CB&I (NYSE: CBI) announced today that Lummus Technology has been awarded a contract by Ningbo Haiyue New Material Co. Limited for the license and engineering design of a grassroots sulfuric acid alkylation unit to be built near Ningbo City, Zhejiang Province, China.

The unit, which is scheduled to start up at the end of 2013, will use the CDAlky(R) advanced low temperature sulfuric acid alkylation process to produce 600,000 metric tonnes per annum of alkylate. Alkylate is a low-sulfur, high-octane gasoline additive used to produce cleaner burning automotive fuels.

"Our new CDAlky technology is being introduced for the first time on a commercial scale in this world-class alkylation facility," said Dan McCarthy, President of CB&I's Lummus Technology business sector. "The technology provides a premier, cost-effective solution for producing high-octane gasoline in China, where there is urgent demand for cleaner fuels."
