HOUSTON, US: McDermott International Inc announced the recent successful startup of the world's largest catalytic dehydrogenation plant, which is located at Hengli Petrochemical (Dalian) Refinery Co Ltd's site in Liaoning Province, China, and uses McDermott's Lummus Catofin technology.

This single-train dehydrogenation unit uses Catofin catalyst and Heat Generating Material (HGM) from Lummus Technology's catalyst partner, Clariant, to process 500 KTA of propane and 800 KTA of isobutene for the production of propylene and isobutylene. In addition to the technology license, McDermott also provided the process design package, training, and technical support for this plant.

This technology offers lower capital and operational costs for our customers, combined with unmatched reliability and optimization," said Leon de Bruyn, Senior Vice President of McDermott's Lummus Technology business.
