CB&I today announced it has been awarded a contract by Dongguan Grand Resource Science & Technology Co. for the license and engineering design of a grassroots propane dehydrogenation unit to be built at Dongguan City, Guangdong Province, China. The unit will use CB&I's Catofin catalytic dehydrogenation technology and Clariant's tailor-made Catofin catalyst to produce 600,000 metric tons/year of propylene. The plant has been optimized to reduce the number of equipment items and lower propane consumption, CB&I says.
