HOUSTON, US: KBR has been awarded a contract for engineering and procurement services for DuPont’s first cellulosic ethanol plant in Nevada, US. KBR will provide front-end engineering, detailed engineering and procurement services to DuPont’s Industrial Biosciences Group for this first-of-a-kind plant to be constructed in the Midwest United States.

The ethanol facility is designed to process 1,300 tonne per day of corn stover and produce 27.5 million gallons of ethanol per year. The cellulosic ethanol product will be used as a blending component in gasoline by fuel manufacturers and will enable them to meet US EPA-mandated requirements for ethanol derived from cellulosic sources.

“KBR and DuPont have a long-standing partnership and a history of successful project execution. This award further affirms and solidifies KBR’s 20-plus year partnership with DuPont in the safe and efficient development and execution of capital projects, and reinforces KBR’s position as an EPC leader in bio fuels projects,” said David Zelinski, President, Downstream, KBR.
