Chinese petrochem firm picks UOP processes

Heilongjiang Anruijia Petrochemical Co. has selected technologies of UOP LLC for production of isobutylene and normal butane in Heilongjiang Province, China.

New units are to start up in 2014 to produce 180,000 tonnes/year of isobutylene and 150,000 tonnes/year of butane.

UOP’s proprietary Oleflex project uses catalytic dehydrogenation to convert isobutane to isobutylene. Its Butamer process uses high-activity, chloride-promoted catalysts in the presence of hydrogen to convert isobutane to normal butane.

In addition to technology licensing, UOP, part of Honeywell, will provide engineering design, catalysts, adsorbents, equipment, staff training, and technical service.

Heilongjiang Anruijia Petrochemical is a private company that focuses on LPG trading in China.
