Honeywell Technology Licensed by PKN ORLEN for New Phenol Complex in Poland

Honeywell has announced that PKN ORLEN, a leading company in Central and Eastern Europe, plans to use its UOP Q-Max and Phenol 3G technologies to produce 200,000 metric tons per annum of phenol at its facility in Poland. The technologies will allow PKN ORLEN to extend its benzene production into phenol and acetone derivatives, meeting the growing demand for these petrochemicals in Poland and potentially becoming a net exporter.
