DES PLAINES, Ill.—China's Longgang Chemical Co. has selected UOP L.L.C.'s UOP Olefex process technology to produce key ingredients for synthetic rubber and fuels.
The process from UOP—a division of Honeywell—will be used to convert refinery-derived isobutane to isobutylene, a petrochemical used in the production of SR and fuels, Honeywell said.
This is UOP's second C4 Oleflex process license in China, Honeywell said. In addition to technology licensing, Honeywell's UOP will provide basic engineering, catalysts, adsorbents, specialty equipment and engineering for the project.
