Borealis chooses Honeywell Technology for plant in Belgium
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.
