After becoming the first license of Chevron Phillips Chemical’s proprietary technology for production of metallocene-based polyethylene resins, Repsol has implemented this innovative technology at its plant in Tarragona, Spain. This is a great endeavour due to the fact that this is a swing plant capable of producing both metallocene linear low density polyethylene (mLLDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE).

Repsol has completed this project and run the first tests with success. The whole process has been completed on time and with zero incidents regarding the safety of people, facilities and the environment.

This new range of metallocene-based polyethylene grades, Repsol Resistex®, offers higher-value end-products that confirm Repsol’s focus on product differentiation and specialties. With the launch of this new range, Repsol furthers its commitment to its European polyethylene customers.
