL/HDPE Technology Licence contract in India

INEOS Technologies has reached agreement with Brahmaputra Cracker and Polymer Limited (BCPL) to license the Innovene G process for the manufacture of polyethylene in a plant to be built at Lepetkata, District Dibrugarh, Assam in north east India.

The plant will have a production capacity of 220,000 tonnes per annum in a single gas phase reactor. It will be capable of manufacturing a wide range of LLDPE and HDPE grades suitable for use in a variety of downstream film, rotomoulding, extrusion, raffia and injection moulding applications. It will form part of the Assam Gas Cracker Project, a grass roots integrated petrochemical complex being set up by BCPL. Process design of the plant is well underway. 

Peter Williams, CEO of INEOS Technologies commented: “We are delighted that Innovene G technology has been chosen for this new plant. As part of the Assam Gas Cracker Project it will make a major contribution to the growth of the local polymer industry and to the development of India’s north east region.”
