KBR Awarded Contract for VAM Catalyst by Shenghong Refining, China

By Gerald Ondrey |

KBR (Houston) has been awarded a catalyst supply contract for a Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM) project by Shenghong Refining Petrochemical (Lianyungang) Co. Ltd., China. Under the terms of the agreement, KBR will provide proprietary catalyst for Shenghong’s grassroot 300,000 ton/yr VAM unit. The unit represents the first commercial VAM technology license and engineering contract under an alliance agreement between KBR and Showa Denko K.K.(SDK).

The KBR-SDK VAM technology is backed by more than 40 years of know-how accumulated through the safe and stable operation of SDK’s ethylene based VAM unit at the Oita Petrochemical Complex in Japan. VAM is a key intermediate for the production of polymers and resins for adhesives, coatings, paints, films, textiles and other products.
