Repsol starts the second construction phase of its new metallocene linear low density polyethylene plant

During the first quarter of 2016 (Q1 2016), Repsol will complete the construction work of its new metallocene polyethelene plant at its Tarragona site. Repsol plans to start up the plant and begin production and marketing of this new product during Q2 2016.

Throughout the construction phase, the high density polyethylene (HDPE) plant in Tarragona will remain temporarily stopped to allow the safe and efficient execution of all the required activities.

Metallocene linear low density polyethylene (mLLDPE) offers very appealing features when transformed into film, such as high transparency and high gloss. Due to its extraordinary tear and puncture resistance it is ideal for packaging applications. Metallocene linear low density polyethylene enhances the wide range of products already offered by Repsol adding to its low and high density polyethylene, EVA and EBA copolymers as well as polypropylene grades.

With this new investment, Repsol reinforces its commitment to its customers by offering differentiated products that provide high added value and boosts their strengths to increase their competitiveness.
