KOREA (SOUTH): GS Caltex plans Yeosu paraxylene plant

CB&I said it will provide the license, basic engineering and catalyst for the plant, which will have "a world scale" design capacity. The unit, expected to begin production in 2016, will use the BP paraxylene technology, exclusively licensed by CB&I.

The technology employs an innovative energy-efficient crystallization process and will provide GS Caltex with a reliable, low cost solution for its plant.
