Guangxi Huayi New Material Co., Ltd, a subsidiary of Shanghai Huayi, will use Honeywell UOP C3 Oleflex™ technology for propane dehydrogenation for the production of 750 000 t of polymer-grade propylene at its plant in Qinzhou, Guangxi, China.

UOP will provide services, catalysts and adsorbents for the Huayi plant. The project marks the 38th award for C3 Oleflex technology in China, which continues to see increased growth and demand for propylene, the primary component in many plastic resins, films and fibres.

“Our agreement with Huayi for Oleflex marks the second 750 kmta unit in China, where demand for propylene derivatives is surging,” said Bryan Glover, vice president and general manager, UOP Process Technologies. “Huayi chose Oleflex based on our extensive commercial experience and will use it to produce on-purpose propylene for its downstream acrylic acid unit, as well as cumene and phenol units to support the creation of industrial and consumer products.”
