Yidu Xingfa Chemical Co. Ltd. (Xingfa) has awarded DuPont Clean Technologies contracts for the engineering and technology license for a 3,600 MTPD MECS® MAX3™ sulfuric acid plant. This project will make the Xingfa sulfuric acid plant one of the largest in China.
Xingfa is expanding its existing site, located in the Hubei province near Yichang city, with the aim of roughly doubling the phosphate fertilizer capacity. The new MECS® MAX3™ sulfuric acid plant will process 1,200,000 tons of sulfuric acid per year, as well as support the production of an additional 400,000 tons per year of phosphoric acid, 400,000 tons per year DAP and 35,000 tons per year of potassium phosphate monobasic.
The new MECS® MAX3™ sulfuric acid plant will enable the Xingfa site to meet or exceed the Chinese Ministry of Environmental Protection’s strict emission requirements which govern the location in the sensitive Yangtze river basin area. “DuPont Clean Technologies is very pleased to be providing its proprietary MECS® MAX3™ technology for Xingfa’s expansion project to enable the company to become one of the most efficient fertilizer producers in China. This MAX3™ sulfuric acid plant is not only a significant step for both DuPont and Xingfa, but also for the sulfuric acid industry,” said Eli Ben-Shoshan, president of DuPont Clean Technologies, “Never before has sulfuric acid technology delivered more value to the end user. MAX3™ not only offers sulfuric acid plants savings in water usage, time and money, but it also allows them to recover more…
