Australian Firm Advances Urea Plan

Department: Business
Keywords: Australia, urea, Perdaman

Australia's Perdaman Chemicals & Fertilisers has lined up technology providers for a $2.7 billion urea plant it plans to build in Western Australia. The plant will use coal as a feedstock. Shell will provide coal gasification and gas treatment technology, Haldor Topsøe will provide ammonia synthesis technology, and DSM's Stamicarbon unit will provide ammonia-to-urea technology. Perdaman says the plant will start up in 2013 and produce 2 million metric tons of urea per year.
