Lummus Technology lands contract in China  

By Gerald Ondrey |

CB&I (The Woodlands, Tex.; www.cbi.com) announced today that Lummus Technology has been awarded a contract by China Coal Shaanxi Yulin Energy & Chemical Co. Ltd. for the license and engineering design of two light olefins recovery units. The plants will be located in Yulin, Shaanxi Province, China. The start-up of the first unit is expected in 2013. The recovery units, which use breakthrough technology to recover olefins (ethylene and propylene) produced from methanol feed, are each expected to yield 300,000 metric tons per year (m.t./yr) of polymer grade ethylene, and 300,000 m.t./yr of polymer grade propylene. In addition, the Olefins Conversion Technology (OCT) from Lummus Technology was selected to upgrade the by-product produced by the light olefins recovery units into an additional 165,000 m.t./yr of polymer grade propylene. Propylene is a building block used to manufacture a variety of household goods, including plastics, paint and detergents. Ethylene is used to produce such products as plastics, fibers and rubber.   There is no pdf available for this short news item
