UOP to provide technology for on-purpose propylene plant in China

By Mary Page Bailey |

Honeywell announced today that Shandong Binhua New Material Co., Ltd. will use Honeywell UOP’s (Des Plaines, Ill.; www.uop.com) C3 Oleflex technology to produce 600,000 metric tons per year (m.t./yr) of polymer-grade propylene for a proposed plant in China.

Honeywell UOP will provide services, equipment, catalysts and adsorbents for the Shandong plant. The project marks the 25th award for C3 Oleflex technology in China, which has seen exponential growth and demand for propylene, a key plastics ingredient.

 “The increasing consumption of plastics globally has generated substantial demand for propylene,” said Bryan Glover, vice president and general manager, Honeywell UOP’s Petrochemicals and Refining Technologies. “Our Oleflex technology will help Shandong Binhua, a regional leader in propylene oxide production, meet the demand for propylene derivatives in China by creating a consistent supply of on-purpose propylene.”

Honeywell UOP’s C3 Oleflex technology uses catalytic dehydrogenation to convert propane to propylene. Oleflex’s independent reactor and regeneration design helps maximize operating flexibility and onstream reliability.

Shandong Binhua New Material Co., Ltd. is a subsidiary of Befar Group Co., Ltd. Located in Binzhou in Shandong Province, Befar is one of China’s most influential oil additive suppliers.
