According to a press release on the company’s web site, CB&I, a leading provider of technology and infrastructure for the energy industry, has been awarded a contract by Xuzhou HaiDing Chemical Technology Co. Ltd. for the license and engineering design of a brand new propane dehydrogenation (PDH) unit in China.

The unit is planned to be built in Pizhou, Jiangsu Province while it will use CB&I’s CATOFIN® catalytic dehydrogenation technology and Clariant’s tailor-made, non-noble, CATOFIN catalyst to produce 600,000 tons/year of propylene.

"We look forward to furthering our technology footprint in China by licensing CATOFIN to Xuzhou HaiDing Chemical Technology’s fast-track project," Daniel M. McCarthy, CB&I’s Executive Vice President of Technology stated in the release.

Meanwhile, no further details were available regarding the exact start-up date of the new PDH unit at the time of the publication.
