Honeywell’s UOP licenses technology for propylene production in China


DES PLAINES, US: UOP LLC, a Honeywell company, has been selected by Zhejiang Julong Petrochemical Co Ltd (ZJLPC), to provide key technology for a new unit to produce propylene at its facility in Pinghu City, Zhejiang Province, China. The unit is expected to start up in 2013 and to produce 450,000 metric tons of propylene per year.

Honeywell’s UOP will provide engineering design, technology licensing, catalysts, adsorbents, equipment, staff training and technical service for the project.

China’s propylene consumption accounts for more than 15 per cent of worldwide demand and is growing at about 5 to 6 per cent per year.

“This project is a significant milestone for UOP because it is the first propane dehydrogenation unit we have licensed in China. We are pleased to provide the technology that will help meet the world’s growing propylene demand,” said Pete Piotrowski, Senior VP, Process Technology and Equipment Business unit, UOP.

“We look forward to working with UOP to adopt this technology at the Zhejiang Julong Petrochemical plant, which will add propylene to our product portfolio,” said Bichao Lv, GM for ZJLPC.

The new propane dehydrogenation unit at the facility will use UOP’s C3 Oleflex technology to convert propane to propylene. Compared to competing PDH processes, Oleflex technology provides the lowest cash cost of production and the highest return on investment.
