HOUSTON (ICIS)--Honeywell has won another contract to license its methanol-to-olefins (MTO) technology to a chemicals producer in China, the US-based industrial and technology firm said on Thursday.

The MTO process, by Honeywell's UOP petrochemicals technology business, converts methanol from coal into key plastics building blocks.

Honeywell said that China's Shandong Yangmei Hengtong Chemicals will use the process to produce ethylene and propylene at a plant in Tancheng, Linyi City, in China's Shandong province. 

Production is expected to start up in 2014, Honeywell said without disclosing financial details.

Shandong Yangmei Hengtong
said last month that the project is expected to produce about 150,000 tonnes/year of ethylene and 150,000 tonnes/year of propylene.

Honeywell previously won contracts to license the MTO technology to China's Wison (Nanjing) Clean Energy and to Jiutai Energy (Zhungeer).
