MOSCOW (MRC) -- Beijing' Lummus Technology's Novolen technology has been selected by Lihuayi Weiyuan for a new polypropylene (PP) plant to be built in Shandong Province, China, said Apic-online.
Lummus' scope includes the technology license for the PP unit, as well as basic engineering, training and services. A schedule for the project was not given.
'We are grateful for Lihuayi Weiyuan's selection of No-volen, and proud to support our customer across the full value stream from propane feedstock to high-value polypropylene product, said Lummus President and Chief Executive Leon de Bruyn.
'Our technology has proven to yield our customers sig-nificant CAPEX and OPEX advantages, coupled with the ability to produce a comprehensive range of high-performance polymers.'
Last year, Lihuayi Weiyuan also chose Lummus' Catofin technology for a new 600,000-t/y propane dehydrogenation unit in China.
We remind, Clariant’s Catalysts business has been awarded three new contracts by China’s Lihuayi Group for its upcoming petrochemicals production units. The agreements include three of Clariant’s high-performance catalysts for the production of ethylene, styrene, and propylene. From Clariant’s ethylene catalyst line, Lihuayi chose the OleMax 101 catalyst for its 1000 KTA olefins plant for high-value olefins recovery from cracked gas and off-gas streams. The OleMax 100 series is used to purify gas streams for acetylene, dienes, oxygen, nitrogen oxides, and heavy metals, in a single reactor, enabling highly cost-efficient olefins production.
