NOIDA, INDIA: Nuberg has been awarded a contract by El Nasr Co for Intermediate Chemicals (NCIC) for technology, engineering and construction of hydrogen peroxide plant in Giza, Egypt.

The €15 million turnkey project will manufacture hydrogen peroxide of technical, chemical and food grade with production capacity of 70 tonnes per day (50 percent H2O2). Nuberg's scope of services includes technology, process know-how, basic and detailed engineering, project management, supply and supervision of erection and construction work as well as supervision services during start-up and commissioning.

Hydrogen peroxide technology licensor for the project is EB Nuberg, a Swedish R&D firm specializing in developing technologies for speciality chemicals. EB Nuberg will offer proprietary, high-yield hydrogen peroxide technology and process design services for the establishment of the facility.

The plant production process will be based on the latest, state-of-the-art auto-oxidation technology developed and improvised by EB Nuberg Sweden over the years, having most efficient process design for hydrogen peroxide in comparison to available technologies in market. The hydrogen peroxide manufacturing process involves cyclic hydrogenation and oxidation of the working solution followed by extraction of crude H2O2 from the working solution. Thus, the plant will comprise three main sections viz hydrogenation, oxidation and extraction section.

The contract-signing ceremony took place in presence of AK Tyagi, chairman and managing director of Nuberg, Er. Mokhtar A Mostafa, chairman and managing director of El Nasr Co for intermediate chemicals and dignitaries from both the companies.

"We are glad that our capabilities and world-class project execution quality is being recognised internationally. Egypt is one of the most promising markets for us.

This newly signed agreement will strengthen our strategic position in Egypt where we are already executing number of turnkey projects," said AK Tyagi.
