Nuberg wins Hydrogen Peroxide Turnkey Project at Giza, Egypt

By Gerald Ondrey |

El Nasr Co. for Intermediate Chemicals (NCIC) has entrusted Nuberg Engineering Ltd. (Noida, India; www.nubergepc.com), as a single-point solution company — from concept to commissioning — with a contract for technology, engineering and construction of a hydrogen peroxide plant in Giza, Egypt. The €15-million turnkey project will manufacture hydrogen peroxide (50 vol.%; technical, chemical & food grade) with production capacity of 70 tons per day. Nuberg’s scope of services includes technology, process know-how, basic and detailed engineering, project management, supply and supervision of erection and construction work as well as supervision services during start-up and commissioning.


Hydrogen peroxide technology licensor for the project is EB Nuberg (Gunnilse, Sweden), a Swedish R&D firm specializing in developing technologies for specialty chemicals. EB Nuberg will offer proprietary, high-yield hydrogen peroxide technology and process design services for the establishment of facility. The plant production process will be based on the latest, state-of-the-art auto-oxidation technology developed and improvised by EB Nuberg Sweden over the years, having most efficient process design for hydrogen peroxide in comparison to available technologies in market, says the company. The hydrogen peroxide manufacturing process involves cyclic hydrogenation and oxidation of the working solution followed by extraction of crude H2O2 from the working solution. Thus the plant will comprise three main sections, namely hydrogenation, oxidation and extraction.


This project comes as another milestone for Nuberg in Egypt, as it is the fourth consecutive specialty chemical turnkey project for the company. Nuberg has already received three turnkey projects in Egypt namely, a caustic soda plant for Egyptian Petrochemical Co. in Alexandria, a calcium chloride plant for TCI Sanmar Chemical in Port Said and a sulfuric acid plant for Agrochem in Alexandria.
