KBR Awarded Contract for a New BPA Project in China

By Gerald Ondrey |

KBR, Inc. (Houston; www.kbr.com) has been awarded a contract by Hainan Huasheng New Material Technology Co., Ltd. (Hainan Huasheng) to license Mitsubishi Chemical Corp’s (MCC) proprietary Bisphenol A (BPA) technology for a new plant in Dongfang City, Hainan Province, China.

Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide a licensing and basic engineering design (LBED) package to Hainan Huasheng for building a grassroots 240,000 tons per annum BPA plant. KBR will also provide commissioning, startup support, and training services for the project.

The BPA technology, licensed by KBR and owned by MCC, provides superior product quality with a minimum long-term cost of production. To date there are more than 600,000 tons per year of BPA produced using this technology.

“The quality of BPA product is essential to our downstream non-phosgene based polycarbonate unit. By using this advanced BPA process, which combines MCC’s operational knowledge and KBR’s phenolic chain experience, we are confident this project will be a great success,” says Yao Guangqian, GM of Hainan Huasheng New Material.
