PKN uses UOP Q-Max & Phenol 3G for a phenol complex

Honeywell announced that PKN ORLEN plans to use the UOP Q-Max™ and Phenol 3G technologies to produce 200,000 metric tons per annum of phenol at its facility in Płock, Poland. UOP is providing a license for the technology, in addition to basic engineering design services, plus key equipment, catalysts and adsorbents, and technical services. 
As part of the project, UOP will provide a cumene unit and a phenol unit with alpha methyl styrene hydrogenation. When completed, the new complex would increase PKN’s market position in high-margin petrochemicals including phenol and acetone.
When integrated, the two technologies offer even lower utility consumption and a high yield of phenol, with outstanding operating flexibility, on-stream time, reliability and safety. UOP Q-Max technology is currently licensed in 26 units worldwide, with a total capacity of more than 9 million tons per annum. The UOP phenol technology also is licensed in 22 units worldwide, with a total phenol capacity of more than 5 million tons per annum.
