HOUSTON (ICIS)--Jacobs has won a contract from a Honeywell-Sinochem joint venture for work on a planned hydrofluorocarbon (HFC)-245fa project at Taicang in China’s Jiangsu province, the US-based petrochemicals engineering firm said on Tuesday.

The 12,000 tonne/year joint-venture plant between Honeywell and Sinochem, first announced in October, is expected to start up in late 2013.

Jacobs’ contract includes engineering and procurement services for the project. The company did not disclose the value of the deal.

HFC-245fa is a non-ozone-depleting rigid foam blowing agent used in insulation for appliances, construction, transportation and other applications in which high energy efficiency is required.
