Air Liquide and Shenhua Ningxia Coal to build second MTP plant


PARIS, FRANCE: Air Liquide said its engineering and construction division has signed a contract with Shenhua Ningxia Coal Industry Group in China to build a 500,000 tonne per year methanol-to-propylene (MTP) plant. The unit will be built in Ningdong, in the Chinese province of Ningxia. The engineering phase for the contract is to be completed within about eight months.

The contract comprises the basic engineering, license and supply of proprietary equipment, as well as services for procurement and technical advisory at the site. The large-scale MTP plant is based on technology licensed by Lurgi. SNCG, in close co-operation with the Lurgi team, played an important role in the commissioning and startup phases of the first MTP plant, thereby helping to prove the success of the Lurgi MTP technology at industrial scale.

Also SNCG and Air Liquide signed a co-operation agreement for continuous improvement and further development of Lurgi MTP technology. Further, SNCG will support marketing of the technology in China and Air Liquide Engineering & Construction division with its own start-up and operational expertise.
