Honeywell UOP Technology Selected To Help Meet Growing Demand For Key Petrochemicals In China

The UOP Oleflex process converts propane to propylene and isobutane to isobutylene using catalytic dehydrogenation. Compared with competing processes, Honeywell's UOP Oleflex technology provides the smallest environmental footprint, the lowest cash cost of production and the highest return on investment. Worldwide, UOP has been awarded 25 out of the last 29 dehydrogenation projects in the last three years. The technology consistently performs well due to its high reliability, low capital cost, low energy and water consumption, high olefin yields, and a fully recyclable platinum alumina-based catalyst system.  

In addition, unique to the Oleflex process, independent reaction and regeneration systems are in place that allow continuous use of catalysts for steady-state operations (non swing-bed), which helps maximize operating flexibility, up time and reliability. Since the Oleflex technology was commercialized in 1990, UOP has commissioned 10 C 3 Oleflex units for on-purpose propylene production and six C 4 Oleflex units for on-purpose isobutylene production.  Since the beginning of 2011, UOP has announced 17 new Oleflex units worldwide.

The UOP Butamer process uses high-activity, chloride-promoted catalysts in the presence of hydrogen to convert isobutane to normal butane. To date, UOP has commissioned 77 Butamer units to convert normal butane to isobutane and two Butamer units to convert isobutane to normal butane.UOP LLC, headquartered in Des Plaines, Illinois, USA, is a leading international supplier and licensor of process technology, catalysts, adsorbents, process plants, and consulting services to the petroleum refining, petrochemical, and gas processing industries. UOP is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Honeywell International, Inc. and is part of Honeywell's Performance Materials and Technologies strategic business group. For more information, go to
