Hualu, as navigator pioneer in the development of the fine chemical industry development in China, has achieved a suite of patent and proprietary technologies based on our distinguished research and development strength together with abundant engineering practices, with capability to supply to customers project services starting from process design package preparation through to EPCC construction.
Hualu has completed the first 10 kt/a MA plant in China and the largest MA plant in the world with a single train capacity of 100 kt/a. Hualu has also completed the first 8 kt/a DMF plant in China and the largest scale DMF plant in the world with a single train capacity of 100 kt/a. Hualu’s proprietary process technology for production of CMS has been licensed in more than ten plants worldwide, accounting for 80%+ of the total CMS output in China..
Hualu has witnessed the entire development history of 2-EH/butanols in China, by building the 1st gas-phase low-pressure carbonylation plant in 1986, the 1st liquid-phase low-pressure carbonylation plant in 1998, the biggest single train octyl alcohol plant in 2003. The aggregate outputs of 2-EH/butanols produced from facilities designed and constructed by Hualu account for more than 80% of the national total.
Hualu has also designed and constructed the first 20 kt/a commercial BDO plant based on Reppe route, and the largest 200 kt/a BDO plant in China using the same process technology.
