April 06/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Lummus Technology announced that its Novolen business has been awarded a PP contract by Jin Guo Tou (Jinzhou) Petrochemical Co., Ltd. at its petrochemical facility in Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province, China, said Hydrocarbonprocessing.

"We are grateful to Jin Guo Tou for selecting Novolen, which builds on the recent series of awards and strong track record of our PP technology," said Leon de Bruyn, Lummus Technology's President and Chief Executive Officer. "With Novolen, our clients can achieve optimized performance of their facilities and produce a flexible range of products for all PP applications while enjoying low capital and operating costs."

Lummus' scope includes the technology license for a 900 KTA polypropylene unit as well as basic design engineering, training and services, and catalyst supply. The unit consists of one line of 300 KTA and one line of 600 KTA, the largest single-line capacity that has been licensed in the market today.

Lummus Novolen Technology GmbH licenses polypropylene technology and provides related engineering and technical support/advisory services. Novolen also supplies NHP catalysts for the production of high-performance polypropylene grades and NOVOCENE metallocene catalyst for the production of special polypropylene grades.

As per MRC, Lummus Technology announced an award for its ethylbenzene technology from a customer in Jiangsu Province, China. Once complete, the unit will produce 508,000 tonnes/year of ethylbenzene via the EBOne technology.

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

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 241,030 tonnes in January 2021 versus 217,890 tonnes a year earlier. Only shipments of low density polyethylene (LDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) increased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market reached 141,870 tonnes in January 2021 versus 123,520 tonnes a year earlier. Supply of homopolymer PP and PP block copolymers increased.

Lummus Technology is a master licensor of proprietary technologies in refining, petrochemicals, gas processing and coal gasification sectors, as well as a supplier of proprietary catalysts, equipment and related engineering services. It has about 130 licensed technologies and more than 3,400 patents and trademarks.
