Petrochemical group to upgrade heavy fuel oil with UOP technologies

November 08/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Honeywell announced at China International Import Expo (CIIE) 2019 that Dayuewan (Zhuhai) Petrochemical Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of China Grain Petrochemical Group, will use a range of technologies from Honeywell UOP to upgrade heavy fuel oil into higher value petrochemical products at its complex in the Gaolan Port Economic Zone in Guangdong Province, said Hydrocarbonprocessing.

When the project is completed, Dayuewan will be converting nearly all of its vacuum residue to light oil products, representing one of the highest conversion rates in the world. Meanwhile, this project will adopt a range of advanced process technologies to recycle hydrogen and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) at among the highest rates in the world.

Honeywell UOP is providing basic engineering and technology licensing, as well as technical and start-up services for the project, which includes a 1.4 million tons-per-year Uniflex MC slurry hydrocracking unit to upgrade bottom-of-the-barrel fuel oil into light oil products. This will be fed to a Unicracking unit to produce naphtha for a CCR Platforming unit. The project also includes three Polybed Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) units to supply high-quality hydrogen for the Uniflex process. The PSA units are designed to generate 320,000 cubic meters of hydrogen per hour.

"This project will enable Dayuewan to substantially modernize its operations by transformation and upgrading, said Henry Liu, vice president and general manager of Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies Asia Pacific, and vice president and general manager of Honeywell UOP in China. This combination of technologies are designed as an integrated operating block to maximize product yields, but with lower capital and operating expense than standard configurations."

The Uniflex MC technology enables a plant to convert more than 97% of its vacuum residue into lighter, more valuable petrochemical products. The process uses MicroCat catalyst, produced on site, to stabilize thermally cracked hydrocarbons into stable light oil products. It produces fuels and feedstocks for downstream petrochemicals manufacturing, both of which can improve plants profit margins.

The Honeywell UOP PSA technology efficiently recovers and purifies hydrogen perform catalytic processes that transform crude oil into light oil products and other petrochemical products. Honeywell UOP has installed more than 1,100 Polybed PSA units in more than 70 countries.

Since its establishment in December 2016, Dayuewan has been committed to the concept of green, energy-saving and high-efficiency technologies. It has established a modern petrochemical complex with advanced technologies, equipment and recyclable resources and which integrates production, processing, storage, and terminals.

As MRC informed earlier, Fujian Meide Petrochemical Co. Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Packing Group Company Ltd, will utilize the Honeywell Process Reliability Advisor for prescriptive monitoring of on-purpose propylene at its new UOP C3 Oleflex unit in Fuzhou, Fujian Province, China. The plant is designed to convert propane into 660,000 t/y of propylene.  Status of the facility could not be confirmed.

Propylene is a feedstock for the production of PP.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, the PP consumption in the Russian market was 909,260 tonnes in January-August 2019, up by 10% year on year. Shipments of PP block copolymer and homopolymer PP increased.

Honeywell is a global diversified technology and manufacturing company with a wide range of aerospace products and services, control, sensing and security technologies for buildings, homes and industry, turbochargers, automotive products, specialty chemicals, electronic and advanced materials, process technology for refining and petrochemicals and energy efficient products and solutions for homes, business and transportation.
