Shan­dong to use Honey­well’s propane de­hy­dro­gena­tion tech­nol­ogy

Chemical Industry Digest - - News & Views -

Honey­well has re­cently an­nounced that Shan­dong Won­full Petro­chem­i­cal will use Honey­well UOP’s C3 Ole­flex propane de­hy­dro­gena­tion tech­nol­ogy to pro­duce 250,000 met­ric tonnes per year of poly­mer-grade propy­lene at its fa­cil­ity in the Huan­tai Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Zone in China’s Shan­dong Prov­ince. Shan­dong Won­full Petro­chem­i­cal Group man­u­fac­tures and dis­trib­utes gaso­line, diesel, liq­ue­fied gas, petroleum coke, sul­fur, propy­lene, and other petro­chem­i­cals.

Honey­well will pro­vide li­cens­ing, the process de­sign pack­age, pro­pri­etary and non-pro­pri­etary equip­ment, on-site op­er­a­tor train­ing, tech­ni­cal ser­vices for startup and con­tin­u­ing op­er­a­tion, and cat­a­lysts and ad­sor­bents for the project.

Honey­well UOP’s C3 Ole­flex tech­nol­ogy uses cat­alytic de­hy­dro­gena­tion to con­vert propane to propy­lene and is de­signed to have a lower cash cost of pro­duc­tion and higher re­turn on in­vest­ment among com­pet­ing tech­nolo­gies. Its low en­ergy con­sump­tion, low emis­sions and fully re­cy­clable, plat­inum-alu­mina-based cat­a­lyst sys­tem min­i­mizes its im­pact on the en­vi­ron­ment. The in­de­pen­dent re­ac­tion and re­gen­er­a­tion sec­tions en­able steady-state op­er­a­tions, im­proved op­er­at­ing flex­i­bil­ity, and a high on-stream fac­tor and re­li­a­bil­ity.
