On 28 May 2018, PT Chandra Asri Petrochemical Tbk, through its subsidiary, PT Petrokimia Butadiene Indonesia, has awarded Toyo Engineering Corporation (TOYO) and Inti Karya Persada Tehnik (IKPT, TOYO’s Indonesian subsidiary) as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractors for the 127,000 tons/year Methyl Tert-Butyl Ether (MTBE) and 43,000 tons/year Butene-1 plants. Using the CDMtbe, BASF Selective Hydrogenation and Butene-1 Separation Technology from CB&I, the plants are going to be built in the existing petrochemical complex in Cilegon, Banten and become the first MTBE and Butene-1 plants in Indonesia. The plants with total investment of USD 114 million are expected to start commercial production in the third quarter of 2020.
The new plants will consume Raffinate-1, the by-product from the existing Butadiene unit as its raw material, thus making CAP the most integrated petrochemical complex in Indonesia.
