Stamicarbon (MAIRE Group) awarded licensing and equipment supply contracts by Jiangsu Huachang Chemical Company for an Ultra-Low Energy urea melt plant in China
Sittard, The Netherlands — Jiangsu Huachang Chemical Company awards to Stamicarbon, the nitrogen technology licensor of the MAIRE engineering group, licensing and equipment supply contracts for a urea melt plant in China. The plant located in Zhangjiagang City of Jiangsu province in China will have a capacity of 1860 MTPD and use Stamicarbon’s Ultra-Low Energy design with a highly efficient pool reactor concept.
This urea melt plant will serve as a replacement for an outdated facility of similar capacity and will utilize the existing prilling unit. Stamicarbon will provide the license, proprietary equipment, including high-pressure equipment made of super duplex stainless steel, and associated professional services.
The main advantage of Stamicarbon's Ultra-Low Energy Design, which will be utilized in this plant, is that the high-pressure steam is being used three times instead of two, making the process more energy-efficient than the conventional CO2 stripping. This heat recovery scheme results in a 35% reduction in steam consumption and a 16% decrease in cooling water use. With two plants currently in operation, the Ultra-Low Energy design is demonstrating unparalleled energy savings in the market.
"Sustainability is at the core of our company, and when looking to replace our outdated urea plant, we were specifically seeking the most energy-efficient solution to help us reduce emissions and energy consumption. With Ultra-Low Energy technology, we expect to achieve a substantial reduction in steam and water consumption, contributing significantly to our sustainability goals. We look forward to a successful and mutually beneficial partnership with Stamicarbon as we work together on this project," said Mr. Hu Bo, the Chairman of Jiangsu Huachang Chemical Company.
"At Stamicarbon, we are committed to pioneering sustainable solutions, and Ultra-Low Energy design stands out as a testament to our dedication. We believe that this project marks a significant milestone in Jiangsu Huachang 's journey towards a more sustainable and efficient future. This project marks the ninth worldwide implementation of our groundbreaking technology, a testament to its global recognition as the industry's benchmark for energy consumption and efficiency," said Pejman Djavdan, Stamicarbon CEO.
