Nearly 110 operating reactor lines in use in 25 countries produce more than 25 million tonnes of PE annually (mta) using the UNIPOL™ PE Process with additional lines currently in design or construction.

The UNIPOL™ PE Process can produce a wide range of commercial products. Whether your goal is to make high-density, medium-density or low-density PE, the UNIPOL™ PE Process can accommodate your market needs. Its wide range of densities and melt indices – with both . and broad molecular weight distributions – are the key to resin differentiation.

Companies interested in the high-density or low-density market and the ability to switch between LLDPE and HDPE choose the UNIPOL™ PE Process more than any other.

UNIPOL™ Process Diagram

One reason for the success of the UNIPOL™ PE Process is its simplicity. Supported by key technology patents, trade secrets and know how, the UNIPOL™ PE Process requires just three pieces of major rotating equipment: a cycle gas compressor, a vent recovery compressor and a pelleting system. Regardless of the catalyst used, the same stream-lined reactor and process design is used to produce PE products.
View our interactive UNIPOL™ PE Process diagram.

Other technology advantages include a system that feeds resin directly from degassing to pelleting which eliminates the need for intermediate storage; reducing capital and operating costs. UNIPOL™ PE Process capital costs are up to 35% lower than with other processes. Operating expenses can be up to 10% lower with the UNIPOL™ PE Process.
