The plant, designed by Wison Engineering Ltd., an indirect non-wholly owned subsidiary of the Group, is located in the Nanjing Chemical Industry Park. It has successfully produced qualified ethylene and propylene products which meet the requirements set for polymer products, with a passing rate of 99.98% and 99.8% for ethylene and propylene products respectively, marking the first commercialization of Wison Engineering’s olefin separation technology for MTO plants, and also demonstrating yet another successful commercialization case of China’s coal-to-olefins technology, which will facilitates the coal-to-chemical industry development roadmap in China.
With planned annual production of 300kta of ethylene/ propylene, the MTO plant is one of the production units of Wison (Nanjing) Clean Energy Co., Ltd. (“Wison Clean Energy”). Following the commissioning of the first Shenhua Baotou coal-to-olefin project, the MTO plant marks a new successful initial start-up which not only employs Wison Engineering’s MTO technology, but is also the first MTO plant in the world to apply advanced Honeywell UOP industrial MTO technology.
