Lummus technology (Houston) Technology announces that Shandong Yulong Petrochemical Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of China’s Nanshan Group, has chosen its CDAlka technology for use in the new alkylation facility 400,000 tons / year. The unit will be part of the 20,000 KTA integrated project for the Shandong Yulong Refining and Petrochemical Industry, a mega-complex in Shandong Province, China.
“Our customers are counting on Lummus to help cost-effectively and safely produce cleaner fuels with less environmental impact, namely on the Lummus CDAlka technology is reaching, “said Leon de Bruyne, President and CEO of Lummus Technology.” CDAlka produces very high-octane alkylate in a premium proven and economical way. Lummus’ strategic goal is to play a leading role in improving the sustainability of our industry, and helping our customers switch to cleaner and more efficient fuels is an important step. ”
The scope of this Lummus award includes technology licensing, basic engineering, technical services and the supply of proprietary equipment. CDAlka the technology will allow to produce alkylate with high octane rating and low sulfur concentration without any olefins. This results in mixing of the component with gasoline, which improves fuel efficiency and reduces environmental impact.
In addition to alkylation technology, Lummus licenses several other technologies for Shandong Yulun. In 2020, Shandong Yulong chose Lummus as a licensor for two mixed feed crackers, two polypropylene lines, an ethylbenzene plant and a styrene monomer plant. These facilities are also part of a comprehensive Shandong Yulong refining and petrochemical project.
