KBR’s Magnac high-concentration nitric acid technology has been selected for producing high concentration nitric acid at Grupa Azoty's plant in Poland. KBR will also be responsible for providing detailed engineering design, equipment and other related services for the unit.

Houston/USA – KBR has recently been awarded a contract to utilise its proprietary Plinke Magnac technology to produce high concentration nitric acid at Grupa Azoty's Tarnow site in Poland.

KBR will provide basic and detailed engineering design, equipment, and related advisory services for the plant, which will be built adjacent to an existing plant that was also supplied by KBR and has been in operation since 1998.

Magnac is used to produce 98.5 wt % high-concentration nitric acid from fresh, weak nitric acid. KBR's proven process and patented, unique equipment design and material selection ensure plant availability and reliability to deliver a high-value product to the market.
