Bad­ger of­fers tech­nolo­gies for one of the largest ethyl­ben­zene / styrene monomer plants

Chemical Industry Digest - - News & Views -


Li­cens­ing has re­cently an­nounced that Hengli Petro­chem­i­cal (Dalian) Chem­i­cal Co. (Hengli) has se­lected Bad­ger’s pro­pri­etary tech­nolo­gies for a 720 KTA grass­roots ethyl­ben­zene / styrene monomer (EB/SM) plant be­ing built in Changx­ing Is­land Eco­nomic Zone, Liaon­ing Prov­ince, Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of China. The con­tract in­cludes tech­nol­ogy li­cense, process de­sign and startup ser­vices.

Styrene monomer, with a world­wide ca­pac­ity of over 30 mil­lion met­ric tpa, is a pre­cur­sor to the pro­duc­tion of a va­ri­ety of poly­mer deriva­tives, in­clud­ing poly­styrene (PS), acry­loni­trile bu­ta­di­ene styrene (ABS), and styrene bu­ta­di­ene rub­ber (SBR). Bad­ger’s EB Max and styrene tech­nolo­gies have been li­censed more than 30 and 50 times, re­spec­tively, for plants around the world.

The new plant, one of the largest EB/SM plants in China, will uti­lize Bad­ger’s pro­pri­etary EB Max tech­nol­ogy in­te­grated with Bad­ger’s pro­pri­etary styrene tech­nol­ogy. Ba­sic en­gi­neer­ing de­sign work has been com­pleted and the plant is sched­uled for me­chan­i­cal com­ple­tion and startup in 2019.
