Jacobs awarded design work on Chinese sulfuric acid regeneration plant

Jacobs Engineering Group was awarded a contract by China-based Jiangsu Sailboat Petrochemical Co. for the design of a sulfuric acid regeneration plant in Lianyungang, Jiangsu, officials said on Tuesday.

Officials did not disclose the contract value.

Under the terms of the contract, Jacobs is providing the process design package, detailed design for critical equipment, design and supply of Jacobs' proprietary Chemetics equipment, as well as technical advisory services for construction and commissioning of the plant.

The regeneration plant is expected to treat spent acid from a new methylmethacrylate (MMA) and acrylonitrile (AN) production facility, and is the first regeneration plant in mainland China to use a combination of Jacobs’ proprietary SAR (sulfuric acid regeneration) and SAC (sulfuric acid concentration) technologies in an effort to reduce overall energy requirements for the facility.

 “We are pleased that our proprietary SAC and SAR technologies are being adopted by Jiangsu Sailboat for its new sulfuric acid regeneration plant," said Jacobs vice president Andy Kremer.

"We look forward to working together with Jiangsu Sailboat to deliver a successful project.”
