We compute the color singlet and color octet NRQCD long-distance matrix elements for inclusive production of P-wave quarkonia in the framework of pNRQCD. In this way, the color octet NRQCD long-distance matrix element can be determined without relying on measured cross section data, which has not been possible so far. We obtain inclusive cross sections of χcJ and χbJ at the LHC, which are in good agreement with data. In principle, the formalism developed in this work can be applied to all inclusive production processes of heavy quarkonia.
