Jacobs Engineering completed Huntsman iron sulfate plant construction

PASADENA, US: Jacobs Engineering Group Inc completed Huntsman Pigments’ new €38 million iron sulfate plant at its titanium dioxide (TiO2) pigment manufacturing facility in Scarlino, Italy. The construction was completed on 1 July 2014. Jacobs worked with Huntsman to execute the project by providing engineering and design, procurement assistance, construction management and project management services for the project, which involved safely integrating the new facility into the existing operating plant.

Once commissioned, the new iron sulfate plant is expected to enable Huntsman to use a wider range of feedstock in its pigment production, reduce gypsum generation and convert spent acid from the manufacturing process into iron sulfate products for application in other markets.

“We are delighted to have worked alongside Huntsman to support this strategic project. We were able to leverage our global experience in complex chemical facilities, and our long working relationship with Huntsman gave us an integral understanding of their business drivers and operations,” said Edward Pagano, Vice President, Jacobs.
