Munich/Germany — The project includes the license and engineering design of the unit, which is to be built in Pizhou, Jiangsu Province, China.

The Xuzhou Hai Ding plant is designed to produce 600 kilotons per year of propylene and will be based on Clariant’s Catofin catalytic dehydrogenation technology, which employs the company’s catalyst and Heat Generating Material (HGM).

Catofin dehydrogenation catalyst are used for the production of olefins, such as propylene or isobutylene, from light paraffin feedstocks. HGM is a patented metal-oxide material loaded with the catalyst that increases the selectivity and yield of these types of units. To maximize the yield of propane to propylene, the process operates at thermodynamically advantaged reactor pressure and temperature and utilizes a highly selective catalyst.
