Honeywell UOP’ s technology has been selected to help produce key ingredients for fuels, synthetic rubber and plastics in China. China’s Heilongjiang Anruijia Petrochemical Co. will use Honeywell’s UOP C4 Oleflex™ process to produce isobutylene, a key ingredient for fuels and synthetic rubber, and its UOP Butamer™ process to produce normal butane, a feedstock used to produce the plastic building block, ethylene.
Compared with competing processes, Oleflex technology provides the lowest cash cost of production, the highest return on investment and the smallest environmental footprint, enabled by high isobutylene yields, low energy and water consumption, and use of a fully recyclable platinum alumina-based catalyst system.
Honeywell’s UOP will also provide the engineering design, technology licensing, catalysts, adsorbents, equipment, staff training and technical service for the project.
