Honeywell UOP process technology selected for propylene plant in Vietnam

By Mary Page Bailey |

Honeywell (Charlotte, N.C.; www.honeywell.com) announced that Phu My Plastics Production JSC will use Honeywell UOP’s C3 Oleflex technology to produce polymer-grade propylene at its facility in Vietnam. The plant will help meet growing domestic demand for plastics in Vietnam and other countries in Southeast Asia. This is the first award for Honeywell’s propane dehydrogenation technology in Vietnam.


Honeywell UOP will provide technology licensing for the Oleflex process, the process design package, proprietary and non-proprietary equipment, on-site operator training, technical services for startup and continuing operation, and proprietary catalysts and adsorbents.


Honeywell UOP’s C3 Oleflex technology uses catalytic dehydrogenation to convert propane to propylene.


“This Oleflex unit will use low-priced and widely available propane to make propylene, which can be made into polypropylene, one of the most important materials for making plastics,” said Bryan Glover, vice president and general manager of Honeywell UOP’s Process Technology and Equipment business. “This new capacity will enable Vietnam to meet its own rapidly growing domestic demand for plastics, supplanting propylene products that it currently imports.”


Phu My Plastics Production JSC is mainly engaged in the manufacture and sale of plastic packaging. The company’s leading products include laminated polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE) bags, flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBCs), as well as woven PP sheets, among others. These products are consumed in Vietnam, and exported to overseas markets, including Brazil, France, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand.
