Stamicarbon delivers remote revamp study for Monómeros Colombo Venezolanos nitric acid plant
Stamicarbon's Ammonium Nitrate - Nitric Acid (ANNA) team has delivered a revamp study for Monómeros Colombo Venezolanos mono-pressure nitric acid plant in Barranquilla, Colombia. The growing demand for fertilizers based on Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium (NPKs), which use nitric acid as a feedstock, triggered Monómeros to look for ways to produce more nitric acid at their own facility, and Stamicarbon being the original licensor could offer the most complete view of the project. The plant pre-assessment work and all stages of the project that followed took place virtually and the complete report for increasing and optimizing production, outlining two revamp options, was delivered successfully after six months.
