GTC Technology to modernise benzene production complex in Russia

GTC Technology has signed an agreement with PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim to provide its GT-BTX® licensed technology for the modernization of a benzene production facility at NKNK’s EP-600 cracker plant in Nizhnekamsk, Republic of Tatarstan, Russia.

The new GT-BTX® unit will process a full range C6-C8 cut after the 1st stage pygas hydrotreating unit and will allow NKNK to lower the cash cost of producing high-purity benzene and also recover non-aromatics to be used as cracker feed. GTC will revamp the existing 2nd stage pygas hydrotreating unit to process 30% more feed, and design a new GT-BTX® unit with post-fractionation. Scope of supply includes the basic engineering package, technical services, proprietary catalyst, solvent and equipment. Start-up is planned for 2017.

“We are pleased to work with such a prestigious company as NKNK to provide effective solutions for recovering aromatics from pyrolysis gasoline and modernizing olefins production complexes,” said Joseph C. Gentry, GTC Global Vice President – Engineering & Technology. Ilya L. Aranovich, GTC Licensing Manager, added, “We are excited to extend our track record of providing leading-edge solutions to improve the economics of naphtha-based crackers for clients in the CIS region and around the world.”

GTC Technology offers a variety of approaches for managing aromatics and other high value added molecules in petrochemical complexes. These technologies include the GT-BTX® Extractive Distillation process for recovery of aromatics; GT-Styrene® Extractive Distillation process for recovery of styrene monomer, GT-C5SM Extractive Distillation process for recovery of isoprene, piperylene and DCPD, GT-TolAlkSM/GT-TransAlkSM– alkylation/transalkyation of Toluene to produce mixed xylenes; and others.

PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim (NKNK), one of the largest petrochemical companies in Europe, is the leader in the production of synthetic rubbers and plastics in the Russian Federation. NKNK is part of the TAIF Group. The main production facilities are located in the city of Nizhnekamsk, Republic of Tatarstan. The company was founded in 1967.
