Honeywell UOP to provide on-purpose propylene technology for Jiangsu Sailboat

By Mary Page Bailey |

Honeywell (Charlotte, N.C.; www.honeywell.com) announced that Jiangsu Sailboat Petrochemical Co., Ltd. will use Honeywell UOP’s C3 Oleflex technology to produce 700,000 metric tons per year (m.t./yr) of polymer-grade propylene at its facility in Lianyungang City in China’s Jiangsu Province. Jiangsu Sailboat will expand its existing facility, which uses Honeywell UOP’s methanol-to-olefins (MTO) process to produce ethylene and propylene. The facility’s additional output of propylene will further help China meet its demand for plastics used to make a wide range of consumer goods. Honeywell UOP’s C3 Oleflex technology uses catalytic dehydrogenation to convert propane to propylene.

Honeywell UOP will provide licensing and a process design package, equipment, on-site operator training, technical services, and catalysts and adsorbents for the project.

“As demand for propylene derivatives for consumer products in China continues to rise, UOP’s Oleflex technology provides greater energy and cost efficiency than other propane dehydrogenation technologies,” said Bryan Glover, vice president and general manager of Honeywell UOP’s Process Technology and Equipment business. “Customers such as Jiangsu Sailboat also find the technology to be environmentally preferable and provide a higher return on investment.”
