Dayuewan selects Honeywell technology to upgrade heavy fuel oil into petrochemicals

December 02/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Honeywell UOP has been chosen by Dayuewan (Zhuhai) Petrochemical Co. to supply a range of technologies to upgrade heavy fuel oil into higher value petrochemical products at Dayuewan's complex in Gaolan Port Economic Zone, Guangdong Province, China, as per Apic-online.

Honeywell will provide basic engineering and technology licensing, as well as technical and start-up services for the project, which includes a 1.4-million-t/y Uniflex MC slurry hydrocracking unit to upgrade the heavy 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 cu m/hr of hydrogen.

"This project will enable Dayuewan to substantially modernize its operations by transformation and upgrad-ing," noted Henry Liu, vice president and general manager of Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies Asia Pacific.

"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."

As MRC reported earier, 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 polyprolypele (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, the estimated PP consumption in the Russian market in January-October 2019 totalled 1,066,520 tonnes, up by 7% year on year. Supply of block copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymer) and homopolymer of propylene (homopolymer PP) increased, demand for statistical copolymers (PP random copolymer) decreased.

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.
