Work is progressing on two GTC projects in China. For Hengli (Dalian) Refinery and Petrochemical Co., GTC is providing two aromatics extraction units using GT-BTX®. The two units will be the largest of their kind in the world, with a combined capacity of 3MMTA of benzene, toluene and xylenes.
For DongYing YaTong Petrochemical Co., Ltd. of China, GTC is installing a 550kta GT-BTX® aromatics extraction/ separation unit. The installation is the first GT-DWC® application in China for aromatics separation.
The projects are a collaborative effort between four GTC offices: Beijing and Houston (licensing), and Beijing, Non-san and Euless (tower internals design and manufacturing).
RongRong Zhang, Senior Process Engineer/GTC Beijing, is the Installation Supervisor with support from Renwei ‘Rain’ Wang, Engineer/GTC Beijing.
