2017-07-17    [Source:PUdaily]

PUdaily, Shanghai-The propylene oxide project production equipment completed successful running recently which is the joint construction of Sinopec and Huntsman, producing qualified propylene oxide and methyl tert-butyl ether. This project has been launched for 4 years and the successful start-up this time is of great significance to optimizing the Nanjing industry layout, accelerating the formation of Jiangsu high value-added petrochemical industrial chain, promoting the development of new energy-saving environmental protection material and the popularizing of high quality clean oil.

Nanjing Jinling Huntsman New Material Co., LTD is a company jointly funded by Sinopec and Huntsman Chemical Trading (Shanghai). It was registered in Nanjing chemical industrial park in Nov. 2012 with a total investment of 4.9 billion RMB. The propylene oxide project was launched relying on the resource advantage of Sinopec Nanjing low carbon hydrocarbon and the advanced technology of the American Huntsman company.

The project’s technical skills of producing Propylene oxide and methyl tert-butyl ether adopting Propylene and isobutane co-oxidation are characterized by high product output, low energy consumption of the equipment and little “three wastes”, meeting the requirements of the national industrial development policy. It is the current ideal propylene oxide production technology in the world. After the completion, the annual output of propylene oxide will stand at 240,000 tons and methyl tert-butyl ether at 742,000 tons.

Propylene oxide is an important raw material for fine chemical products and is widely used in automobile, construction, food, tobacco, medicine and cosmetics industries. Methyl tert-butyl ether is a good gasoline high octane additive and anti-explosive agent, with relatively high oxygen content, which can significantly lower the vehicle exhaust emissions.

The project was laid a foundation in January 2013, and the main device was handed in on November 18, 2016. During the start-up phase, the production team, with close cooperation with the units of design, construction and supervision, has kept on optimizing construction network and promoting advancement in a manner of safety, high quality, high efficiency and good order, thus ensuring the equipment’s successful running for the first time.
