Appalachian Resins is a start up company that is developing an integrated ethylene and polyethylene production facility. The facility's raw material will will be ethane obtained from Marcellus Shale Gas. The plant will be located in West Virginia.
The proposed facility will produce 508 million pounds per year of ethylene and 500 million pounds per year of polyethylene. This less than "world scale" production facility is sized to accommodate the needs of an identified local market.
Appalachian Resins' proposed production facility will enhance supply chain logistics and stabilize regional polyethylene price swings.
