Ineos AG will use Lummus technology from McDermott for the propane dehydrogenation (PDH) unit it plans to build with a gas cracker in northwestern Europe (OGJ Online, July 3, 2018).

It signed a license agreement and an agreement with Clariant for long-term supply of catalyst for the PDH unit, which will be able to produce 750,000 tonnes/year of propylene to feed Ineos polypropylene plants and other propylene-derivative businesses.

Ineos expects to commission the PDH unit in 2023.

It said it will announce location of the €2.7-billion cracker-PDH complex “later in the year.”
