CB&I announced it has been awarded a contract by Shandong Sincier Petrochemical Co., Ltd. for the license and engineering design of a grassroots propane and butane dehydrogenation unit to be built in Dongying, Shandong Province, China.
 
The unit will use the CATOFIN dehydrogenation technology offered from CB&I and Clariant´s tailor-made CATOFIN catalyst to process feeds containing 165,000 metric tons per year (MTA) of propane and 250,000 MTA of iso-butane for the joint production of propylene and isobutylene.
 
"This project award demonstrates the flexibility of the CATOFIN technology and catalyst to allow customers to co-process multiple feed compositions at optimal conditions for the highest yields with proven operational reliability," said Daniel McCarthy, President of CB&I's Technology operating group. "The new CATOFIN unit will enable Shandong Sincier to process cost effective LPG feedstocks."
 
Propylene and isobutylene will be used as building blocks to produce a variety of plastics and solvents.
