UOP LLC Oleflex process technology selected  by Chinese firm for isobutylene production

DES PLAINES, US: UOP LLC, announced that its Oleflex process technology has been selected to produce key ingredients to help meet the growing demand for fuel and petrochemicals in China. Shandong Shouguang Luqing Petrochemical Co Ltd will use Honeywell’s UOP C4 Oleflex process technology to produce isobutylene, a key ingredient for making high-octane fuel and synthetic rubber.

The new unit, which is expected to start up in 2016, will produce approximately 170,000 metric tonne annually of isobutylene at its facility in Shandong Province, China. UOP will provide the engineering design, technology licensing, catalysts, adsorbents, equipment, staff training and technical service for the project.

“China needs to produce more isobutylene to support its rapidly increasing consumption needs, so we are pleased to announce another C4 Oleflex license to help meet this need. Oleflex technology is proven to have the smallest environmental footprint, the lowest cash cost of production, and the highest return on investment compared with competing technologies, and we look forward to continuing to offer this value in China and other parts of the world,” said Pete Piotrowski, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Process Technology and Equipment business unit, UOP.
