UOP technology to produce petrochemicals in Brunei
Des Plaines-based UOP LLC, a Honeywell (company, announced today that its technology has been selected to produce key petrochemicals in a new complex in Brunei.
Brunei Hengyi Industries Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of China's Zhejiang Hengyi Group Co., will use several of Honeywell's UOP technologies to produce aromatics, which are key materials used in the production of polymers, plastics, resins and synthetic fibers such as polyester and nylon.
"As the demand for aromatics grows in the region, producers are looking for ways to maximize product yields, while reducing production costs and minimizing investment costs," said Pete Piotrowski, senior vice president and general manager of Honeywell's UOP Process Technology and Equipment business unit. "UOP's integrated aromatics technology will provide the lowest energy consumption, cost of production and overall investment cost."
Aromatics products derived at the facility will help meet growing demand for plastics and synthetic fibers in the region. The project, to be located in Pulau Muara Besar, Brunei Darussalam, is expected to be one of the largest aromatics complexes in the world.
Honeywell's UOP will provide engineering, training and technical services, catalysts, adsorbents, and specialty equipment for the project. Aromatics production is expected to start up in 2015.
