G.I.Dynamics BV has been awarded License and FEED package for a Maleic Anhydride Production facility
August 5, 2014
Netherland, August, 2014
A Consortium (OCC) of Ran Group RBS Holding LLC and Green Light LLC of the Russian federation has awarded to G.I. Dynamics B.V. (GID) together with Petron Scientech Inc. (PSI) the Technology License, FEED, Engineering and proprietary equipment for two trains 50KTPA of Maleic Anhydride facility at OMSK Polymer plant site. Subsequently OCC will build a 50 KTPA of BDO plant using the produced MA as its raw material. Total project will have cost of approximately 500 MUSD.
The Maleic Anhydride technology is using n-butane feedstock, fixed bed reactors and an aqueous recovery process. The Front End Engineering will start in September 2014.The plant will be designed and built in phases with an aim to have the first unit start up in Q1 2017.
Maleic Anhydride applications Maleic Anhyride (MA) is used primarily in formation of Unsaturated Polyester Resins (UPRs), 1-4 Butanediol (BDO), polymeric resins and also as a basic chemical used in automotive, shipbuilding, paint and varnish, construction, agricultural industries. Fifty percent of the produced MA from OCC is aimed to be used for BDO production. BDO serves as an essential building block for Tetrahydrofuran (THF) production. THF is a valuable industrial solvent and a precursor topolymer production.
Ruslan Barkovskiy (Chairman of Green Light/OCC): "Implementation of MA and BDO Project is of great socio-economic importance for the Omsk region and development of engineering plastics production in Russian Federation. OCC will have an enormous opportunity to build a combined MA/BDO complex and together with G.I. Dynamics we have a professional partner on board to make this project successful."
Wim van der Zande (Managing Director of G.I. Dynamics): "This project will be performed together with Petron Scientech Inc. (provider of the technology knowhow) and will be the basis for a world class production facility. We are looking forward to work together with OCC on this project."
About Greenlight LLC: Green Light is the owner of the industrial site of Omsk polymer (the plant). In order to diversify technological capacities by using engineering infrastructure of the plant and cooperation on raw materials supply together with partners from Omsk Chemical Corporation, Green Light execute the Project for maleic anhydride and BDO production on the plant site.
