The Honeywell UOP C3 and C4 Oleflex processes have been selected to produce
propylene and isobutylene at a new China project from Shandong Chambroad
The plant will be the first in China, and only the second in the world, to
combine both processes, which are used to produce propylene and isobutylene,
Propylene is a building block material used in the production of films and
packaging, while isobutylene is a key ingredient for fuels and synthetic
The new units, expected to start up in 2014, will produce 133,000 tpy of
propylene and 87,000 tpy of isobutylene at its facility in Binzhou City,
