Superior expertise for ultra-low emissions in urea manufacturing has been delivered outdoors the US. The MicroMist™ Venturi (MMV) Scrubber is superior moist scrubbing expertise developed and optimised by Stamicarbon and EnviroCare Worldwide.
The modular scrubber was delivered on time to a brand new urea soften and granulation undertaking within the Russian Federation. The Volgafert LLC plant is at the moment beneath development in Tolyatti, within the nation’s western Samara area.
Two urea crops within the US already characteristic this scrubbing expertise and have achieved ultra-low urea mud emissions (each particulate and condensables) beneath the utilized stringent authorities necessities (lower than 10 mg/Nm3 for one plant and fewer than 5 mg/Nm3 for the opposite). In the meantime, opacity assessments discovered that the crops produce zero plume.
“As we’ve already seen in america, emissions restrictions have gotten extra stringent and we anticipate the remainder of the world to comply with go well with,” stated Stamicarbon Licensing Supervisor at Wilfried Dirkx. “Laws apart, a number of producers are already seeking to discover extra environment friendly, dependable, maintenance-free and sustainable options.”
There are already two extra orders within the pipeline, each from prospects outdoors North America.
Robert Yates, EnviroCare Worldwide Engineering Supervisor, stated that the MMV Scrubber expertise may also be included into current crops to retrofit outdated scrubbing expertise.
“With cellular tools, we’ve the potential to carry out pilot assessments to display our expertise on location, over just a few weeks or just a few months. We are able to alter our tools to optimise totally different design variables, reminiscent of incorporating a brand new expertise, operating totally different stress drops or injecting totally different chemical substances,” stated Yates.
The brand new expertise removes submicron filterable particulate, condensable particulate, and soluble gases at very excessive efficiencies with low power enter, whereas lowering liquid effluent waste streams.
The deliberate greenfield urea plant can be operated by Volgafert LLC, a three way partnership between Russian fertilizer producer KuibyshevAzot and the Maire Tecnimont Group (involving Stamicarbon as licensor and Tecnimont (PL) as EPC contractor). With a capability of 540 000 tpy, the plant will characteristic Stamicarbon’s LAUNCH MELT Pool Reactor™ expertise and fluid mattress granulation expertise.
