Polyethylene Product Development
NOVA Chemicals is committed to develop polyethylene products to meet the needs of our customers. At NOVA Chemicals, we foster development of both step-change and breakthrough new products. A portfolio of product development projects, ranging from products ready for commercial introduction through to projects in the early stage of concept development, is carefully managed to ensure we meet our commitments for new product innovations to our customers in a timely and high quality manner.
Through a collaborative process, we work to deeply understand market and customer requirements where our product development efforts can be most successful. We translate these requirements using material science principles, modeling, and expertise in polymer architecture, which guides the catalyst and process development to achieve the desired product performance. Polyethylene catalyst development, process development, process optimization, and polymer modification via additives all flow into the product development process at NOVA Chemicals.
