HOUSTON (ICIS)--China’s Jiangsu Haili Chemical is planning a propylene, cumene and phenol complex at Dafeng City in China's Jiangsu province, a US petrochemicals engineering firm said on Thursday.

Honeywell’s UOP petrochemicals engineering unit, which has been selected to provide its technologies for the project, said the complex will have capacities for 510,000 tonnes/year of propylene, 473,000 tonnes/year of cumene and 360,000 tonnes/year of phenol.

Start-up is expected in 2014.

With propane as a feedstock, the complex will use propane dehydrogenation (PDH) to produce propylene.

Honeywell UOP will provide engineering design, technology licensing, catalysts, adsorbents, equipment, staff training and technical services for the project, it said without disclosing financial details.

Jiangsu Haili’s plans come amid rising global demand for propylene and phenol, in particular in China, said Pete Piotrowski, senior vice-president for process technology and equipment at Honeywell UOP.

Jiangsu Haili Chemical is a subsidiary of Shandong Haili Chemical Industry, which is headquartered at Zibo City in Shandong province.
