Clariant and Lummus Technology Awarded Catalyst Contract for Huizhou Boeko’s Dehydrogenation of Isobutane Plant

Huizhou Boeko Materials Co. Ltd. has chosen Clariant and Lummus Technology to supply their CATOFIN catalyst and process technology for the dehydrogenation of isobutane at a new plant in Huizhou City, China. This marks the first time Huizhou Boeko will use the CATOFIN technology at one of their sites. The scope of the project includes the technology license and basic engineering, with the plant expected to produce 550,000 million tpy of net isobutylene upon completion.

The CATOFIN process is highly efficient, utilizing fixed-bed reactors operating at optimal pressure and temperature for maximum catalytic dehydrogenation of isobutane. This results in high yields of isobutylene at low investment and operating costs. Jens Cuntze, Business President Catalysts and APAC at Clariant, expressed excitement about delivering their CATOFIN catalyst to this first Huizhou Boeko plant and anticipates a successful partnership. CATOFIN offers reliability, productivity, and increased profitability for the plant.

Clariant’s CATOFIN catalyst is licensed by Lummus Technology, which provides a range of process technologies for various industries including hydrocarbons processing. Lummus Technology’s expertise in this area makes them an ideal partner for Huizhou Boeko as they seek to improve their production processes and increase their overall efficiency.
