Recently, Clariant and its process partner Lummus signed an important contract with Fujian Meide to provide catofin technology and catalyst for its new * * * propane dehydrogenation (PDH) unit in Fuzhou, China. Fujian Meide phase I PDH plant has been put into operation in its Fuzhou plant. At present, it is building one of the largest PDH plants in the world. The plant uses catofin process and catalyst, with an annual output of 900000 tons of special propylene for further production of polypropylene. The new PDH unit is planned to be put into operation in 2023.
Jace Wang, vice president of Greater China of Clariant catalyst business, said: "this strategic cooperation reflects Clariant's commitment to promoting product innovation through groundbreaking chemical technology. Just as our heating material (HGM), combined with Loomis * * * process technology, it has reduced the energy consumption of catofin process by one third and become a low-carbon technology for propylene production."

Clariant catofin catalyst tailored to the catofin propylene production process.
Leon de Bruyn, President and CEO of Loomis, added: "over the years, we have worked closely with Clariant to continuously improve the catofin process technology for the benefit of our customers. This technology has been proven to be effective in improving productivity, and can usually exceed the design capacity (an average of 110% of the design capacity) As a result, the return on investment of the manufacturer has been greatly improved, and the profit margin of daily operation is higher. Catofin has therefore become a * * * technology for propylene production. "
Zhengzhaohui, chairman of Fujian Meide Petrochemical Co., Ltd., said: "Our second set of PDH device has an annual capacity of 900000 tons, which will rank among the largest devices with a global capacity of * * *. Catofin is a PDH technology that has been successfully commercialized and verified in this scale so far. We need excellent performance. Catofin has become our * * * because it is recognized as one of the solutions for * * * in the PDH industry. Facts have proved that Klein and Loomis are our * * * partners in both products and expertise. ”
Catofin process combines the advanced technology of Loomis with Clariant customized catalyst and heating material (HGM) to convert propane to propylene with ultra-high reliability. Since it was put into commercial operation in 2017, catofin has been adopted by 34 new projects around the world, with an annual capacity of more than 24million tons of new propylene. More than 50% of these units are located in China.
Fujian Meide Petrochemical Co., Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Zhongjing Petrochemical Group, is headquartered in Fuzhou, Fujian Province. The main business of Zhongjing Petrochemical Group covers energy, petrochemical, logistics, packaging and other industries. It is the largest biaxial oriented polypropylene film (BOPP) manufacturer in China, with an annual capacity of 1million tons of BOPP and 4million tons of polypropylene (PP).
