China: Specialised Technology Mc Dermott Launches Largest Ever CD Alky Reactor in China
Located at Petro China's refinery in Jilin, China, the 350,000 metric tonne per annum plant is one of the four CD Alky projects awarded to Mc Dermott by Petro China. The project was completed in just 17 months post the initial design.
Texas/USA – Mc Dermott International has recently announced the successful commercialisation and startup of its single largest CD Alky reactor to date at Petro China's refinery in Jilin, China. The 350,000 metric tonne per annum (9,000 barrels per day) plant is one of four CD Alky projects awarded to the company by Petro China and had an unusually fast schedule from design to operation, with startup occurring just 17 months after initial design.
Lummus' CD Alky technology provides a safe, clean and economical route to low sulfur, high octane alkylate blendstock used to fuel smaller, lighter and high compression transportation engines. One of the key features of the CD Alky technology is its scalability. Competing processes would require multiple reactors to achieve the same capacity, adding complexity and plot space in comparison with CD Alky.
