Additionally, Univation will supply polymerisation catalyst systems, including catalysts for high-density blow molded PE (HDPE), linear low-density PE (LLDPE) and cast high-density PE (HDPE) grades.

Previously, KazMunayGas, signed a licensing agreement with Chevron Phillips Chemical for their first polymerisation unit, also with an output capacity of 625,000 tons of polyethylene per year.
