Clean Tech­nolo­gies ( DuPont) signed con­tracts with Honey­well UOP to pro­vide STRATCO alky­la­tion and MECS Ad­vanced sul­fu­ric

® ® acid re­gen­er­a­tion (SAR) tech­nolo­gies for the Kuwait In­te­grated Petroleum In­dus­tries Com­pany (KIPIC). The 9,100 bpsd alky­la­tion unit and 70 mtpd Ad­vanced SAR unit were se­cured for the Petro­chem­i­cal Re­fin­ery In­te­gra­tion Al-Zour (PRIZe) pro­ject in Al-Zour, Kuwait.

The STRATCO Alky­la­tion Tech­nol­ogy com­bines

® propy­lene, butylenes, and/or amylenes, ei­ther in­di­vid­u­ally or as a mix­ture, with isobu­tane in the pres­ence of a strong sul­fu­ric acid cat­a­lyst to pro­duce high-oc­tane, branched chained hy­dro­car­bons for use in mo­tor fuel and avi­a­tion gaso­line.

PRIZe is the largest green­field re­fin­ery ever built and is cur­rently un­der con­struc­tion in south­ern Kuwait. This 615,000 bpsd mega re­fin­ery is part of Kuwait’s strat­egy to re­duce sul­fur emis­sions from ve­hi­cles and power plants. Startup is tar­geted for the sec­ond quar­ter of 2022.

The MECS Ad­vanced SAR tech­nol­ogy is a reli

® able, dry gas tech­nol­ogy that pro­duces the de­sired 99.2 wt per­cent sul­fu­ric acid strength for op­ti­mum alky­la­tion unit per­for­mance.
