China – Wanhua Chemical Group has plans to build a second ethylene cracker project at its Yantai site in China with local government officials. According to Chemical Week, the project is expected to comprise a 1.2-million metric tonnes/year (MMt/y) ethylene unit; pyrolysis gasoline hydrogenation; aromatics extraction; and production facilities for butadiene, high-density polyethylene (PE), low-density PE, PE plastomers and elastomers, polypropylene (PP), and other derivatives. Other details including the time line have not been disclosed. The second ethylene project will use naphtha and C4s as feedstock.

Specialist Book „Heat Transfer Technique“The comprehensive standard work „Heat Transfer Technique“ offers not only a detailed and well-founded presentation of the basics of heat transfer technique, but also shows the latest state of the art and the latest regulations in the use of organic fluids. Thematically, the book is rounded off with an overview of property data of organic heat transfer fluids as well as many use cases from practical experience.

Currently, Wanhua's first ethylene project in Yantai is under construction. Wanhua has mentioned in its annual report published in July that construction on the phase-one project will be complete in 2020. The first project comprises a 1 MMt/y ethylene unit as well as polyvinyl chloride and linear-low density PE. Wanhua is also constructing a propylene oxide/styrene monomer plant at Yantai, China.
