Honeywell gets Shandong Yulong contract for integrated Chinese petchem project

February 20/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Honeywell announced that Shandong Yulong Petrochemical Co. has selected Honeywell UOP?s advanced platforming and aromatics technologies for its 20,000-t/y integrated refining and petrochemical complex in Longkou, Shandong Province, China, according to Apic-online.

The complex will include a UOP naphtha Unionfining unit and CCR Platforming technology to convert naphtha into high-octane gasoline and aromatics.  It will also include a UOP Olefin Removal Process, UOP Sulfolane technology for aromatics extraction, Isomar isomerization technology and Tatoray technology for toluene disproportionation.

Once complete, the complex will produce 3-million t/y of mixed aromatics. Value of the contract and a schedule for the project were not given.

UOP will provide a range of technology licenses, engineering design, key equipment and state-of-the-art catalysts and adsorbents, operator training, and technical services for start-up and continuing operations.

The complex will also include two mixed feed ethylene crackers, two polypropylene (PP) lines, and ethylbenzene and styrene monomer plants.

As MRC reported earlier, in November, 2020, Honeywell announced Zhenhua Petrochemical Co. Ltd will use Honeywell UOPs C3 Oleflex technology for propane dehydrogenation to process 1 million metric tons per year of polymer-grade propylene for a proposed plant in Dongying City, Shandong Province, China.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 2,220,640 tonnes in 2020, up by 2% year on year. Only shipments of low density polyethylene (LDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) increased. At the same time, polypropylene (PP) shipments to the Russian market reached 1 240,000 tonnes in 2020 (calculated using the formula: production, minus exports, plus imports, excluding producers' inventories as of 1 January, 2020). Supply of exclusively PP random copolymer increased.
