UOP LLC (Des Plaines, Ill.; www.uop.com), a Honeywell company, has opened a manufacturing and operations center in Penang, Malaysia, that will produce natural gas membrane elements to support the growing natural gas market. UOP’s Separex membrane systems remove impurities from natural gas streams. Removing impurities is necessary before the gas can be used as fuel, as a source for petrochemicals or distributed by pipeline. “The new manufacturing and operations center in Malaysia will strengthen UOP’s position to meet demand as natural gas becomes a larger part of the world’s energy equation,” says Rajeev Gautam, president and CEO of UOP.”This facility will expand our membrane manufacturing capabilities and increase our presence in the region.” Natural gas is the world’s fastest-growing fossil fuel, with consumption expected to reach 160 trillion cubic feet by 2035. Nearly 35% of the world’s demand growth for natural gas during that time will come from Asia, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Separex membrane systems are delivered as modular, skid-mounted units. Depending on the application, these systems require lower capital and operating costs, and consume…
