Shenghong Petrochemical Group Co. Ltd. has let a contract to a division of E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Co. to provide alkylation technology at its integrated complex in Lianyungang City in China’s province of Jiangsu.

DuPont Clean Technologies will deliver its proprietary STRATCO alkylation technology license, engineering, and proprietary equipment for Shenghong’s project to design and build a new alkylation unit as part of its grassroots 320,000-b/sd petrochemical and refining complex, the service provider said.

The STRATCO alkylation unit will be designed to produce 10,987 b/sd of alkylate product, enabling the complex to generate low-sulfur, high-octane, low-RVP alkylate—with zero olefins—that meets the criteria of upcoming China VI standards which will take effect before start-up of Shenghong’s complex in 2021, according to DuPont.

A value of the contract was not disclosed.
