Stamicarbon secures license pact in Sub-Saharan Africa

Stamicarbon has secured a second license contract for an identical capacity and design plant. The bundle includes the correspondent proprietary equipment contracts to deliver the high-pressure equipment and the fluid bed granulation unit for the two trains of the plant.

The world-scale integrated ammonia and urea complex in Sub-Saharan Africa will have a capacity of 4,600 MTPD of ammonia and 8,000 MTPD of urea in two production trains. This grassroots project, which is expected to be operational in 2026, aims to address the growing demand for high-quality fertilizers in the region and, thanks to the plant’s strategic location, globally.

The state-of-the-art urea plants will use Stamicarbon’s proven pool condenser with MP Flash design bringing significant energy consumption reduction, and the granulation plant will use Stamicarbon’s fluid bed granulation technology. The plant design includes the integrated off-gases acidic scrubbing system that reduces ammonia emissions to a minimum, and the salts reworking technology, an innovative concept that eliminates the waste water stream. The high-pressure equipment will be in super durable duplex stainless steel Safurex®.

The facility will adhere to the highest efficiency and sustainability standards, incorporating technologies to reduce emissions.
