UOP licenses technology for Yantai Wanhua Polyurethanes in China


DES PLAINES, US: UOP LLC, a Honeywell company, announced that it has been selected by Yantai Wanhua Polyurethanes Co Ltd to provide technology to produce key petrochemicals to meet growing demand in China.

Yantai Wanhua will use Honeywell’s UOP process technology, catalysts and adsorbents to produce propylene, a building block for films and packaging, and isobutane, a raw material used in the polyurethane production process, at its facility in Yantai, China. The new units are expected to start up in 2013.

“As the demand for widely used petrochemicals, such as propylene and polyurethane, rapidly increases around the world, Honeywell’s UOP is pleased to be at the forefront offering the process technology needed to meet that demand,” said Pete Piotrowski, Senior VP, Process Technology and Equipment, UOP.

The facility will use UOP C3 Oleflex process technology to produce 750,000 metric tonne of propylene from propane annually and the UOP Butamer process to produce 565,000 metric tonne of isobutane annually. Additionally, UOP will provide engineering design, equipment, staff training and technical service for the project.
