KBR technology selected for two polycarbonate plants in China

By Mary Page Bailey |

KBR, Inc. (Houston; www.kbr.com) announced that it has been awarded a license and engineering and a proprietary equipment supply contract by China Pingmei Shenma Group (PMSM) to build two new polycarbonate plants in Kaifeng and Pingdingshan in the Henan Province in China.

Under the terms of the contracts, both 100,000 metric tons per year (m.t./yr) plants will utilize KBR’s proprietary phosgene-based interfacial polycarbonate technology PCMAXT. As part of its overall polycarbonate strategy, PMSM intends to expand its total production capacity to 800,000 m.t./yr.

KBR’s PCMAX technology produces a wide range of polycarbonate product grades with minimal capital investment.

“KBR is a world-leading technology licensor,” said Yang Jianguo, General Manager of PMSM. “The polycarbonate project using KBR’s advanced PCMAX technology is the largest technology import project for PMSM in recent years. This project supports China’s requirement for advanced and high-quality developments as well as PMSM’s corporate vision of industrial transformation and upgrading.”

“KBR is excited to be part of this major investment project. Growing demand for polycarbonate products in China presents an attractive opportunity for PMSM,” said John Derbyshire, President, KBR Technology. “KBR’s superior PCMAX technology will empower PMSM to be a market leader in the polycarbonate business.”
