CB&I to supply CATOFIN technology to Jinneng’s refinery in China

Published 04 April 2018

CB&I has won a contract from Jinneng Science & Technology for the license and engineering design of a propane dehydrogenation (PDH) unit in Qingdao in the Chinese province of Shandong.

The unit will use CB&I's CATOFIN technology to produce 900,000 metric tons of propylene per year. It will also utilize CATOFIN catalyst and heat generating material from CB&I's catalyst partner, Clariant. Once the unit is complete, it will be the world's largest single-train PDH unit.  

CB&I technology executive vice president Daniel M. McCarthy said: "CB&I's CATOFIN technology offers unmatched reliability and optimization.

"For our customers who license the technology, these benefits result in lower capital and operations costs for their projects and investments."
