Linde to build Alpha-SABLIN plant for LAO productions in Nizhnekamsk

09-Jul-12
Linde Engineering is set to build a new Alpha-SABLIN plant for the production of linear alpha olefins (LAO) in Nizhnekamsk, Russia. NKNH awarded Linde contracts for license, basic/detail engineering and supply of equipment and materials for revamping of NKNH’s existing LAO plant. Linde Engineering is set to build a new Alpha-SABLIN plant for the production of linear alpha olefins (LAO) in Nizhnekamsk, Russia. As per Business Standard, upon completion, the plant will be operated by Nizhnekamskneftekhim (NKNH). The plant is expected to come on-stream by mid of 2014, supplying NKNH with 37,000 tpa of linear alpha olefins with maximized production of C4 and C6 fractions. The revamp project will partially make use of the existing equipment of NKNH’s former LAO plant with implementation of Alpha-SABLIN technology, Linde officials said. Alpha-SABLIN is a flexible full range process for the production of linear alpha olefins by selective catalytic oligomerization of polymer-grade ethylene, jointly developed and owned by Linde Engineering and Saudi Basic Industries Corp. (SABIC).
