Polymers | Our Business

JGSPC is the largest manufacturer of polyolefins in the Philippines. It is the first and only integrated PE and PP resin manufacturer in the country. We produce HDPE, LLDPE, PP-H and PP-R resins marketed under the EVALENE® brand using the world-renowned UNIPOL™ technology. JGSPC is a proud ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 certified company.

Process Overview | Technology

JGSPC’s polyolefins manufacturing processes are based on UNIPOL™ PE Process and UNIPOL™ PP Process Technology, known for its safety, environment-friendliness, simplicity, operational stability, cost-effectiveness and versatility. UNIPOL™’s relatively low pressures and low temperatures eliminate over-pressurization and runaway reactions, making it one of the safest PE and PP polymerization technologies available today. This gas phase process is also the cleanest in its class due to the absence of liquid and solid effluents emitted to the environment.

Today, The Dow Chemical Company’s fully owned Univation Technologies is the licensor for UNIPOL™ PE Process, while W.R. Grace & Co. is the licensor for UNIPOL™ PP Process Technology. The licensing agreements with these companies are characterized by continuous liaison, extensive documentation, complete training and technical assistance, which ensure the continuous improvement of the Plant and our personnel.
