HOUSTON (ICIS)--China's Heilongjiang Anruijia Petrochemical plans to build an isobutylene and normal butane complex in ?xml:namespace>
Honeywell UOP, which won a contract to supply its technology for the project, said the plants would have capacities for 180,000 tonnes/year of isobutylene and 150,000 tonnes/year of normal butane. Production is expected to start up in 2014.
Honeywell's UOP will also provide the engineering design, technology licensing, catalysts, adsorbents, equipment, staff training and technical services for the project, it said.
Financial details were not disclosed.
The technologies Honeywell will supply include its C4 Oleflex and its Butamer processes.
The C4 Oleflex process uses catalytic dehydrogenation to convert isobutane to isobutylene. The Butamer process uses high-activity, chloride-promoted catalysts in the presence of hydrogen to convert isobutane to normal butane.
Heilongjiang Anruijia Petrochemical is a private company that is primarily focused on liquid petroleum gas trading, Honeywell said.
