Clariant, KBR supply turnkey design for ammonia synthesis in Indonesia

MUNICH – Clariant announced that it is providing total catalyst solutions for two major ammonia production plants in Indonesia, in cooperation with its licensing partner KBR. The new projects rely on KBR’s process technologies combined with a complete range of Clariant catalysts for the entire ammonia production process.

The key catalysts selected for the projects include AmoMax 10 for ammonia synthesis, ReforMax 330 LDP and ReforMax 210 LDP for reforming, as well as ShiftMax 120, ShiftMax 217 and ShiftMax 210 for high temperature shift (HTS) and low temperature shift (LTS) reactions.

Awarded in 2015, the Indonesian projects are part of a cooperation between Clariant’s Catalysts business and KBR, which effectively unites the partners’ solutions for ammonia synthesis into tangible and substantial benefits for producers.

“We are delighted to collaborate with KBR on these important assignments in Indonesia,” said Stefan Heuser, Senior Vice President & General Manager Business Unit Catalysts at Clariant. “It validates the strength and success of our partnership – one that not only benefits our two companies, but also, and more importantly, our customers. The projects also demonstrate Clariant’s commitment to driving sustainable ammonia synthesis through continuous innovation.”
