Uhde wins several contracts for aromatics plants

Uhde GmbH (Dortmund, Germany; www.uhde.biz) has been awarded a contract by Risun Chemical Co. of China to build an aromatics plant at Tangshan (Hebei Province), some 150 km east of Beijing. The new plant will produce top-quality benzene, toluene and xylene valuable aromatic fractions from coke-oven light oil, mainly for the Chinese market. High-purity aromatics are processed by the chemical industry into essential intermediate products used, for example, in the production of plastics. The plant, which is designed for a throughput capacity of 200,000 metric tons (m.t.) of coke-oven light oil per year, is due to come on stream in 2010 and joins a major high-purity aromatics plant being built by Xingtai Risun Coal & Chemical Co., a subsidiary of the Risun Group, at Xingtai, 450 km from Tangshan, using Uhde’s process. This second plant will start up around mid-2009 and together the two plants will mean that the Risun Group will gain a production capacity of 260,000 m.t./yr of high-purity aromatics. Another two contracts received by Uhde in China have come from Chinese coke producers. One is for the construction of a high-purity aromatics plant at a coke plant site in Qujing (Yunnan Province) and the other will be built at a coke…
