Production Process:

  • Production of Polyethylene (PE) via Polymerisation

Polyethylene is produced from ethylene through its polymerisation. As ethylene is a stable compound, it polymerises only upon its contact with a catalyst. This conversion is highly exothermic and finally produces Polyethylene.
