GTC Technology chosen for China aromatics unit

GTC Technology has signed an agreement with Shandong Sincier Chemical Group (SSCG) to provide its GT-BTX licensed technology for a 450,000 tpy aromatics extraction unit at a new refinery in Dongying, Shandong Province.

The new unit is the eighth GT-BTX license in China and will play an integral role in the 5-million tpy refinery being constructed by SSCG. Start-up is planned for 2016.

GTC will also supply the basic engineering package, technical services, proprietary solvent and equipment.

“We are excited about this opportunity to provide SSCG with our GT-BTX® technology,” said Sam Kumar, president of GTC (Beijing) Technology. 

“Our goal is to serve our clients with value-added performance from our technologies and by extension serve the Asian fuels and chemicals market," he added.

The BTX unit is GTC’s second project for SSCG, following an award for a light naphtha isomerization unit (the first in China) using GTC’s Isomalk-2 and Isomalk-3 technologies.
