Repsol: Plans to build an UHMWPE plant

Repsol has signed a technology license agreement that would allow the company to construct an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) plant. The plant would be located in Repsol's Industrial Complex in Puertollano (Spain) and would have an annual production capacity of at least 15 kt.

Signing this agreement enables Repsol to begin the project's Conceptual Engineering Phase aiming to reach the Final Investment Decision in 2022.


UHMWPE is a highly differentiated material with high toughness, superior to that of steel, high impact resistance, and a self-lubricating capacity. Numerous applications and multiple sectors use this type of polyethylene. The automotive industry uses it to manufacture battery separators for electric vehicles and in construction for the manufacturing of high hardness plates. It can be used for medical applications, prostheses and medical implants or filters for dialysis, or in aviation and other industrial sectors.
