HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 31, 2006--Univation Technologies has reached
an agreement with Chemopetrol to increase plant capacity by 40 kilo-tonnes-per-year (kta) at its Polyethylene II UNIPOL® PE gas-phase process line located in Litvinov in the Czech Republic. Chemopetrol has been using UNIPOL PE technology for the production of HDPE since startup of its Polyethylene I line in 1976; its latest reactor line started up in 2002 with a design capacity of 200 kta.
