Another propane dehydrogenation award for UOP in China  

By Gerald Ondrey |

UOP LLC (Des Plaines, Ill.; www.uop.com), a Honeywell company, has been selected by Zhejiang Shaoxing Sanjin Petrochemical Co. to provide key technology to produce propylene in China. The win marks the sixth time this year UOP’s technology has been selected by petrochemicals producers to produce propylene, which is used in the production of materials such as films and packaging. The new propane dehydrogenation unit will use UOP’s C3 Oleflex process technology to produce 450,000 metric tons annually of propylene. The unit is expected to start up in 2013 at Zhejiang’s facility in Shaoxing City, Zhejiang Province, China. In addition to technology licensing, Honeywell’s UOP will also provide engineering design, catalysts, adsorbents, equipment, staff training and technical service for the project. The Oleflex process uses catalytic dehydrogenation to convert propane to propylene. Since the technology was commercialized in 1990, UOP has commissioned nine C3 Oleflex units for on-purpose propylene production, with the 10th unit scheduled to start up in 2012 in Russia. Earlier this year, UOP announced four similar projects in China as well as one in Abu Dhabi. Zhejiang Shaoxing Sanjin Petrochemical Co. is a fully owned…
