USA: Engineering KBR Wins Dual Contracts to Build New Polycarbonate Plant in China
US-company KBR intends to use its proprietary Pcmaxtm technology for CDNM’s 100,000 metric tonnes per annum single train plant in Cangzhou, China. The plant will be run by Cangzhou Dahua.
Houston/USA – Engineering company KBR has recently announced that it has been awarded both a license and engineering (LBED) and a proprietary equipment supply contract by Cangzhou Dahua New Materials (CDNM) to build a new polycarbonate plant in Cangzhou City, China.
Under the terms of the two contracts, KBR will provide its proprietary Pcmaxtm technology, basic engineering design package and proprietary equipment supply for a 100,000 metric tonnes per annum single train plant in Cangzhou. CDNM intends to expand annual production at a later stage to 200,000 metric tonnes. The plant will utilize KBR’s phosgene-based interfacial polycarbonate Pcmaxtm technology. KBR’s unique Pcmaxtm technology offers a wide range of high quality product grades with minimal capital investment.
KBR globally licenses and designs polycabonate synthesis and compounding plants as well as complementary phenolic technologies, including phenol/acetone, and bisphenol-A (BPA). The company’s integrated phenolics offering provides advantages in raw materials, utilities, OPEX and maintenance costs.
Revenue associated with this project was booked into backlog of unfilled orders for KBR’s Technology and Consulting Business Segment in the fourth quarter of 2017.
