As the core device of the transformation and upgrading project, the 1.2 million tonnes/year ethylene plant adopts PetroChina’s independent intellectual property rights of large-scale ethylene process technology, and the main products include polymerised ethylene, polymerised propylene, hydrogenated gasoline and styrene, while the by-production of hydrogen, mixed carbon IV, cracked carbon V, carbon IX, and cracked fuel oil, etc., which has achieved remarkable results in terms of “reducing oil and increasing chemistry” and “reducing oil, increasing chemistry” and adjusting structure. “The company has achieved remarkable results and formed an industrial layout and product structure with Guangxi’s petrochemical characteristics and competitive advantages.
Zhong Hengqin said, PetroChina Guangxi Petrochemical refining and chemical integration transformation and upgrading project 1.2 million tonnes/year ethylene device groundbreaking, marking the project formally entered the stage of large-scale and rapid construction, but also means that Qinzhou’s unique “oil, coal, gas” triple-heading diversified petrochemical industry system is further improved. At present, Qinzhou comprehensively implement the regional party committee’s strategic deployment of industrial strength, anchored in the green low-carbon energy-saving transformation and upgrading goals, and actively seize the window of opportunity for the development of the industry to promote the further development and expansion of the green chemical industry.
After the groundbreaking ceremony, Zhong Changzhi, Wang Xiongchang, etc. also to PetroChina Guangxi Petrochemical Refining and Chemical Integration Transformation and Upgrading Project construction site, research and guidance of the project construction, encouraging enterprises and construction units to speed up the construction of the project, strengthen the construction safety management, and strive to create a first-class, and to promote the project to put into operation as soon as possible to see the effect of the industry to help the high-quality development of the state of Qinzhou.
