The Production Technology Research Institute is actively carrying out catalyst development, process research, and quality control, geared specifically toward the actual production process.
The Production Technology Research Institute strengthens production competitiveness and consumer satisfaction
|Analysis Sector||The Institute is quickly responding to customer needs by promptly providing analytical data and conducting R&D on new analytics including shortening analysis time, automation of analytics, and performance of online analysis. It is also carrying out R&D on analytics in relation to substances subject to international environment regulations such as the 4 heavy metals, brominated flame retardant, and water quality analysis to overcome international trade barriers and secure product competitiveness.|
|Product Sector||The Institute is developing systems for discovering items needing quality improvement, studying ways of minimizing defects, and continuously monitoring quality problems centered on polymer products to meet customers’ needs, which are becoming increasingly differentiated.|
|Catalyst Sector||The institute has contributed considerably to improving PE’s physical properties and reducing the basic unit of PE by developing the catalysts used for the HDPE process. It is also aiding in the stable operation of the HDPE plant through accurate, experience-based estimation of LOTTE CHEMICAL’s HDPE catalyst production along with ongoing research on catalysts and carriers that can be applied to PP production.|
|Process Sector||Located within the plant, the Institute is increasing efficiency, reducing energy, and ensuring stable operation through process improvements resulting from the active utilization of process optimization and process simulation techniques. It is also striving to introduce and develop new technologies that will enhance process competitiveness.|
|Adhesive resin (MPO) plant||This plant produces high value-added adhesive resin (MPO) constructed by LOTTE CHEMICAL’s technology and is in charge of production-related business.|
