Developing an Integrated Propane Dehydrogenation Plant and Polypropylene Production Complex in Sturgeon County, Alberta
Canada Kuwait Petrochemical Corporation (CKPC) is a joint venture between Pembina Pipeline Corporation (Pembina) and Kuwait’s Petrochemical Industries Company (PIC). CKPC is proposing to construct a propane dehydrogenation (PDH) plant, a polypropylene (PP) plant, a cogeneration unit and a rail yard (the Complex) within Sturgeon County.
The complex will consume on average 23,000 barrels per day of propane to produce 550,000 tonnes of PP per year.
Finished PP will be loaded into rail cars for distribution to North American and global markets.
Polypropylene is one of the world’s most commonly used building blocks in the manufacturing industry and is fully recyclable. PP is lightweight, heat and impact resistant, transparent and not reactive. These attributes make PP an ideal foundation for products found in daily life including automobile parts, food storage containers, medical devices, bank notes, among many other uses.
