KBR to provide licensing of its Purifer Ammonia technology

By Gerald Ondrey |

KBR (Houston; www.kbr.com) has been awarded a contract by Matix Fertilisers and Chemicals Limited (MFCL) — a Matix Group Co. owned by Kanoria family in India — to provide licensing and engineering services for MFCL’s grassroots 2,200 metric tons per day (m.t./d) ammonia plant located in West Bengal, India. MFCL is setting up the largest ammonia/urea (1.3 million ton/yr) manufacturing facilities in the country, along with Captive Power Plant, utilities, infrastructure and railway siding in the complex.  KBR will license its Purifier Ammonia technology for the Matix plant, which will be based on coal-bed methane. The use of coal-bed methane as feedstock in the ammonia synthesis process is a relatively new application that provides an alternative to the use of natural gas in areas where coal is abundant.
