THE WOODLANDS, US: Chicago Bridge & Iron Company (CBI) has been awarded a contract by Xuzhou HaiDing Chemical Technology Co Ltd for the license and engineering design of a grassroots propane dehydrogenation unit to be built in Pizhou, China.

The unit will use CB&I's Catofin catalytic dehydrogenation technology and Clariant's tailor-made, non-noble, Catofin catalyst to produce 600,000 metric tons per year of propylene. CB&I's Catofin technology continues to be the propane dehydrogenation technology of choice, which consistently exceeds customer expectations for overall performance.

"We look forward to furthering our technology footprint in China by licensing Catofin to Xuzhou HaiDing Chemical Technology's fast-track project," said Daniel McCarthy, CB&I's executive vice president of technology.

"Catofin has unmatched operational reliability and continually surpasses nameplate capacities. It's optimized operational conditions deliver the highest conversion and selectivity to the customer, resulting in both the lowest capital and operational expenditure for the project," added McCarthy.
