INDONESIA TO BUILD FIRST INTEGRATED PE/PP PLANT; FACILITY WILL FEATURE
 UNION CARBIDE'S GAS-PHASE UNIPOL POLYOLEFINS TECHNOLOGY
 DANBURY, Conn., Feb. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- P.T. Pusaka Warna Polypropylene (Jakarta) today announced plans to build the country's first fully integrated polyethylene/polypropylene production facility at Serang, West Java, Indonesia. The 340,000 tonnes-per-year facility will use Union Carbide Corporation's (NYSE: UK) gas-phase UNIPOL(TM) polyolefins technology.
 Slated for startup during the fourth quarter of 1994, the new grass- roots plant will consist of a single 200,000 tonnes-per-year swing capacity UNIPOL polyethylene reactor and a 140,000 tonnes-per-year UNIPOL polypropylene production unit. Primary contractor for the project will be SINOPEC Engineering Inc. (SEI), Beijing, China.
 "When completed, the new facility will be a major step down the road to Indonesian self-sufficiency in these two vital plastic materials," said E. Tansil, president of P.T. Pusaka Warna Polypropylene, a member company of the Golden Key Group. "It will be capable of producing a full range of products -- from linear low-density to high-density polyethylenes and homopolymer to impact and random copolymer polypropylenes."
 According to Tansil, UNIPOL polyolefins technology was selected over competing processes because of its low investment costs, broad process and product range and environmental acceptability.
