Clariant and Lummus win PDH technology contract from GAIL

By Mary Page Bailey |

Lummus Technology (Houston), and its catalysts partner, Clariant Catalyts, announced another major contract award in India that will expand their global share of the PDH market. GAIL (India) Limited has selected Lummus Technology’s CATOFIN process and Clariant’s tailor-made catalysts for India’s first PDH plant. Its upcoming 500,000 metric tons per year (m.t./yr) propane dehydrogenation facility in Usar, Maharashtra, will be integrated with a downstream polypropylene (PP) unit. The $1.2-billion PDH-PP project is expected to start operations by 2024. 

“Getting the first PDH award in India is very exciting, considering the anticipated growth of the petrochemicals market here. This award displays the innovative strength of the partnership between Lummus and Clariant,” said Leon de Bruyn, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lummus Technology. “Lummus is grateful to GAIL for getting selected and is committed to providing best-in-class PDH technology that offers a reliable, optimized and low-carbon route to propylene.”

“We are extremely proud of the ever-increasing global demand for CATOFIN – and we couldn’t have achieved this without our long-time partner, Lummus Technology,” said Stefan Heuser, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Clariant Catalysts. “Thanks to our collaboration, we are able to offer GAIL (India) excellent performance and profitability by combining the best of PDH expertise with catalyst innovation.”
