February 17/2017

MOSCOW (MRC) -- CB&I has announced it has been awarded a contract by Dongguan Grand Resource Science & Technology Co. Ltd. for the license and engineering design of a grassroots propane dehydrogenation unit to be built in Dongguan City, Guangdong Province, China, as per Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The unit will use CB&I's CATOFIN catalytic dehydrogenation technology and Clariant's CATOFIN catalyst to produce 600,000 mtpy of propylene. This unit has been optimized to reduce equipment piece-count and lower propane consumption.

"CB&I is pleased to have been selected by Dongguan Grand Resource to provide the CATOFIN technology license for this new petrochemical facility in China," said Philip K.

Under the deal, CB&I will license and provide engineering design for the proposed dehydrogenation unit. As well as CB&I's Catofin technology, the unit will use Clariant's Catofin catalyst to process 300,000t per annum of propane and 600,000t per year of isobutane feedstock for jointly produce propylene and isobutylene.
