Leuna-Harze GmbH builds new plant: EPC Engineering & Technologies takes over planning of the PHENOL-3 plant
Turn two into three: Leuna-Harze GmbH reacts to the increased market demand for phenolic resins and has a third production plant built to meet it. EPC Engineering & Technologies GmbH is in charge of the complete engineering including procurement for this project.
The plant will be built on a newly developed site north of the existing Leuna-Harze plant complex at the Leuna chemical site. Construction and assembly work began in June 2020 and will be completed in June 2021.
The product portfolio and production capacity correspond to those of the predecessor plants in a process that has been partially modified in terms of energy and materials.
The building structure and the proven plant technology were largely adapted from the predecessor plants, whereby the instrumentation and control and process control technology was extensively upgraded. The auxiliary systems and the connection to the existing plant were completely redesigned.
