According to market sources, Borealis will use Honeywell’s process technology for its new plant being built in Kallo, Belgium. Borealis will reportedly use Honeywell’s C3 Oleflex technology to be able to produce 740,000 tons/year of polymer-grade propylene.

Honeywell’s C3 Oleflex technology converts propane to propylene using a catalytic dehydrogenation. It has minimum impact on the environment by low energy consumption, low emission and recyclability and it helps maximize operations as well as on-stream reliability.

Previously, the possible start-up date of the plant was set as the second half of 2021. The production capacity planned for the new PDH plant is 740,000 tons/year of propylene which makes it one of the biggest PDH sites in the world.

Recently, Al Waha Petrochemical Company, a joint venture between Sahara and Basell Arabie Investissements S.A.S, said that it will use Honeywell’s IIoT-based Connected Performance Services (CPS) at its Oleflex unit in Jubail in order to maximize propylene production and optimize propane consumption.
