China: Plant Engineering Chevron Lummus Global Wins Technology and Design Contract in China
Chevron Lummus Global has been awarded the contract by Weifang Hongrun Petrochemical Technology Co. to design its 500 KTA white oil hydroprocessing unit and 200 KTA food grade white oil unit in Shandong, China.
California/USA – Chevron Lummus Global (CLG) has announced that it has been awarded a contract by Weifang Hongrun Petrochemical Technology Co. for the license and design of its 500 KTA white oil hydroprocessing unit and 200 KTA food grade white oil unit. Both the units are located in Shandong, China.
CLG will design the units using its proprietary Isodewaxing and Isofinishing technologies. The scope of work also includes the supply of catalysts and proprietary Isomix-e internals.
“CLG is excited to be working with Weifang on this grassroots project, which, when complete, will be the largest food grade white oil unit in the world,” said Ujjal Mukherjee, CLG’s Managing Director. “This project will enable Weifang to produce the most premier white oil in the marketplace.”
CLG’s Isodewaxing technology catalytically isomerizes the molecular structure of wax into isoparafins, offering lower pour points and higher product yields than other processes. The Isofinishing technology uses noble-metal catalysts to produce higher-quality base oils at lower temperatures than conventional methods.
