DuPont Clean Technologies is awarded the contract to supply the China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (Sinopec) with a second Stratko alkylation unit; this time for the Sinopec Qilu Petrochemical Corporation (Sinopec Qilu). The Sinopec Qilu company is a large-scale refiner and producer of petrochemicals, fertilizers and chemical fiber in Zibo, Shandong Province. In order to comply with the China V standard of 10 ppm sulfur content for fuel, Sinopec commissioned DuPont for the license, engineering and equipment of a Stratko alkylation unit with 400 kmta (10,300 bpsd) alkylate capacity.

The Stratko alkylation unit will reportedly enable Sinopec Qilu to generate low-sulfur, high-octane, low-Rvp alkylate with zero olefins that meets the criteria of the China V standard. Startup is targeted for mid-2018, according to DuPont.

“Sinopec is driving gasoline and diesel production to new, lower-emission specifications at its refineries,” says Eli Ben-Shoshan, global business leader, DuPont Clean Technologies. “DuPont is pleased to be able to assist Sinopec with a custom-designed solution for its site to produce cleaner fuel.”

The Sinopec Tianjin Company (TPCC) previously awarded a contract to DuPont for a Stratko alkylation unit at its oil refinery in the Tianjin Binhai New Area district in northern China. The Tianjin alkylation unit startup is scheduled for mid-2018.
