(www.mairetecnimont.it), has signed a license agreement with Tierra del Fuego Energia Y Quimica S.A., an Argentina based company controlled by shareholders from China. The agreement concerns a urea synthesis plant and a urea granulation plant with a capacity of 2,700 metric tons (m.t.) per day to be built in southern Argentina. The urea synthesis plant will use the Stamicarbon Avancore technology, which was introduced in 2008. Taking full advantage of the benefits of utilizing Safurex stainless steel in the high-pressure synthesis section, the Avancore technology, which combines the benefits of all Stamicarbon’s earlier proven innovations, features zero oxygen intake, minimum equipment and minimum plant height. The granulation plant with a single line capacity of 2,700 m.t./d comprises the latest innovations in Stamicarbon granulation technology. Stamicarbon has already licensed 16 grass root granulation plants with capacities between 1,200 and 3,600 m.t./d. As of today, eight granulation plants are in operation, while eight more are under construction. Stamicarbon will deliver the PDP (Process Design Package),…
