Lummus Technology awarded a technology contract

Lummus Technology announced that it has been awarded a technology contract by Shandong Yulong Petrochemical Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of China’s Nanshan Group. Lummus will provide Master Licensor services for multiple licensed units, consisting of two mixed feed crackers, an EB/SM plant, and two polypropylene (PP) lines. The scope includes technology licensing, process design package, training, and advisory services, master licensor integration services, and catalyst supply for the PP plant. 
The plants will be part of Shandong Yulong’s 20,000 kta Refining and Petrochemical Integrated Project, a mega-complex to be located in the Province of Shandong that recently received government approval.
The mixed feed ethylene crackers will utilize Lummus’ ethylene technology incorporating the SRT® (Short Residence Time) VII cracking heaters that have the highest proven yields in the industry, and the low-pressure chilling train and patented multi-component refrigeration, which reduces investment costs and improves reliability by eliminating plant equipment. The EB/SM plants will utilize the Lummus/UOP EBOne and CLASSIC SM technologies for reliable and efficient production of ethylbenzene and styrene monomer, respectively. The PP plant will utilize Lummus Novolen Technology which demonstrates low overall capital and operating cost while providing the best range in products and high reliability.
