LONDON (ICIS news)--Basell, National Gas Co of Trinidad and Tobago (NGC) and National Energy Corp of Trinidad and Tobago (NEC) will build a 450,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant in the Caribbean state, they said on Friday.
The three companies have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) confirming their intention to build and operate the fully integrated plant, Basell said in a statement.
“The propylene produced at the complex will be the feedstock for a worldscale 450,000 tonne/year PP plant,” it added.
The plant, which is to be undertaken in conjunction with MTP technology supplier Lurgi AG, is tentatively scheduled to come on stream in 2012.
