UOP to provide hydrogen purification technology to Sinochem

DES PLAINES, US: UOP LLC, a Honeywell company, has been selected by Sinochem to provide technology to purify hydrogen at a new refinery in China. Sinochem Quanzhou Petrochemical Ltd will use two Honeywell UOP polybed pressure swing adsorption (PSA) systems to produce high-purity hydrogen at its new refinery. The hydrogen will be used for the production of clean transportation fuels, including diesel, gasoline and jet fuel, in the new 12 million tonne per year refinery.

Two polybed PSA systems will be used to process hydrogen from different streams throughout the facility. The system processing feed from a steam reformer will produce 140,000 Nm3/h (normal cubic metre per hour) of hydrogen, and the system processing refinery off-gas will produce 110,000 Nm3/h of hydrogen. The facility, located in Quanzhou city, Fujian Province, China, is expected to start in 2013.

“Reliable technology that maximizes hydrogen recovery helps optimize hydrogen efficiency and improve return on investment. Hydrogen impacts a facility’s profitability in many ways, including product quality, yield and catalyst life, and we look forward to helping Sinochem maximize its return on investment,” said Rebecca Liebert, Vice President and General Manager, Gas Processing and Hydrogen, UOP.
