Chandra Asri Petrochemical (CAP) is the largest vertically integrated petrochemical company in Indonesia with facilities located in Ciwandan, Cilegon and Puloampel, Serang in Banten Province. CAP is Indonesia's premier petrochemical plant incorporating world-class, state-of-the-art technology and supporting facilities. At the heart of CAP lies the Lummus Naphtha Cracker producing high quality Ethylene, Propylene, Mixed C4, and Pyrolysis Gasoline (Py-Gas) for the Indonesian as well as regional export markets.
Besides the Naphtha Cracker plant, CAP has integrated Polyethylene and Polypropylene production facilities incorporating two world-class technologies. Four Unipol reactors are designed by Union Carbide: one reactor is capable of producing both Linear Low and High Density Polyethylene resins; the other three reactors are capable of producing a variety of Polypropylene resins. The fifth reactor uses Showa Denko KK of Japan's revolutionary Bimodal High Density Polyethylene technology. These two world-class technologies combine to produce a range of Polyethylene resin grades to meet the majority of Polyethylene demand in Indonesia.
To ensure continuous production, CAP has on-site power generation with capacity in excess of normal production requirements. In addition, CAP has connection to PLN as a back-up power source. The site also has desalination plant and water treatment facilities to produce feed water and highly purified water for use in the cooling system, tank farm, and jetty.
PT Chandra Asri Petrochemical Tbk fully owns 2 subsidiaries: PT Styrindo Mono Indonesia (SMI) and PT Petrokimia Butadiene Indonesia (PBI).
Styrindo Mono Indonesia (SMI) is the only Styrene Monomer producer in Indonesia serving both domestic downstream industries and regional export markets. The plant is located in Puloampel, Serang and is about 40KM from the Naphtha Cracker plant. The plant produces Styrene Monomer with a capacity of 340,000MT per year. Two units of Ethyl Benzene plants are designed under license from Mobil/Badger and Lummus technologies. These two Ethyl Benzene units are integrated with two units of Styrene Monomer plants engineered under Lummus/UOP technology.
Petrokimia Butadiene Indonesia (PBI) is the first Butadiene plant in Indonesia that produces Butadiene to fulfill regional market needs. The plant produces Butadiene with a capacity of 100,000MT per year. The raw material for the Butadiene plant is Mixed C4 which is a by-product of the Naphtha Cracker plant. Butadiene is a raw material used in the production of synthetic rubber which is a key raw material for the production of tires.
