LONDON (ICIS news)--German technology company Uhde has won a contract to build an aromatics plant for China’s Risun Chemical Co, which is due to come online in Tangshan, in Heibei province, in 2010, the company said in a statement on Wednesday.
According to the statement, the plant will have a throughput capacity of 200,000 tonnes/year of coke oven light oil, producing benzene, toluene and xylenes.
A source close to the company said the successful contracts were worth a total of around €10-20m ($14-28m).
Risun Chemical is a subsidiary of the Risun Group.
Combined with a second plant in Xingtai, which is based on Uhde technology, Risun's total production capacity of coke oven light oil will be 260,000 tonnes/year.
The deal brings the number of contracts won for Uhde to six in the last 15 months, the statement said.
The statement said other plants to be built were in Qujing and ?xml:namespace>
Uhde’s technology allows coke producers to better utilise the BTX, which is a natural by-product of their production process, the source said.
