Polypropylene technology contract for CB&I in China

CB&I has been awarded a contract by Shenhua Ningxia Coal Industry Group for the license and engineering design of a polypropylene unit to be built in Lingwu, Yinchuan City, Ningxia, People’s Republic of China.

The unit will use CB&I’s Novolen technology to produce 600,000TPA of polypropylene. There are already two units utilising Novolen technology on site, each with cascade and parallel production lines. At the completion of this third unit, the capacity on site will be increased to 1.6MTPA and the plant will be able to produce the full range of polypropylene grades. “Once the third polypropylene unit at Shenhua Ningxia’s site is running, it will be the largest polypropylene site in Chinaâ€?, said Daniel McCarthy, president of CB&I’s Technology operating group. “This site will also have the largest capacity of any of the Novolen technology licensees.”

Earlier, Shenhua Ningxia awarded CB&I contracts for the license and engineering design of the Olefins Conversion Technology, Comonomer Production Technology, CDHydro selective hydrogenation technology and CDIsis technology for this same complex.
