Zhenhua Petrochemical selects Oleflexâ„˘ technology from Honeywell UOP
Honeywell today announced Zhenhua Petrochemical Co. Ltd will use Honeywell UOPâ€™s C3 Oleflexâ„˘ technology for propane dehydrogenation to process 1 million metric tons per year of polymer-grade propylene for a proposed plant in Dongying City, Shandong Province, China.
Honeywell UOP, a leading technology provider for the oil and gas industry, will provide services, equipment, catalysts and adsorbents for the Zhenhua plant. The project, which will be conducted in two phases, marks the 42nd and 43rd awards for C3 Oleflex technology in China, which has seen strong growth as demand continues to rise for propylene, the primary component in many plastic resins, films and fibers.
Since 2011, 68 of the last 91 dehydrogenation projects globally have been based on UOP technology, including many in China. Global production capacity of propylene from Oleflex technology currently stands at approximately 7.9 million metric tons per year.
â€śCustomers such as Zhenhua Petrochemical trust us to deliver catalytic dehydrogenation technology to feed downstream polymer-grade propylene production and meet the ongoing demand for propane derivatives in China,â€ť said Bryan Glover, vice president and general manager, UOP Process Technologies. â€śWith this project, we will have licensed capacity to generate more than 15 million metric tons per year of polymer-grade propylene in China.â€ť
UOPâ€™s C3 Oleflex technology <https://youtu.be/Q8rJPtV4sS0> uses catalytic dehydrogenation to convert propane to propylene and is designed to have a lower cash cost of production and higher return on investment compared to competing dehydrogenation technologies. The Oleflex technologyâ€™s <https://youtu.be/X273ZragkBo> low-energy consumption, low-emissions and fully recyclable, platinum-alumina-based catalyst system also helps minimize impact on the environment. The independent reactor and regeneration design helps maximize operating flexibility and onstream reliability.
