KBR has announced that Chambal Fertilizers and Chemicals (CFCL), Gadepan, India, has successfully commissioned a new plant using KBR’s PurifierTM ammonia technology, which is now the world’s most energy efficient plant per tonne of ammonia produced.
CFCL has two existing ammonia plants that were revamped by KBR in 2009 to increase production and lower energy consumption. CFCL constructed and commissioned its third ammonia plant with a production capacity of 2200 tpd, which has achieved an energy consumption even lower than the guaranteed value of 6.417 Gcal/t during its test run period, making it the world's most efficient ammonia plant.
"This is another proud milestone for KBR’s ammonia technology,” said Doug Kelly, KBR President, Technology Solutions. “We are committed to offering our partners energy-efficient and flexible solutions while always striving to improve upon industry benchmarks with many of them previously set by ourselves.”
