Shenghong Refining & Chemical (Lianyungang) Co., Ltd has selected Axens’ ebullated-bed residue hydrocracking technology H-Oil® for a capacity of 3,200,000 tons per year in combination with a 3,450,000 tons per year tons distillates hydrocracking technology HyK™ as the key units of its residue valorization for its petrochemical complex in Lianyungang, Jiangsu, China.
The project aims at increasing naphtha production capacity by 3,600,000 tons per year in single train units. The Axens’ solution will handle steam cracker py-oil as feed to the H-Oil® unit and effluents of existing Coker to the HyK™ unit.
The solution proposed by Axens features the following units: H-Oil® technology developed by Axens, applying supported catalysts from Shell Catalysts & Technologies in conjunction with HTI’s HCAT technology to maximize performances; and Maxi naphtha Distillate HyK™ (Hydrocracking) technology developed by Axens and applying advanced catalytic solution in combination with high-efficiency heat integration thanks to ZPJE spiraled tube heat exchangers technology.
This brand new state-of-the-art residue hydrocracking unit will allow Shenghong to improve its economic resilience and competitiveness while producing highly valuable petrochemical prone feeds.
