Chicago Bridge & Iron Company N.V. (CB&I) announced that Lummus Technology has been awarded a contract by China Coal Shaanxi Yulin Energy & Chemical Co. Ltd. for the license and engineering design of two light olefins recovery units. The plants will be located in Yulin, Shaanxi Province, China. The start-up of the first unit is expected in 2013.

The recovery units, which use breakthrough technology to recover olefins (ethylene and propylene) produced from methanol feed, are each expected to yield 300,000 metric tonnes per annum (MTA) of polymer grade ethylene, and 300,000 MTA of polymer grade propylene.

In addition, the Olefins Conversion Technology (OCT) from Lummus Technology was selected to upgrade the by-product produced by the light olefins recovery units into an additional 165,000 MTA of polymer grade propylene.

Propylene is a building block used to manufacture a variety of household goods, including plastics, paint and detergents. Ethylene is used to produce such products as plastics, fibers and rubber.

China Coal Shaanxi Yulin Energy & Chemical Co. Ltd. is a part of China Coal Group, one of the key state-owned enterprises under the state-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council, and the most distinctive large-scale energy group in China's coal industry.

CB&I engineers and constructs some of the world's largest energy infrastructure projects. With premier process technology from its Lummus Technology business, proven EPC expertise, and unrivaled storage tank experience, CB&I executes projects from concept to completion. Safely. Reliably. Globally.
