• GAIL’s polyethylene facility in UP goes on stream

    GAIL (India) Ltd said on Tuesday the company has started its first UNIPOL PE process line to produce 400,000 tonnes of polyethylene (PE) annually.

    With this, the total production capacity at the company’s petrochemical plant at Pata, Uttar Pradesh, is now 810,000 tonne per annum.

    “GAIL’s flexible high-density polyethylene (HDPE)/ linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) swing plant provides access to a full range of resin applications which will allow GAIL and its customers to capture new market opportunities as the PE market’s demands are changing,” the company said in a statement.

    “Introduction of UNIPOL PE Resin products in the Indian market has started receiving positive feedback from customers. The GAIL team at the project site appreciated the US-based Univation Technologies team for providing good support to the commissioning of the project, right from the hook up and start-up of the new plant,” the statement added. Tie Domi Jersey
