UOP LLC, a Honeywell (NYSE: HON) company, announced today it has successfully commissioned its 200th CCR Platforming process unit, a milestone in the refining process technology area.

The unit, in operation at Sinopec Hainan Petrochemical Co.’s newest refinery in the Hainan Province of China, will allow Sinopec, the region’s largest producer and supplier of oil products and petrochemical products, to supply clean fuel and chemical feedstocks throughout China. It will use UOP’s most advanced CCR Reforming catalysts, which are designed for high liquid and hydrogen yields, low coke production and maximum process unit profitability.

“UOP is proud to have reached this important milestone and we will continue to develop innovative processes and technologies,” said Norm Gilsdorf, senior vice president of UOP’s Process Technology & Equipment business unit.

“We are equally as proud of our long partnership with China, including Sinopec, and our efforts to help China achieve its tremendous sustainable growth.”

The highly energy efficient CCR Platforming is a continuous catalytic reforming process used throughout the petroleum and petrochemical industries to produce aromatics and hydrogen from naphthenes and paraffins. First commercialized in 1971, UOP’s CCR Platforming process has been licensed in more than 27 units in China since 1985, representing more than 26 million metric tons a year of throughput in China.

In addition to CCR technology, UOP has licensed 12 aromatics complexes, two Linear Alky Benzene (LAB) complexes and various petroleum refining technologies to Sinopec since the early 1980s.
