SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Japan’s Prime Polymer is expected to obtain approval from its parent companies - Mitsui Chemical and Idemitsu Kosan - by the end of September for its plans to build a 300,000 tonne/year metallocene linear low density polyethylene (MLLDPE) plant in Asia,  a company source said on Monday.

The proposed plant, outside of Japan, is scheduled to be constructed by the end of 2014 for commercial production to begin in early 2015, the source said.

Prime Polymer has been looking at a few possible locations for the proposed plant, but Singapore was the most likely choice, he said.
