Epsilon Opens PP Facility In Pennsylvania

The first polypropylene plant to be built in the northeast U.S. in 29 years has been brought on-stream by Epsilon Products, Marcus Hook, PA. The 260 million pound annual capacity plant will produce a mix of homopolymer, impact copolymer and random copolymer products for the plastics, textile and nonwovens industries.

The new plant, which utilizes "Unipol" process technology and "Shac" high activity catalyst systems, will have as a priority the production of grades for BCF and staple fiber for carpeting and nonwovens, film grades including OPP and specialty impact grades for consumer products and transportation equipment. Monomer is being supplied by Sun Refining and Marketing's nearby Marcus Hook refinery.
