LONDON (ICIS--China’s Ningxia Baofeng Energy Group is expected to start up its new polypropylene (PP) project in 2015, Pete Grant, business director at INEOS Technologies, said on Wednesday.

The process will be used at a 300,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant in Ningxia, China.

The plant will produce a wide range of PP products, including homopolymers, random copolymers and impact copolymers, to serve the growing market in China, INEOS said.

“INEOS Technologies is proud to serve this growing coal chemicals sector in China and is pleased to be recognised by this industry as a leader in polyolefins technologies,” said Peter Williams, CEO of INEOS Technologies in an earlier statement.

The olefin feedstock for the PP plant will be produced using locally sourced coal via the methanol-to-olefins (MTO) process.

Financial details and dates for when the plant will implement the process were not disclosed.

INEOS Technologies recently licensed its Innovene Polypropylene Process to China’s Yanchang Petroleum Yanan Energy and Chemical Company for a 300,000 tonne/year PP plant in Shaanxi province.
