LyondellBasell said this week that Jinneng Chemical (Qingdao) Co. has selected its Polypropylene technology for a new world-scale production facility to be built in China.

The facility, to be built in China's Qingdao City, Shandong Province, will include a 450,000 mt/yr Polypropylene (PP) plant using LyondellBasell's Spherizone technology as well as a 450,000 mt/yr PP plant using LyondellBasell's Spheripol technology.

Both plants will commence operations using LyondellBasell's Avant ZN catalyst.
