Royal Dutch Shell has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with CNOOC to build a chemical plant in Huizhou, in south China, Kallanish Energy reports.
The polycarbonate plant, Shell’s first commercial-scale facility as such, is planned to have a production capacity of 260,000 tonnes per annum, Shell said Friday. Polycarbonate is a type of polymer, largely used to make vehicle headlights and LED spotlights.
The MoU follows an agreement by the parties in October 2018, aiming to build more production equipment at their jointly-owned petchem complex in Huizhou.
