Toyo Engineering Corp. has been awarded a contract by Tosoh Corp. to construct a naphtha cracking furnace of for producing ethylene at its Yokkaichi Complex. TOYO had participated in this construction project from an early stage.

This naphtha cracking furnace employs advanced technology developed by CB&I Technology Inc. (Lummus Technology) with which TOYO maintains a mutually beneficial relationship for more than half a century. The cracking furnace is of the latest type with improved ethylene yield based on Lummus’ method, which is the first to be introduced in Japan. Lummus’ technology has been adopted in approximately 40% of the world’s ethylene plants. TOYO has constructed 45 Lummus-based ethylene plants and will continue to cooperate with Lummus to be engaged in more ethylene projects.
