An engineering, construction and services company, KBR (NYSE:KBR) revealed on Monday that it won a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract by INEOS Olefins & Polymers USA (INEOS), for its high-density polyethylene
(HDPE) plant to be built in the Americas.
The high-density polyethylene
chip is now found in around two thirds of UK plastic food trays and milk bottles.
The DynaMc Auto 250 can fuse high-density polyethylene
pipes sized from 63 mm to 250 mm, while the Auto 412 fuses pipe from 110 mm to 340 mm.
Yansab will produce ethylene, high-density polyethylene
and butene I and 2.

(HDPE): Used for milk jugs and trash bags.
The plant, with a final production capacity of 1.32 million tons per year of high-density polyethylene
, low-density polyethylene and polypropylene, will serve as a source of input-feed for units in the production of plastics, industrial parts and automobile parts.

"These projects should have about a two-year payback and will generate meaningful earnings growth for our shareholders in every part of the industry business cycle," said Lipton.The projects include: upgrading products; improving reliability and expanding the Iow-density polyethylene unit at Mooretown, ON, optimizing the high-density polyethylene
unit at Mooretown to increase throughput rates and improve product quality; and debottlenecking high-density polyethylene
and linear Iow-density polyethylene production at the St.
The Allegro[R] M sealant can be extrusion coated onto various substrates including film, foil or even paper to create a cost effective way to a achieve a "clean peel." The sealant seals to numerous rigid cup or tray structures including high-impact polystyrene (HIPS), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), amorphous polyethylene terephthalate (APET), polypropylene (PP) and high-density polyethylene
Plastic tray/cup types include: high-impact polystyrene (HIPS), high-density polyethylene
(HDPE), polypropylene (PP), amorphous polyethylene terephthalate (APET), polyethylene terephthalate glycol (PETG), polystyrene (PS), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polycarbonate (PC) and Barex[R].
Dow Europe GmbH: March 1--60 [euro]/MT for all grades of low-density polyethylene resins and high-density polyethylene
resins, Dowlex polyethylene resins, Attane ultra low density polyethylene copolymers, Elite enhanced polyethylene resins and Aspun fiber grade resins.
PET (polyethylene terephthalate) and HDPE (high-density polyethylene
) continue to experience strong demand, though pricing for HDPE is surging ahead of that for PET.
