The new UNIPOL™ PE Plant has a full-density range of PE resin product capability allowing IPP to access a broad array of HDPE and LLDPE product applications in both domestic and export markets. Additionally, IPP elected to utilize Univation’s advanced resin product technology, including PRODIGY™ Bimodal HDPE Technology with production capability for bimodal applications such as ISO certified PE100 pipe, high-performance bimodal films and light-weighted bimodal blow molding bottles for Household, Industrial & Chemical (HIC) applications. IPP also selected Univation’s ACCLAIM™ Unimodal HDPE Technology with capability to produce advanced unimodal products including durable unimodal HDPE PE80 pipe, high environmental stress crack resistance (ESCR) large part blow molded (LPBM) drums, and heavy-duty HDPE film liners.

lrkutsk Polymer Plant LLC is also accessing Univation’s advanced process control system, PREMIER™ APC+ 2.0, which provides state-of-the-art process control and economic optimization capability for the UNIPOL™ PE Process. To enhance the training of its operations staff, IPP will utilize

UNIPOL™ PE Virtual Process Software (UVPS) which is Univation’s latest platform for virtual plant simulation training for the UNIPOL™ PE Process.

Mr. Egor Fomin, director of Irkutsk Polymer Plant commented, “Providing significant, high-quality PE resins to supply both Russian and export markets needs was an important objective for the lrkutsk Polymer Plant”. Project teams from both lrkutsk Polymer Plant and Univation Technologies have already formed productive relationships.

“We are excited about this new world-scale UNIPOL™ PE Plant now underway by lrkutsk Polymer Plant and very pleased Univation was selected as their PE licensor for this important project,” said Dr. Steven Stanley, president of Univation Technologies. “This plant will provide lrkutsk Polymer Plant with the proven technology to deliver high performance products, consistent quality and maximum single-line capacity to produce both HDPE and LLDPE resins critical to meet Russian domestic needs and, importantly, demand growth in key export regions.”
