SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Sinopec Changling Petrochemical plans to bring its new 100,000 tonne/year propylene oxide (PO) plant at Hunan province in central China on stream at the end of 2013, a company source said on Thursday.
The HPPO process is said to be a cleaner method of producing PO, as it is environmentally friendly and consumes less energy compared with using chlorohydrin.
PO is a major feedstock used in the production of propylene glycol (PG).
Construction on the PO plant started in January this year.
