MOSCOW (MRC) -- Sulzer Chemtech will provide a BioFlux technology package to support the creation of the Sabah Maju Jaya Renewable Energy Industrial Complex (SMJREIC) in Malaysia, according to Hydrocarbonprocessing.
This new facility will produce sustainable fuels with limited GHG emissions by using locally-sourced, renewable feedstock.
By leveraging Sulzer Chemtech’s technology, the new plant located at Sapangar Bay, Kota Kinabalu, will have a production capacity of 250,000 tpy.
Vandelay Ventures has preselected Sulzer Chemtech (GTC Technology) to be the preferred process technology provider for the main processes at the 10,000 m2 processing complex. This will utilize plant-based oils for the production of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), renewable diesel (HVO) and renewable naphtha as a byproduct.
More precisely, the SMJREIC’s infrastructure will rely on the proprietary BioFlux technology offered by Sulzer Chemtech in cooperation with Duke Technologies for the conversion of various pretreated feedstocks to either HVO or SAF while generating lower emissions than conventional processes.
The unit will complement the centralized edible oil bulking terminal, which will have a capacity of 30,000 tpy, and supply high-quality feed to the HVO/SAF plant, with capacity of 250,000 tpy. In addition, Sulzer Chemtech will provide engineering services as well as installation, commissioning and startup support.
As MRC reported before, earlier this year, Sulzer Chemtech finalized an agreement with Encina Development Group, LLC to provide technology to recover high purity circular aromatics from cracked oil products derived from Encina’s mixed-plastics-to-aromatics catalytic conversion platform. Encina’s 1000 tpd waste plastics recycling facility will be located in Northeast US, and is expected to be operational in 2024.
According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 2,487,450 tonnes in 2021, up by 13% year on year. Shipments of all grades of ethylene polymers increased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market totalled 1,494.280 tonnes, up by 21% year on year. Deliveries of homopolymer PP and PP block copolymers increased, whreas.shipments of PP random copolymers decreased significantly.
