Honeywell to provide largest Oleflex unit in Europe for Borealis

Honeywell announced today that Borealis AG selected Honeywell UOP’s process technology for a proposed plant in Kallo, Belgium, that converts propane into propylene, a primary ingredient for making plastics.

Borealis proposes to use Honeywell UOP’s C3 Oleflex technology to produce a targeted 740,000 metric tons per year of polymer-grade propylene. When completed, it will be UOP’s third C3 Oleflex unit, and the largest in Europe.

“Demand for propylene in Europe continues to rise at the same time the supply from refineries and steam crackers is beginning to slow down,” said Mike Millard, vice president and general manager of Honeywell UOP’s Process Technology and Equipment business. “Oleflex technology is an on-purpose, reliable route to fill propylene supply gaps and support derivative production in Europe.”

In addition to technology licensing, Honeywell is providing the basic engineering design as well as services, equipment, catalysts and adsorbents for the plant.
