CB&I has been awarded a contract by Jinneng Science & Technology Co., for the license and engineering design of a propane dehydrogenation (PDH) unit in Qingdao, Shandong Province, China.

The unit will use CB&I's CATOFIN technology to produce 900,000 metric tons of propylene per year. It will also utilise CATOFIN catalyst and heat generating material from CB&I's catalyst partner, Clariant. Once the unit is complete, it will be the world's largest single-train PDH unit.

"CB&I's CATOFIN technology offers unmatched reliability and optimisation," said Daniel M. McCarthy, CB&I's executive vice president of Technology. "For our customers who license the technology, these benefits result in lower capital and operations costs for their projects and investments."
