INEOS selects Clariantĺs CATOFIN« catalysts for Europeĺs largest propane dehydrogenation plant

 |  Subj: Press-releses

Clariant, aáworld leader ináspecialty chemicals, announced today thatáit was awarded aálong-termásupply contract byáINEOS toásupply CATOFIN catalysts andáHeat Generating Material (HGM) foráaámajor propane dehydrogenation plant toábe constructed ináEurope. Scheduled forácompletion iná2023, theáfacility is designed toáproduce 750,000ámetric tons ofápropylene annually, which willámake it theálargest propane dehydrogenation plant ináEurope.

Theácontract is ofáparticular importance asáINEOS is one ofátheáworldĺs top three chemicals manufacturing companies byásales revenue. Forátheáproject, Clariant willácollaborate witháits process partner, McDermott, which has exclusive licensing rights toáLummusĺ CATOFIN technology. Clariant is theásole developer andásupplier ofátailor-made catalysts andáHGMáforátheáCATOFIN process.

Rob Ingram, CEO INEOS Europe Group AG, commented, ôWe are proud toábe constructing theácontinentĺs largest propane dehydrogenation unit. This major project represents our dedication toátheáEuropean chemicals industry. CATOFIN technology andácatalysts were selected based onátheir excellent resource efficiency andáprocess reliability, which willáenable us toárealize our sustainable strategy inátheácoming decades.ö

Stefan Heuser, Senior Vice President & GeneraláManager Business Unit Catalysts atáClariant, added, ôWe are honored toábe part ofátheáINEOS chemicals companyĺs groundbreaking propane dehydrogenation plant, andápleased toácollaborate witháMcDermott. CATOFIN technology, catalysts andáHGMáare theáoptimalásolution forátheáincreasing globaládemand foráon-purpose propylene production. Ináthis highly competitive market, they provide our customers witháexcellent financialáandáperformance advantages compared toáconventionalámethods.ö

Ináoperation atá17áfacilities worldwide, comprising overá8ámillion tons per year, CATOFIN dehydrogenation technology is aáhighly reliable method used toáproduce olefins, sucháasápropylene oráisobutylene, fromálight paraffin feedstocks. Theáprocess operates atáoptimumáreactor pressure andátemperature toámaximize conversion andáselectivity ofápropane toápropylene, whileáreducing investment andáoperating costs. Theárobust catalyst complies withátheáREACH regulation ofátheáEuropean Union, andáit is proven toáincrease theáprofitability, sustainability andáreliability ofáplant operations.

Clariantĺs Heat Generating Material (HGM) enhances theáperformance advantages ofáCATOFIN technology andácatalysts. Asáits name implies, theápatented metal-oxide materialáis designed toáproduce heat andádrive theádehydrogenation reaction, thereby further increasing yields andáconserving energy, asáwelláasáreducing emissions.

CATOFIN« IS AáTRADEMARK OFáCLARIANT REGISTERED INáMANY COUNTRIES.
