Davy and JM Catalysts selected for new SNG plant in China  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Davy Process Technology (Davy; London; www.davyprotech.com) and Johnson Matthey Catalysts (JM Catalysts; Royston, U.K.; www.jmcatalysts.com) both part of Johnson Matthey Plc (www.matthey.com) have entered into contracts with Liaoning Datang International Fuxin Coal to Gas Co. for a plant to produce Substitute Natural Gas (SNG) from coal. The scope of the project includes a technology licence, basic engineering design, catalysts and support services for the methanation unit that converts synthesis gas (syngas) to SNG. SNG is an important part of the energy picture in China as it provides a clean-burning fuel suitable for domestic use that can be conveniently transported by pipeline. This replaces less convenient fuels such as coal or LPG and will make a significant contribution to reducing air pollution as well as increasing security of energy supply to major Chinese cities The new plant will be located in XinQiu District, Fuxin City, Liaoning Province, China, and have a capacity of 4,000,000 Nm3/d of SNG. This will be the fourth major SNG project that Davy/JM Catalysts have licensed in China.   The selected methanation technology has been chosen from an extensive portfolio of processes available from Davy and JM Catalysts…
