HC Petrochem shortlists UOP for expansion of Daesan petrochemicals complex

October 01/2010

(plastemart) -- HC Petrochem Co., Ltd., a joint venture between Japan's Cosmo Oil and South Korea's Hyundai Oilbank, will use the UOP Parex process and the UOP Isomar process to help triple production of high-purity para-xylene to support growing, long-term demand for petrochemicals worldwide. Paraxylene is a key ingredient in the production of purified terephthalic acid (PTA), which is used to make polyester for fabric and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) chips for carbonated soft drink and water bottles.

 

Basic engineering design of the plant has begun and start-up is projected for the second half of 2013. HC Petrochem Co., Ltd. plans to expand production of paraxylene from 380,000 tpa to 1,180,000 tpa. The new Parex and Isomar process units will use mixed xylene as feedstock supplementing the existing UOP CCR Platforming, Sulfolane, Tatoray, Isomar and Parex process units at the plant to expand the production. UOP is the world's leading licensor of process technology for the production of aromatics and has licensed more than 725 individual process units for the production of aromatics.
