Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 2/20/2007, Location: Asia

Dragon aromatics based in Xiamen, China has finalized a technology license agreement for a ParamaX aromatics complex with Axens (Rueil-Malmaison, France). The new plant is designed to maximize the production of paraxylene for a polyester chips and fiber production.

The complex is expected to be completed in two-stages. The first stage, expected to start-up in 2009, is designed to produce over 1.0 million tons per year (tpy) of high purity aromatics components: 800,000 tpy of paraxylene, 160,000 tpy of orthoxylene, and 228,000 tpy of benzene.

The ParamaX technologies included in the complex are:
- Naphtha hydrotreating – feedstock purification
- aromizing ™ – mixed aromatics production
- Eluxyl – paraxylene purification
- Oparis™ – C8 aromatics isomerization (xylenes and ethylbenzene)
- TransPlus – aromatics transalkylation

In a second stage, the addition of an EluMXSM metaxylene production unit is planned. ParamaX designates a suite of technologies for the production of benzene and paraxylene from naphtha. Axens and ExxonMobil Chemical have entered into an Alliance to provide paraxylene production technologies for grassroots paraxylene complexes around the world.
