Honeywell announced that Zhejiang Petrochemical Co. Ltd. (ZPC) will use a range of process technology from Honeywell UOP, for a new integrated refining and petrochemical complex in Zhoushan, Zhejiang Province.

Honeywell UOP will supply a wide range of technologies in the form of license, design, key equipment, and catalysts and adsorbents, while Honeywell Process Solutions will provide the process controls and automation systems.

The project includes a two-train LD Parex™ aromatics complex including the UOP Sulfolane™, Isomar™ and Tatoray™ processes for the production of 4 MMT per year of paraxylene.

The new plant also will include an RFCC complex, using Honeywell UOP’s RCD Unionfining™ and RFCC™ processes to upgrade 5 MMT per year of residual oil into fuels.

An Oleflex™ propane dehydrogenation unit will produce 600,000 MT per year of polymer-grade propylene, in addition to synthetic rubber and gasoline additives.

The project also will include a Honeywell UOP Unicracking™ hydrocracker to convert vacuum gas oil into petrochemical feedstocks, two CCR PlatformingTM units to produce aromatics, and blend stocks for making high-octane fuels, and a Unionfining naphtha hydrotreating unit to remove sulfur.
