Lummus and Citroniq Announce Licensing and Engineering Agreements for Green Polypropylene Plants


Lummus and Citroniq Announce Licensing and Engineering Agreements for Green Polypropylene Plants

Lummus Technology, a global provider of process technologies and value-driven energy solutions, and Citroniq Chemicals announced that the two companies have signed licensing and engineering agreements for green polypropylene plants in the U.S. The first plant, scheduled for completion in 2027, will produce 400kta of bio-polypropylene and will be first in North America with this production capability.

This agreement demonstrates the progress we continue to make with Citroniq in establishing the first world-scale sustainable bio-polypropylene production process in North America. Combining Lummus’ leadership in polypropylene licensing with Citroniq’s carbon negative production capabilities will help us meet the growing demand for bio-polypropylene and accelerate the decarbonization of the downstream energy industry.

Romain Lemoine, Chief Business Officer of Polymers and Petrochemicals, Lummus Technology

In April 2023, Lummus and Citroniq formed a partnership to develop four green polypropylene plants in North America using Lummus’ VerdeneTM polypropylene technology suite. The licensing and engineering agreements announced today are for the first of the four plants.

Citroniq’s four-plant bio-polypropylene licensing agreement with Lummus Technology is a testament of our commitment to bring sustainable plastics at world-class scale to the marketplace.

Mel Badheka, President & Co-Founder of Citroniq Chemicals

The Verdene suite includes four Lummus technologies: ethanol to ethylene technology, dimer technology, olefins conversion technology and polypropylene technology. Lummus is the only technology provider able to supply all the proven, low energy technologies to produce renewable green polypropylene from biogenic ethanol.
