Shenghong Petrochemical selects DuPont for Alkylation Technology

July 24/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- DuPont Clean Technologies (DuPont) has been awarded contracts to supply Shenghong Petrochemical Group Co., Limited (Shenghong) with a STRATCO alkylation technology license, engineering, and proprietary equipment, reported Hydrocarbonprocessing.

Shenghong is undertaking a project to design and construct a new alkylation unit as part of its grassroots petrochemical and refining facility with crude oil capacity of 16 million mtpa (320,000 bpsd) located in Lianyungang City, Jiangsu Province, China. The STRATCO alkylation unit at the Shenghong Petrochemical and Refining facility will be designed to produce 440 kmta (10,987 bpsd) of alkylate product.

The STRATCO alkylation unit will enable the Shenghong Petrochemical and Refining facility to generate low-sulfur, high-octane, low-Rvp alkylate, with zero olefins, that meets the criteria of upcoming China VI standards which will take effect prior to the startup of the Shenghong facility in 2021.

"DuPont looks forward to working with Shenghong on this exciting, new opportunity, as the company sets out to build a world-leading petrochemical industry park," says Kevin Bockwinkel, Global Licensing Business Manager, STRATCO alkylation technology. "We were very pleased an alkylation unit had been included in the complex configuration as Shenghong is looking for the most efficient way to make high quality fuels in its cutting-edge crude-to-chemicals plant. DuPont has a rich history of providing technology that enables customers to produce high quality alkylate, with high octane value and zero olefins or aromatics, in an extremely reliable and energy efficient way. We look forward to continuing to develop the relationship between DuPont and Shenghong - one that will last the lifetime of the alkylation unit."

STRATCO alkylation technology is the established global leader in the industry with over 100 units licensed worldwide and more than 33,300 kmta (850,000 bpsd) of installed capacity. STRATCO alkylation technology is a sulfuric acid catalyzed process that converts low-value olefins into high-value alkylate, a key desirable component for clean fuel. With currently operating units dating back as far as 80 years, the STRATCO alkylation technology is a highly effective, reliable solution for producing clean-burning fuel with high octane, low Rvp, low sulfur and zero olefins.

We remind that, as MRC informed previously, rising demand for DuPonts Tyvek nonwoven materials has prompted DuPont Safety and Construction, a business unit of DowDuPont Inc., to invest more than USD400 million to expand capacity for the materials at its facility in Luxembourg. The expansion will include the addition of a new building and third operating line at the site. The new capacity will come on stream in 2021.
