Largest Ultra-Low Energy urea plant planned for China

Stamicarbon has signed a contract covering the process design package, licensing and equipment supply for a grassroots urea plant in Jiangxi province, China. The new urea plant will be the largest Stamicarbon Ultra-Low Energy plant built, with a design capacity of 3850 MTPD, and the seventh plant built based on this innovative design.
Stamicarbon will deliver the Process Design Package and the proprietary Safurex® super duplex stainless steel high-pressure equipment and associated services for the urea melt and prilling plant. The new plant will apply the Ultra-Low Energy principle to the Pool Condenser.
The Ultra-Low Energy Design allows heat supplied as high-pressure steam to be used three times instead of two, reducing steam consumption by about 35% and cooling water consumption by about 16% compared to traditional CO2 stripping processes, as demonstrated in two plants currently operating.
“This award is significant, being Stamicarbon’s largest Ultra-Low Energy urea plant to date and the first plant where this breakthrough technology is applied to a pool condenser. It shows Stamicarbon’s commitment to innovation and technology development to improve the sustainability of the fertiliser industry,” said Pejman Djavdan, Stamicarbon CEO.
