China: Petrochemicals KBR Awarded License and Catalyst Contracts for New Olefins Production Plant
Lihuayi Lijin Refining & Chemical Co. has plans to make use of KBR’s proprietary Catalytic Olefins Technology (K-COT) and Selective Cracking Optimum Recovery (Score) Technology for its new olefins plant in China.
Texas/USA – KBR has recently announced that it has been awarded contracts for a technology license, basic engineering design services and proprietary catalyst supply by Lihuayi Lijin Refining & Chemical Co. (Lihuayi), for a new olefins production unit in Dongying, China. The unit will use KBR's proprietary Catalytic Olefins Technology (K-COT) and Selective Cracking Optimum Recovery (Score) Technology.
KBR K-COT is a commercially proven and flexible technology for converting low-value olefinic, paraffinic or mixed streams into high value propylene and ethylene. In combination with KBR's state-of-the-art Score technology, it helps users to maximise feed and product flexibility, and thus enables Lihuayi to increase overall profitability as they further integrate their refinery towards petrochemicals.
Lihuayi has previously successfully implemented KBR's phenol technology at its site in Dongying.
