UOP LLC Key Developments

Ningxia Baota Chemical Fiber Co., Ltd. Selects UOP LLC for Technologies

UOP LLC announced that Ningxia Baota Chemical Fiber Co. Ltd. will use Honeywell UOP's generation technologies and equipment to build an energy-efficient petrochemical complex. The Yinchuan City, Ningxia, China, complex will produce valuable petrochemicals as well as high-quality gasoline, and is expected to come online in 2018. The new complex will be the in China to use Honeywell UOP's energy efficient aromatics complex design to convert heavy naphtha, a product of the oil refining process, into 800,000 metric tons per year of high-purity para-xylene. Para-xylene is the primary component for making synthetic fibers, packaging and plastics, and it is in high demand in Asia. The plant will also produce 520,000 metric tons per year of high-quality gasoline and 200,000 metric tons per year of benzene, a basic petrochemical building block. Honeywell UOP technologies licensed for the complex include: The UOP Naphtha Hydrotreating process to pre-treat reforming feed. The UOP CCR Platforming™ process to convert low-quality naphtha to high-octane blending components for gasoline and a feed for aromatics production. The UOP Extractive Distillation (ED) Sulfolane™ process to recover high-purity benzene and toluene. The UOP Tatoray™ process to increase production of benzene and xylenes. The UOP Parex™ process to recover para-xylene from mixed xylenes. The UOP Isomar™ process to convert mixed xylenes or naphtha reformate into more valuable high-purity para-xylene. The UOP Par-Isom™ process to upgrade light naphtha into high-value isomerate for gasoline blending.

Better Clean Energy Licenses Advanced Methanol-To-Olefins Process of UOP LLC

UOP LLC announced that Better Clean Energy has licensed its Advanced Methanol-to-Olefins (MTO) process to convert methanol into high-value petrochemicals, helping meet growing global demand for plastics and other key materials. Honeywell UOP's MTO technology provides a cost-effective way to convert methanol derived from coal or natural gas, rather than imported crude oil, into the components to make plastics, synthetics and other materials. This award is Honeywell UOP's fifth licensing win for its MTO process and comes after the successful start up of its first commercial-scale MTO facility for China's Wison Clean Energy in September 2013. That unit has produced more than 360 million pounds of ethylene and propylene since it went into production, meeting all of its performance criteria, including yield quality and quantity. Better Clean Energy will use Honeywell UOP's Advanced MTO process to produce 300,000 metric tons of ethylene and propylene per year at its new facility in Shandong province in Eastern China. In addition to technology licensing, Honeywell UOP will provide engineering, training, technical service and specialty equipment for the facility, which is expected to start up in 2016. Honeywell UOP's Advanced MTO process combines the UOP/Hydro MTO process and the Total/UOP Olefin Cracking process to significantly increase yields and feedstock efficiency. The process converts methanol from non-crude oil sources such as coal and natural gas into ethylene and propylene. In addition to offering the lowest operating cost, quick and efficient start-up and operational reliability, the Advanced MTO process also offers flexibility in the ratio of propylene and ethylene produced, so operators can adjust to most effectively meet market demands.

Grupa Azoty to Use C3 Oleflex Process Technology of UOP LLC

UOP LLC announced that its C3 Oleflex process technology will be used by Grupa Azoty to produce propylene. By 2020, 20% of the world's propylene production is expected to come from on-purpose propylene production technologies such as Honeywell UOP's Oleflex technology. Since the Oleflex process was developed, Honeywell UOP has continually improved the technology and the catalyst it uses. Compared with competing dehydrogenation processes, Oleflex technology provides the lowest cash cost of production, the return on investment and the smallest environmental footprint. This superior performance is characterized by low capital cost, high propylene yields, low energy consumption, and use of a fully recyclable platinum alumina-based catalyst system. In addition to the C3 Oleflex process to convert propane to propylene, Honeywell UOP also licenses its C4 Oleflex technology, a butane dehydrogenation process to convert isobutane to isobutylene. In addition to technology licensing, Honeywell UOP and local affiliates will provide engineering design, catalysts, adsorbents, equipment, staff training and technical service for the project. The Police facility also uses technologies from Honeywell Process Solutions at several of its operating units, including Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS), Safety Manager, Profit Controllers and TotalPlant Solutions. These software technologies help plant personnel manage operations, maximize efficiency and increase uptime.
