“Polypropylene production at Polimery Police commenced last week, and production capacity will be gradually increased, with sales of Gryfilen® slated to begin in August. The selected distributors are market leaders which will enable us to establish a strong position for our new product across Europe,” says Tomasz Hinc, President of the Management Board of Grupa Azoty S.A.
Polimery Police is Grupa Azoty Group’s new chemical complex based on state-of-the-art solutions: the Oleflex UOP technology for the production of polymer-quality propylene using the propane dehydrogenation (PDH) method and the Unipol GRACE technology for the production of polypropylene. These technologies help achieve, among others, low consumption of raw materials and energy, coupled with high production flexibility, which is particularly important in the evolving and strongly competitive European plastics market, where a top quality and highly-customised product is in great demand.
The Polimery Police complex is being constructed under an EPC contract. The contract was signed on May 11th 2019 between Grupa Azoty Polyolefins S.A. and Hyundai Engineering Company, Ltd. The construction site was officially handed over to the contractor on January 7th 2020. The process to launch polypropylene production began on June 22nd 2023, with the completion of all works under the project expected in the second half of 2023.
