SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Lurgi has obtained a contract to license its methanol-to-propylene (MTP) technology to Datang International Power Generation, the German company said late on Monday.

This was in addition to an earlier contract from Shenhua Ningxia Coal Industry Group, the technology provider said in a statement, adding that the value of the two contracts was more than €100m ($131.4m).

The project, which would produce around 500,000 tonnes/year of polypropylene (PP) from coal, is due to go on stream in late 2008, it said.

ICIS news previously reported that Datang Power will build a coal-to-olefins (CTO) project at Chifeng, Inner Mongolia province.

The project will produce 460,000 tonnes/year of propylene, 120,000 tonnes/year of gasoline and 45,000 tonnes/year of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).

Datang has also selected Dow Chemical’s polypropylene (PP) technology for a planned 453,700 tonnes/year plant downstream of the MTP unit.
