Jiangsu Sailboat to Use Honeywell Technology to Produce Propylene

March 1, 2019

Honeywell announced that Jiangsu Sailboat will utilise Honeywell UOP’s C3 Oleflex technology to produce propylene and meet the expected demand for plastics. The production is planned to be 700,000 metric tons per annum of polymer-grade propylene at its facility in Lianyungang City in China’s Jiangsu Province. The existing facility which utilizes Honeywell UOP’s methanol-to-olefins (MTO) process to produce ethylene and propylene of Jiangsu Sailboat is expected to be expanded. The coming facility will help meet the demand of plastics for consumer goods application owing to the additional output.
