South American polyethylene facility to be built.

Two Brazilian companies, Politeno S.A. Industria e Comercio and Promon Engenharia, recently signed a contract with Resinas Lineales Resilin CA, Maracaibo, Venezuela, to plan and give technical assistance in the construction of a Venezuelan polyethylene production plant. Scheduled to be operational by the second quarter of 1994, the facility will produce 150,000 tons per year of linear low density polyethylene for the packing and films industries.

The cost for the project is estimated at $320 million and will use technology from Du Pont Canada, Mississauga, Ontario, similar to the Politeno facility in Camacari, Brazil. At present, Politeno S.A. is exporting 6000-8000 tons of polyethylene, at $580-600 per ton, to Resilin to begin promotion of the product internally.
