KBR awarded contract to build new polycarbonate plant in China

By Gerald Ondrey |

KBR, Inc. (Houston; www.kbr.com) says it has been awarded both a license and engineering (LBED) and a proprietary equipment supply contract by Cangzhou Dahua New Materials Co., Ltd. (CDNM) to build a new polycarbonate plant in Cangzhou City, China.

Under the terms of the two contracts, KBR will provide its proprietary PCMAX technology, basic engineering design package and proprietary equipment supply for a 100,000 metric ton per year (m.t./yr) single-train plant in Cangzhou. CDNM intends to expand production at a later stage to 200,000 m.t./yr.

The plant will utilize KBR’s phosgene-based interfacial polycarbonate PCMAX technology, which is said to offer a wide range of high quality product grades with minimal capital investment.
