I finished my B.Tech. Chemical Engineering in 2012 and joined Cetex Petrochemicals Ltd. in Technical Service & Business Development team. Our company is the one and only manufacturer of Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK) via Secondary Butanol (as an Intermediate) in India. We indulged in expansion of MEK unit activities adding additional capacity of 7,500 MTPA with existing unit of 5,000 MTPA to total capacity of 12,500 MTPA. Commissioning also on the track, planned to start up of the new unit scheduled on Jan 2014.
In the meanwhile, Cortex had purchased SHELL’s MIBK (Methyl Iso Butyl Ketone) Plant located in Deer Park, Houston, Texas, US. Actually I am working in MIBK project – relocation of MIBK plant from Deer Park to Manali. MIBK Plant capacity is 30,000 MTPA with other produced includes MIBC (Methyl Iso Butyl Carbinol) and Hexylene Glycol adding up to a total outcome of nearly 50,000 MTPA. The dismantling work started and scheduled to bring the dismantled plant within Cetex Factory site, Manali by this year end. The Erection & Commissioning will take sometime approx. one and half years, that's what we set the clock to finish the relocation and Start up scheduled in the mid of 2015. I am proud to be part of the team.
