Himont opens PP plant.

Production of 120,000 metric tons per year of polypropylene has begun at Titan Himont Polymers. The company is a joint venture formed in April, 1989 between Himont, Wilmington, DE, the Chao Group of Taiwan and PNB Equity Resource Corporation; the plant is located in Jahore, Malaysia on the same site as the Titan Polyethylene and Titan Petrochemicals plants.

The Himont venture will supply the country with 80% of its output in the coming year. Using Himont's Sheripol process technology, the plant produces homopolymer and copolymer resins for use in a broad range of products in both domestic and export markets.
