Honeywell technology to work on Egypt's Sidpec refinery production
(MENAFN) Honeywell UOP's C3 Oleflex technology has been selected by Egypt's Sidi Kerir Petrochemicals Co (Sidpec) to generate 500,000 metric tons per year of on-purpose propylene at its refinery in Amerya.
Honeywell is set to present the project with the process design package, proprietary and non-proprietary equipment, on-site operator training, technical services for startup and continuing operation.
Honeywell UOP Middle East regional general manager Jim Moshi said "Honeywell UOP was chosen because it has the greatest experience in propane dehydrogenation technology, and because the Oleflex solution provided the best economics versus other solutions."
Moshi added "this plant will allow Sidpec to expand its portfolio and take advantage of domestically produced propane to make products such as polypropylene."
