BASF Opens World39 S Largest PDH Plant

BASF Sonatrach PropanChem S.A. (BSP), a joint venture between Spain-based BASF Espa S.A. and Algeria-based Sonatrach Petroleum Investment Corp., has begun trial operation of a propane dehydrogenation (PDH) plant said to be the worlds largest at BASFs site in Tarragona, Spain.BSP invested 240 million euros in the plants construction the largest single investment in the Tarragona sites history and expects to create 70 jobs at the plant.The company chose the propane dehydrogenation process as an economical option, because only propylene is needed at the site.This is the first plant in Europe to operate using this innovative technology, said Jurgen Hartig, Ph.D., chairman of the board at BSP.In the coming years, this process will become increasingly important alongside the conventional steam cracker process for propylene.
