Honeywell announced that Shandong Wonfull Petrochemical will use UOP’s C3 Oleflex propane dehydrogenation technology to produce 250,000 metric tons per year of polymer-grade propylene at its facility in the Huantai Economic Development Zone in China’s Shandong Province.

Des Plaines/USA — Honeywell will provide licensing, the process design package, proprietary and non-proprietary equipment, on-site operator training, technical services for startup and continuing operation, and catalysts and adsorbents for the project. This is the 34th award in China for Honeywell’s Oleflex technology.

The growth in propylene production in China is being driven by surging demand for polypropylene and other propylene derivatives that are used to make resins, fibers and plastics. The Oleflex process converts propane into propylene that meets the purity requirements for these products.

This technology uses catalytic dehydrogenation to convert propane to propylene and is designed to have a lower cash cost of production and higher return on investment among competing technologies. Its low energy consumption, low emissions and fully recyclable, platinum-alumina-based catalyst system minimizes its impact on the environment. The independent reaction and regeneration sections enable steady-state operations, improved operating flexibility, and a high on-stream factor and reliability.

China: Isobutylene Production

First C4 Oleflex Unit in China from Honeywell

26/05/2016 - The independent integrated refiner Shandong Luqing Petrochemical accepted performance of China’s first standalone Honeywell UOP C4 Oleflex process unit, producing 170,000 metric tons per year of isobutylene. read...

Honeywell UOP also licenses C4 Oleflex technology, which converts butanes to butylenes, the primary ingredient for making high-octane fuel additives and synthetic rubber. Including this project, the Oleflex technology has been selected for 52 out of 64 propane and isobutane dehydrogenation projects globally since 2011.
