KBR’s phenol technology for LG Chem

By Gerald Ondrey |

KBR (Houston; www.kbr.com) was awarded a contract by LG Chem Ltd. (Seoul, South Korea; LG; www.lgchem.com) to license KBR’s leading phenol technology for LG’s 240,000 metric tons (m.t.) per year phenol plant in Daesan, South Korea. The Daesan plant will be the second license by LG for KBR’s phenol technology. The first phenol plant in Yesou was originally licensed in 2002 for 150,000 m.t./yr and later expanded to 240,000 m.t./yr. The new plant in Daesan will be part of an integrated, world-scale facility from cumene to bisphenol-A (BPA) production. KBR will also provide the necessary engineering services in order to help LG meet its project schedule, which is targeting to be on-stream during the first half of 2013.
