ZAO Far East Petrochemical Company (FEPCO), which
is implementing the NK Rosneft project of OJSC for the construction of petrochemical complex to be located
in Primorsk region of Russia, has selected Axens
AlphaButol and AlphaHexol technologies for
the production of high-purity linear alpha-olefins.
It is expected that AlphaButol and AlphaHexol units with
cumulating capacity of 50,000 tpy of linear alpha-olefins will
be included in the complex, officials said.
AlphaButol will supply high purity 1-Butene by ethylene
dimerization, while AlphaHexol will produce high purity
1-Hexene by ethylene trimerization.
Based on homogeneous catalysis and associated to a low
investment cost, both technologies are designed and optimized
to ensure a flexible and reliable source of co-monomers for
downstream polyolefins applications.
