Lurgi to build an acrylic-acid plant in China

By Gerald Ondrey |

Lurgi GmbH (Frankfurt, Germany; www.lurgi.com) a company of Air Liquide S.A. (Paris, France), today announced that, in November, it received a contract from CNOOC Energy Technology & Services Ltd., a subsidiary of China National Offshore Oil Co., to build a plant for the production of acrylic acid from propylene. The product will in turn be used for the production of acrylates for paints and varnishes. The acrylate technology is provided by China Petroleum Engineering Company, Jilin. The scope for the single-train plant with a capacity of 140,000 ton/yr of ester-grade acrylic acid to be realized in Huizhou in the Chinese province of Guandong comprises the license, basic engineering, certain equipment as well as technical support. The total order value amounts to around 38-million euros. The plant is scheduled to go on stream in spring 2011. For Lurgi, this is the first order for an acrylic acid plant in China utilizing the state-of-the art Lurgi/Nippon Kayaku Acrylic Acid Process. The catalyst, produced by Nippon Kayaku, Japan as well as Lurgi’s experience in the field of process engineering will allow for an excellent product yield and on stream efficiency, says Lurgi.
