S Korean Lotte Group working toward merger of three petchem firms
South Korean conglomerate Lotte Group is looking to merge three of its petrochemical firms into a single entity, sources close to the plan said this week. Two of these -- Lotte Daesan and Honam Petrochemical -- operate naphtha crackers and downstream petrochemical plants. The third, KP Chemical, produces aromatics and synthetic fibers, among other products.
KP Chemical, based in Ulsan, has a yearly capacity of 200,000 mt of paraxylene, 40,000 mt of orthoxylene, 23,000 mt of benzene and 6,000 mt of toluene from one plant. At another plant, it is capable of producing 500,000 mt/year of paraxylene, 150,000 mt/year of orthoxylene, 70,000 mt/year of benzene and 14,000 mt/year of toluene.
KP Chemical Corp., an affiliate of South Koreafs Lotte Group
KP Chemical is the largest producer of purified isophthalic acid (C\t^_ PIA) in Korea. The company is a recognized leader in the export of petrochemical products with around 95 percent of its products, including PIA, going to China, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Russia, Europe and the U.S.
We annually produce 700,000tons of P-X, 1.1 million tons of PTA, 400,000tons of PPR, 60,000tons of MeX and 70,000tons of PIA products by using the vertically combined production system established in the Ulsan Plant Complexes 1 and 2, which measure 50,000 pyeong and 40,000 pyeong respectively. At KP Chemical, we are proud of holding the top spot in both domestic PIA and PPR production(4th and 7th places worldwide), as well as the No. 2 spot for P-X production and the No.3 place for PTA production in Korea.
Our production system purchases the basic raw material MX - separately acquired from an oil refinery - and produces P-X and MeX (Meta-Xylene). Our system is the only vertically combined production system in the world to use P-X and MeX as the raw materials for the follow-up process. The system greatly contributes to the production of high added value products with a simplified process, shared supplementary facilities and huge savings in investment, logistics and labor costs.

Korea's Honam eyes plan to build ethylene plant in Indonesia
petrochemical company Honam Petrochemical Corp is studying plans
to build an ethylene factory in Indonesia next year.
The project with a capacity of 450,000 tons a year is estimated to cost US$500 million, the Indonesian Association of Aromatics, Olefin and Plastic Industries said.
Honam will visit the country to conduct due diligence studies later this month, association secretary general Fajar Budiyono said.
The country's only
producer of ethylene is PT Chandra Asri, which has an annual
production capacity of 600,000 tons.
Budiyono said Honam has to rely on imports for naphtha as local producers could not provide enough supply of the basic material.
