Shell to supply ethylene oxide catalyst to Chinese Jiangsu Dynamic Chemical

April 22/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Shell Catalysts & Technologies will supply ethylene oxide catalyst to Jiangsu Dynamic Chemical after demonstrating high selectivity, desired reliability and advantageous lifetime of its catalyst, according to Hydrocarbonprocessing.

This will help to maximize returns for the company which manufactures chemical new materials and fine chemicals. An additional key element of the agreement includes providing technical services utilizing Shells upstream and downstream expertise.

We are pleased that Jiangsu Dynamic Chemical is turning to Shell Catalyst & Technologies market-leading ethylene oxide catalysts as the key to maximize their returns, said Peace Chen, China Head of EO Catalysts Business with Shell Catalysts & Technologies. Our high-performance ethylene oxide catalysts offer both high selectivity and advantageous lifetimes, allowing customers to manage their units in their preferred way and to stay profitable.

Jiangsu Dynamic Chemical, located in Nanjing, Jiangsu province, is the leading company specialized in researching and manufacturing ethylene oxide derivatives and fine chemicals in China. The total ethylene oxide capacity of units one and two is 180 kilo tons per annum.

As MRC informed earlier, Royal Dutch Shell Plc restarted the small crude distillation unit (CDU) on 2 April at its 318,000-bpd joint-venture Deer Park, Texas, refinery. The 70,000-bpd DU-1 CDU was shut on Feb 14 by a pump seal failure. All other units were shut the following day by severe cold weather. DU-1 is the last unit shut in February to restart at the refinery.

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.

Royal Dutch Shell plc is an Anglo-Dutch multinational oil and gas company headquartered in The Hague, Netherlands and with its registered office in London, United Kingdom. It is the biggest company in the world in terms of revenue and one of the six oil and gas "supermajors". Shell is vertically integrated and is active in every area of the oil and gas industry, including exploration and production, refining, distribution and marketing, petrochemicals, power generation and trading.
