"The Catofin technology has been selected for 20 projects in the last five years," said Daniel McCarthy, president of CB&I's technology operating group. "This award is further testament to the success of the catofin technology and catalyst in allowing customers to process various feedstocks at ideal conditions for the highest yields."

"Catofin technology is a reliable and well proven technology. The first commercial propane dehydrogenation unit in China was based on Catofin technology and has been in successful operation since October 2013," highlights Stefan Heuser, senior vice president and head of business unit catalysts of Clariant.

Isobutylene will be used as a building block to produce MTBE and other downstream products.

Catfin is a registered trademark of Clariant.
