Polypropylene products can be used in high performance automotive, appliance, and packaging applications.
Polypropylene products can be used in high performance automotive, appliance, and packaging applications.

ExxonMobil has started detailed engineering work on a potential US Gulf Coast project to expand polypropylene manufacturing capacity by up to 450,000 tons a year to meet growing demand for high-performance, lightweight durable plastics.

A final decision on the investment, anticipated to be several hundred million dollars, is expected later this year. Facility startup could come as early as 2021.

The new facility will be capable of producing advanced polypropylene products which can be used in high performance automotive, appliance, and packaging applications. The potential project will create more than 600 jobs during peak construction and more than 60 permanent jobs when production starts.

This investment is one of 13 new facilities planned to grow ExxonMobil’s chemical manufacturing capacity in North America and Asia Pacific by about 40%. These investments, including two world-class steam crackers in the US, will enable the company to meet increasing demand in Asia and other growing markets.

“Abundant supplies of domestically produced oil and natural gas have reduced energy costs and created new sources of feedstock for US chemical manufacturing. Most of our planned investment in the Gulf Coast region is focused on supplying emerging markets like Asia with high-demand products, which ultimately will spur new economic growth locally,” said John Verity, president of ExxonMobil Chemical Company.
