Lummus Technology was recently awarded a new contract from Numaligarh Refinery Ltd (NRL).

The award is for a new 360,000 tpy polypropylene (PP) unit using Novolen® technology at NRL’s refinery in Golaghat, Assam, India.

Lummus’ scope includes the technology license, basic design engineering, training, technical services and catalyst supply.

“We are honored to continue supporting NRL’s business and are grateful for their confidence in Lummus’ technologies,” said Leon de Bruyn, president and chief executive officer of Lummus Technology.

“Novolen is currently the industry’s most-licensed polypropylene technology throughout the world, including in India. This leading position is the result of continuous innovation and our customer commitment to provide technologies and solutions that yield maximum profitability, performance, and product quality and flexibility.”

In 2021, NRL licensed Indmax FCC technology from Lummus and LC-FINING technology from Chevron Lummus Global, a joint venture between Chevron and Lummus.
