HOUSTON, US: KBR Inc (KBR) has been awarded both a license and engineering (LBED) and a proprietary equipment supply contract by Cangzhou Dahua New Materials Co Ltd (CDNM) to build a new polycarbonate plant in Cangzhou City, China.

Under the terms of the two contracts, KBR will provide its proprietary PCMAX technology, basic engineering design package and proprietary equipment supply for a 100,000 metric tonnes per annum single train plant in Cangzhou. CDNM intends to expand annual production at a later stage to 200,000 metric tonnes.

The plant will utilize KBR's phosgene-based interfacial polycarbonate PCMAX technology. KBR's unique PCMAX technology offers a wide range of high-quality product grades with minimal capital investment.

KBR globally licenses and designs polycarbonate synthesis and compounding plants as well as complementary phenolic technologies, including phenol/acetone, and bisphenol-A (BPA). KBR's integrated phenolics offering provides advantages in raw materials, utilities, OPEX and maintenance costs.

"KBR has been our most trustworthy partner for decades. The polycarbonate market in China is booming, and we believe that by choosing KBR's advanced technology, we can achieve the best quality of products and place ourselves in the leading position in this new market," said Xie Huasheng, chairman of CDNM.

"We are extremely pleased and honoured to be CDNM's strategic partner. China is one of our most important markets and KBR is excited to be a part of this significant project," said John Derbyshire, president, KBR technology and consulting.
